Valley Clare produces some of the most highly sought Shiraz wines in the world. Just like the French, Kilikanoon make a second tier wine from the same vineyards as the estate flagship Oracle. The best parcels of Clare Valley fruit, from vines up to forty years of age, are selected and assembled to create the terroir based Covenant Shiraz. Intensely varietal with lifted aromas of black olives, a wine of extraordinary power and finesse, as spiced plums and splendid French oak see the fruit through to the stylish, evenly textured finish, seamless and long.
Kilikanoon's proprietor Kevin Mitchell is a seasoned veteran of the wine industry, starting out as cellar hand and assistant winemaker with Krondorf, d' Arenberg, Kingston Estate, Orlando, BRL Hardy, Kendal Jackson and Willamette Valley in the US. Covenant Shiraz is treated to a traditional handling, fermentation takes place in small open vats followed by a gentle pass through a basket press. Hand picked Shiraz grapes are selected from six vineyards throughout the Leasingham Valley, each is fermented separately, basket pressed and aged eighteen months in a selection of small French oak casks.
TASTING NOTES
Bright red colour with youthful crimson hues. Intensely focused bouquet, expressive of dark fruits, licorice, wild olives and quality French oak spice. Richly apportioned with layers of complexity, fruit weight and flavour persistence, the palate combines dark fruits, cooking spices and chocolate notes, beautifully supported, classy French oak flatters and integrates, providing seamless length and flavour persistence.

More About Kilikanoon Wines
Kevin Mitchell's tireless and passionate devotion to his chosen craft has propelled him to international cult status
Like many Australian winemakers Kevin Mitchell is highly trained in both the scientific and artistic sides of winemaking. He also comes from a long tradition of grape growing in the Clare Valley. Kevin began a prolific winemaking career in 1993 as cellar hand. He worked his way up within the industry to be assistant winemaker at a list of companies including Krondorf, d'Arenberg, Kingston Estate, Orlando and BRL Hardy, as well as wineries in the USA. Mitchell purchased the Kilikanoon property in the heart of the picturesque Clare Valley in 1997 with a vision of creating his own brand. The first Kilikanoon releases in 1998 met with immediate export success, and the international reputation for this sensational Clare winery's editions have built steadily from there. Kilikanoon»
