This exclusive back vintage release of the Prophecy Shiraz, available only to Kilikanoon Wine Club members, has been composed from selected premium vineyards in McLaren Vale.
Traditional methods of open fermentation, extended skin contact and basket pressing took place before transferring straight to a selection of new and seasoned small French oak casks. The wine was allowed to soften and mature for 16 months before final assemblage and bottling, both unfined and unfiltered.
Brick red in colour with youthful, crimson hues.
Dark chocolate, espresso coffee, fresh licorice and some smoky wood char swirl on the nose, instantly drawing interest to the palate.
Densely constructed, with layers of texture and a creamy complexity, the palate balances the dark fruits, savoury notes, cocoa bitters and classically balanced oak nuances in a long and persistent flavour experience.
$250.00The release of the 2014 Prophecy Barossa Valley Shiraz, available only to Kilikanoon Wine Club members, has been vinified and blended from selected premium vineyards in the renowned Barossa Valley.
The employment of traditional winemaking methods, including open fermentation, basket pressing and bottling the wine unfiltered, has enhanced the structure and intensity of the wine. Twenty months maturation in French oak casks has further strengthened its cellaring potential and appeal.
Deep red in colour with youthful, crimson hues.
Strongly focused aromas of black cherries, dark chocolate and toasty French oak integrate easily.
Mid weight, yet plush and rewarding, the palate brings the noble flavours of dark cherries, licorice and fine French oak in a complex and persistent finish.
Mr Killerman, as a young Mort Mitchell called him, lived alone in a humble tin shed in the hills behind the Kilikanoon Cellar Door. Entirely self-sufficient, he grew his own fruit and vegetables and roamed the valley for his meals with rabbits being his favourite gourmet treat.
Mort grew to know and respect this man of the bush, learning the secrets of the land and how to become one with the environment. The Killerman's Run range of approachable wines showcases the distinguished and varied terroir of the Clare Valley and the Kilikanoon philosophy of uncompromised quality and consistency.
By arresting the ferment just before complete dryness provides the palate with just a hint of additional texture and roundness nicely balanced by naturally retained, crisp acidity.
Made in a classic Clare Valley regional style from a number of carefully selected, estate vineyards.
Pale straw in colour with youthful green tints and a brilliant clarity.
Lifted and intense, featuring fresh limes, floral notes, lemon curd and granny smith apples in abundance.
A classic Clare Valley Riesling in every sense, beautifully poised and measured, the combination of fresh limes and lemon essence carrys forward from the nose superbly supported by crisp natural acidity and a green apple finish.
Available for purchase as CASE ONLY (12 bottles).
This release of the Prophecy Clare Valley Shiraz, available only to Kilikanoon Wine Club members, has been composed from selected premium vineyards in the Clare Valley.
As with all vintages, each parcel was kept separate until final blending, vinification occurring in open topped fermenters, then traditional basket pressing before transferring to a selection of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads for sixteen months. Final assemblage occurred in October prior to bottling both unfined and unfiltered.
Bright red in colour with youthful, crimson hues.
Intense and lively on the nose, the elevated flavours of dark cherries, classic red fruits, kitchen spices and subtle charry oak complete the aroma.
Superbly layered yet modern in style, the palate marries red fruits, hints of cocoa and cherry plums with supportive French oak, fine tannins and defining natural acid balance in a long and expressive finish.
