One of our most celebrated and awarded wines, the Oracle Shiraz pays homage to the diversity of the Clare Valley. The Oracle is also one of the original four wines made in 1997 and is our flagship Shiraz named after the mythological Oracle, where one goes to obtain wisdom and understanding. The Oracle captures the very essence of the Clare Valley's famous Terroir, its unique provenance, power, and elegance.
Sourced from high elevation Estate vineyards at Mt. Surmon and Trillian's Hill- the blend also comprised of the finest parcels from the famed Mort’s Vineyard in the heart of the Kilikanoon Estate.
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 fourteen months in a careful selection of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads.
Dark ruby in colour with youthful crimson highlights.
Subtle and alluring savoury, dark berry aromas are carried on soft spiced oak notes.
In contrast to the aroma, the palate is bright and bold. Rich dark berries and bright red fruits up front that give way to charcuterie with hints of dark chocolate. Fine, powdery tannins give length and drive to the fruit - all of which elongated by the natural and seemlessly balanced acid that lingers in a velvety finish.
