A Shiraz blend made from Kilikanoon’s Baroota vineyards north east of Clare. A very unique site that lies between the peaks of the Southern Flinders Ranges and the sparkling waters of the Spencer Gulf.
The lead up to the 2018 vintage was cool and dry, however large rainfall events in early January quenched the vines’ thirst, and allowed for even ripening and complex flavour development. Grapes are sourced from estate vineyards and selected growers, providing consistency of style year after year.
Parcels of Shiraz were harvested at optimal levels of ripeness, vinified separately before being pressed into stainless steel with French oak staves. It was then cellared for twelve months before blending and bottling both unfined and unfiltered.
Dark crimson red.
Ripe red fruits, black currant and cherry with subtle oak undertones.
Plenty of primary fruit with bright, juicy red berries, cherries and plums. Fine balanced tannins and subtle oak carry the fruit to a pleasant finish.
Now until 2025
