2003 Blocks Road Cabernet Sauvignon - Back Vintage

Kilikanoon Wines


All fruit used in the 2003 Blocks Road Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from estate grown vineyards in the Watervale area of the Clare Valley. The majority of the fruit is dry grown and is both hand pruned and hand picked. Yields average 2-3 tonnes per acre.

  • Winemaking

    Traditional methods of vinification were used, fermentation
    taking place in small open fermenters and gently processed
    through a basket press. Once blended the wine matured in a
    selection of new and used French oak hogsheads for two years.

    Deep inky / crimson red with distinct purple hues, a blend of
    violets, liquorice and small berry fruits on the nose integrated
    with subtle perfumed French oak flavours.

  • The palate combines leafy berry fruit flavours with hints of
    chocolate / liquorice that complex well with French oak. Wine
    has a tight acidity with a slightly drying firm tannin finish and a
    balanced alcohol smoothness that provides good palate length and

  • An ageing potential of at least 12 - 15 years with careful
    Alcohol 14.5%
