Australian Shiraz has long been considered the workhorse of the Australian wine industry, it’s character well defined by this hard working ‘lackey’ of a wine punching well above its weight. Kilikanoon has selected premium parcels of Shiraz fruit from various regions of South Australia to craft a wine of outstanding presence and refinement.

Bright ruby. Fresh red berries and peppery spices on the nose and in the mouth. Juicy and tight, with good back-end cut and lift. Dusty tannins add finishing shape and grip. Much of the fruit that's normally designated for Kilikanoon's top shiraz bottlings wound up in this wine in this difficult vintage.-JR
