The word Revelation has many meanings. At Kilikanoon we identify with the definition “...an act of revealing a fact or to make known a truth to others.” Our Revelation Shiraz is just that: the reveal of our most precious and coveted wine from any given vintage and it only happens when the conditions are faultless.
After years of crafting and developing the perfect combination of factors, the first Revelation wine was bottled in 2010. Today, the evolution of the style and meticulous barrel selection has ensured its great legacy.
It all starts in the vineyard. The perfect combination of soil, vine age, altitude, and vineyard orientation with just the right balance of sunlight and water to create the ideal conditions for nature to nurture the ultimate grapes.
Our artisan winemaker then shapes and encourages the grapes into wine with depth and complexity, balance, and longevity. It is only after many months, if not years of evolution, that the very best wine, resting in our most harmonious oak, is selected to be in our Revelation.
No more than 100 dozen bottles per year. Truly the best of the best in Kilikanoon’s vinous arsenal.

Nose: An intense explosion of aromas! Dark plums and chocolate, blackberry, red currants, cedar and spice all interplay to create a symphony of sensations.
Palate: The palate is dense and immersive, redolent of ripe plums, cherries and chocolate. The concentration is quite astounding, braced by an electric acidity and coated in super-fine powdery tannins. Further waves of bramble, coffee, mocha and dark fruits build to the crescendo, weaving their way to a prolonged and satisfying finish.
