Kilikanoon receives high praise from Jeremy Oliver, with a recent release of scores and reviews from the writer and critis.



Mort’s Block Riesling

92 Points - Young and lean, this searingly intense and taut riesling reveals a penetrative fragrance of lime juice, mineral and lemon zest. It’s long and chalky, and just needs time to flesh out.

94 Points - Austere and penetrative; pristine lime/white peach flavour, lemony acids.

Mort’s Reserve Riesling

96 Points - Lavender and apple blossom perfume, mouthfilling and tightly focused; chalky.

Pearce Road Semillon

94 Points - Smoky melon, vanilla oak and nettle-like notes, long and fresh.

Prodigal Grenache

92 Points - A soft, smooth Burgundy styled grenache whose slightly meaty, creamy and earthy aromas of blueberries, blood plums and nutmeg reveal a hint quince.
Packed with fruit, it’s gentle and luscious, long and complete, with a charming length of fruit underpinned by soft, plaint tannins, finishing with a lingering meatiness.

Prophecy Shiraz

95 Points - Smooth and almost mataro-like, this supple and gentle Barossa shiraz has a faintly meaty perfume of white flowers, dark plums and blackberries, blueberries and fresh creamy vanilla oak.
It’s soft and ethereal, pliant and pruney, with a long, harmonious palate of restrained fruit, pliant tannins and a gentle acidity.

Attunga Mataro

94 Points - Classic savoury older style wine, with a wild, heady and alluring perfume and a smooth, gentle, but deliciously vibrant palate.
Briary flavour of blackberries and plums underpinned by firmish, loose-knit tannins are underpinned by creamy, meaty aspects before finishing with length and drive.

Baudinet Blend GSM

95 Points -
Measured, stylish and deeply flavoured, this fullish to medium weight red has a densely packed, earthy bouquet of peppery aromas, bright fruits and meaty, spicy chocolatey undertones.
It’s smooth, juicy and generous, with a long, vibrant presence of lively fruit and meaty, chocolatey aspects underpinned by a fine, chalky backbone, finishing with softness and a lingering note of licorice.

Covenant Shiraz

91 Points - An elegant, softer and more gentle shiraz whose juicy aromas of cassis, blackberries,
blueberries and redcurrants and fresh cedar/vanilla oak are backed by notes of black pepper, spicy notes of clove and cinnamon plus a suggestion of animal hide.
It’s long and complete, with a fine, dusty spine supporting its long and vivacious palate, finishing with gentle acids and a lingering hint of five spice.


Duke Reserve Grenache

94 Points - Long, smooth and fine-grained, this stylish grenache has a brambly, rather meaty bouquet of figs, raisins and raspberries backed by a suggestions of quince and earthy, funky nuances.
It’s medium to full-bodied, with a measured, polished expression of bright, deep and translucent flavours of red and blue fruits that become quite meaty and savoury towards its long, refreshing finish.


Kelly 1932 Grenache

93 Points - Subtle, ethereal and stylish, this fragrant, meaty and musky grenache reveals aromas of licorice, sweet red cherries, blood plums, baked earth and a hint of mint.
It’s generous and juicy, round and mouthfilling, with and opulent but medium to full-bodied presence of fruit supported by firmish, powdery tannins that extend with length and drive towards a gentle finish.


Killerman’s Run Shiraz

90 Points - Soft but vibrant, this wild and briary shiraz is a delightful early-drinking red whose spicy, peppery expression of small berry flavour is carefully matched with creamy cedary oak and a pliant spine of supple tannins.
Punctuated by a bright acidity, its lingering core of fruit finishes with pleasing balance and a note of licorice.


Tregea Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

95 Points - Minty and herbal, with classical long-term depth, elegance and sinewy spine.


"He demonstrates a brilliant touch with Riesling as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The cuvees produced under the 'Killerman's Run' label all represent terrific bargains"
