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.
Coming from the east and west ridges of our estate property, this vintage shows all the hallmark traits of a cool climate Clare Valley wine with well-integrated tannin and oak. A hot and dry year forced the vines to push deep into the soil yet also allowed for full ripening of the grapes. This shows in the intense flavours and aromas of big red fruits and dark brambly notes all of which is underpinned by a delightfully smooth finish. Elegant and powerful, this wine is quite simply, a winter’s delight.
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.
Elegant cherry with wild red berries and a touch of cedar
Silky smooth tannins, with delicious red fruits. Smooth and round with a firm medium body.
