Kilikanoon Baudinet Grenache Shiraz Mataro 2019

Special Price $50.00 Regular Price $55.00
Jeni Port nailed it when she said 'The palate wields fine tannins with impressive style, elevating the peppery aromatics, the punchy maraschino cherry notes, not to mention the discreet savouriness. The choc-vanillin oak is particularly nicely placed, intuitive almost, simply going harmoniously with the wine. We used to treat GSM as simply a nice everyday kind of wine. No more. 96 points.' Has also picked up 3 trophies and a heap of other accolades. A stunning wine.

It’s hard to believe how far and fast Kilikanoon has risen since being established in 1997 with 14 acres of vines. In 2002 Kilikanoon won 6 of the 7 available trophies at the Clare Valley wine show. In 2013 James Halliday named Kilikanoon as his winery of the year. Today Kilikanoon has over 700 acres of vines, and sources additional fruit from some of the best growers in the Barossa Valley, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale.

130km north of Adelaide (and west of the Barossa), the Clare Valley sits within a high-altitude pocket granting the vineyards cool to cold nights with long, warm to hot summer days. This cooler climate grants thin-skinned (and indeed temperamental) grapes like rieslings a perfect climate in which to mature slowly without risk of mould during the harvest season. The resulting wines are perfumed, complex, softly flavoured yet powerful. There are several sub-regions in the 35km stretch of valley, pocketed with varying soils, altitudes and climates.
