Kilikanoon Meymans Shiraz Cabernet 2017

$45.00
$35.00
This is a mighty big Shiraz Cab blend – Kilikanoon seem to have a knack of producing reds that are bigger than the average Clare bear. The fruit here is stunning, with black and blue berries, chocolate and nuts all wrapped up in a gloriously silken texture. Big, polished, silky and great drinking now, this should also cellar for up to 10 years.

Allow us to prattle on a little more about this...

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.

Wonderful winter red with many good years in front of it.

Kilikanoon Meymans Shiraz Cabernet 2015 – Very similar to the Shiraz for obvious reasons. It’s another rich red of generous build and smooth demeanour, the fruit is a touch darker and cooler, and there’s a tad more complexity in the blend. Wonderful winter red with many good years in front of it. 96+ points. BUY

A quintessential Aussie wine

Is there a more of a quintessential Aussie wine than the Cabernet Shiraz?
This wine is about as Australian as a Holden Ute. Which is exactly what your mouth needs to carry the bags of flavour this wine wants to deliver to your mouth, all at once; only a ute can carry such a wide voluminous load.
Feeling like you are driving through the fruits of the forest perched upon a comfortable velvet tannins seat cover; this wine is perfect for the everyday drive. However, makes it feel like a trip somewhere special. There is plenty of interest to drink right now but just like the Ute, you can trust it will still carry it for many years to come.
