2016 Oracle Shiraz

Kilikanoon Wines

$96.00

With the exception of the 2011 vintage, each year since 1997 we have released the iconic Oracle Shiraz. Crafted from old vine fruit grown along the Golden Hillside in Leasingham, it continues to display the opulence, regional character and varietal power the valley is so renown for.

  • Winemaking

    Low yielding parcels of Shiraz were selected from each vineyard based on concentration of flavours. Each parcel was then vinified separately using traditional winemaking techniques, before being aged for eighteen months in a careful selection of new and seasoned French oak casks.

    Appearance

    Dark red in colour with youthful crimson highlights.

    Nose

    Layers of black olive tapenade and forest berries with liquorice, cinnamon and clove.

    Palate

    Rich and powerful dark berries and bright red fruits up front that give way to savoury charcuterie with hints of dark chocolate and sweet spice. Fine, powdery tannins give length and drive to the fruit before a velvety finish.
