Textbook Shiraz from the underrated Clare Valley.
Kilikanoon Meymans Shiraz 2017 - The Meymans block contributes fruit to the better-known Covenant Shiraz, but they clearly left some of the best behind. This is a ripper Shiraz, choc-full of fruits and spices, which almost leap out of the glass with excitement, so much drive here, and rich pickings, all well-contained and well-structured. The wine really opened up over a couple of days, and became very hard to put down. Textbook Shiraz from the underrated Clare Valley. 96+ points.
This red demonstrates the quality of Clare Shiraz.
Kilikanoon Meymans Shiraz 2015 – Meymans is a single vineyard among the Kilikanoon holdings. With many wines in this price range, it’s hard to see where the extra dollars went but not here: the fruit is dark and sumptuous, opulent almost, rich and round and profound. The oak adds a very fine polish, and the fine tannin backbone keeps it all nice and tidy. This red demonstrates the quality of Clare Shiraz. 95+ points. BUY.
