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.

The 2014 vintage was a rollercoaster from start to fi nish. A period of extreme heat struck in early January placing many vineyards under stress before a quenching rain event occurred bringing over 100mm to most parts of the Clare Valley. Weather patterns shifted to a much more autumnal theme, with cool nights and and warm days slowing the ripening process down and allowing the harvest to commence in a very calm and orderly way, before heavy rain again occurred in early March. Thankfully, the Cello Riesling parcels were picked by this time and so the overall result being Rieslings of great structure and balance with high natural acidities and fruit freshness.
Pale straw with youthful green tints and brilliant clarity.
Lifted notes of citric rind, lemon curd and fl oral perfumes saturate the senses.
A lively and fl avoursome palate, offering the mouthfi lling characters of lemons, orange blossom, hints of stonefruit and zesty natural acidity in a long and cleansing finish.

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.
