Kilikanoon / 2010 Oracle Shiraz

Country/Region: Australia/ClareValley.

Alc: 14.5%

Grapes: 100% Shiraz.

Unit: 1 x 75cl Bottle.

In every year since Kilikanoon released its first wines, the very best of the Clare Valley’s terroir has been captured in the Oracle Shiraz. Made traditionally from older vine fruit grown along the Golden Hillside in Leasingham, it continues to display the opulence, unique regional expression and varietal power the area is so famous for.

The 2010 vintage was another exceptional one in the Valley, characterised by warm days and cooler evenings, delivering individual Shiraz parcels of elevated flavour, colour intensity and maturation potential.

Low yielding Shiraz, carefully hand selected from a number of aged parcels from our Golden Hillside vineyards, were fully ripened, traditionally vinified, basket pressed and aged for 24 months in new and one year old French hogsheads.

Appearance: Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues.

Nose: A nose dominated by dark chocolate notes, incense and cherries; complicated and brooding, yet sublimely focussed.

Palate: Well defined and textural palate, the flavours of dark chocolate, cherries and exotic spices carry over beautifully from the nose, all ensconced in fine French oak in a lingering and satisfying finish.

Delivery: All our wines are stored in our importers bonded warehouse’s, which have the optimum environment for fine wine storage, by carefully regulating temperature, humidity and other microclimatic factors.

As such, please allow between 7 and 10 days for your delivery to arrive.
