$250.00This revered vineyard was planted in 1865 and it celebrates an incredible legacy and history of Australian Shiraz. Located just north or Auburn, the Attunga Vineyard is still producing fruit commercially today and in certain years is released as a single vineyard wine of widespread acclaim.
Cropping levels of just over one tonne per acre in an average year, the vineyard produces fruit that is small, concentrated and unique. Traditional management practices and techniques, including individual berry sorting at harvest time, ensures only the highest quality shiraz makes it to the winery.
Deep red in colour with vibrant crimson hues.
A dark and brooding nose, bitumen and tar, fennel, chocolate with hints of wood smoke and charcuterie superbly interwoven.
Opulently textured but offering surprising balance and poise, the primary flavours of dark chocolate, cherry plums and licorice impressively arrive then seamlessly lead into a long finish wrapped in smoked meats, finely positioned tannins and positive acid structure. A wine to enjoy now, but with further cellaring, a wine to celebrate the ages with.
$550.00At the very pinnacle of our Kilikanoon portfolio is Revelation; a celebration of the very best wine made at Kilikanoon in any given year. Unrestrained by varietal, vineyard or regional convention, this wine represents a blend that surpasses all those other wines beneath it.
The inaugral vintage of Revelation in 2010 was created from two estate grown Clare Valley Shiraz vineyards. Made in tiny quantities and using traditional winemaking techniques, the wine was matured in 100% new French oak hogsheads for 24 months before bottling both unfined and unfiltered. It has been given well over eighteen months to further improve and mature in the bottle before release.
Inky purple in the glass.
Compelling and explosive on the nose, waves of tobacco, liquorice, tar and smoky oak notes overwhelm the senses.
Sweet dark cherries, tar and earthen spices flood the palate. Rich and textural, the wine deftly combines it's mouth filling quantities, juicy natural acidity and fine grained tannins in a long, rewarding finish.
