About Kilikanoon Wines
Kilikanoon was founded in 1997 when Kevin Mitchell purchased the picturesque Kilikanoon property nestled in the hamlet of Penwortham. Since then, the winery has evolved from a modest, inaugural vintage of four single vineyard wines into a Clare Valley institution, with Kevin’s fascination in terroir being the driving force of Kilikanoon’s winemaking philosophy.
Kilikanoon was thrust into the national spotlight when it won six of the seven trophies awarded at the 2002 Clare Valley Wine Show.
Since then, its signature ‘Oracle Shiraz’ has been voted World’s Best Shiraz three times in eleven years, as well as being listed in the Langton’s Classification as “Excellent”. In 2013 Kilikanoon was awarded Australian Winery of the Year by James Halliday, as well as holding an elusive 5 Red-Star Rating since 2008.
