One of the most enduring and important wines in our Clare Valley portfolio, the Covenant always represents the very best of the regions elevated distinctiveness and regional signature. The 2012 vintage being of no exception, the warm and dry harvest conditions producing perfectly ripened fruit of optimal flavour and tannin development.

Along with the finest Rieslings, the Clare Valley has produced some of the most sought after Shiraz in the world. Handpicked Shiraz fruit was selected from six older vineyards, each fermented separately and allowed to age in small French oak casks for 18 months before final blending and bottling.

Expert Reviews

A complex bouquet and medium to full-bodied palate reflects the vintage first and foremost, but also maturation in French and American oak; licorice and black chocolate are also components, ripe tannins providing the framework. Rating 93 - Drink by 2027, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes


Deep red in colour with bright crimson hues.


Black olives, dark cherries and a raft of kitchen spices boldly impress the nose.


Crafted in a style that will reward further cellaring yet balanced enough to enjoy upon release, the palate cleverly combines the dark fruit notes and spices from the nose with toasty French oak and natural regional acidity.

Cellaring Potential

At least 12 -15 years with careful cellaring

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Kilikanoon Wines is a boutique winery with an international reputation, located in the heart of South Australia’s stunning Clare Valley. Since 1997 and his first Clare Valley vintage, founder and winemaker Kevin Mitchell has produced wines of individuality with strong regional and varietal definition. Clare Valley, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and now Hermitage terroir is all important, especially for their Shiraz, Riesling, Grenache and Cabernet single varietals.

Like many Australia 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 South Australia’s beautiful Clare Valley, where grapes have been grown and wine made since the 1850s.

The first Kilikanoon release was in 1998, with 1997 vintage Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache and two 1998 Rieslings. Since that time Kevin has continually refined his skills and has produced a wide portfolio of Kilikanoon wines from some of Australia’s finest terroir.

Kilikanoon’s philosophy is to make the best wines from the best grapes, no matter where they are, so recently we went to France! We make wine in two regions- the Loire Valley and the Rhône Valley.

In late 2007 Kilikanoon, along with partners Janet Holmes à Court and Greg and Kerrie Paramor acquired Seppeltsfield in the Barossa Valley, one of Australia’s most revered and historic wineries, established in 1851 and the home to one of the world’s finest collections of barrel-aged fortified wines, including the unique unbroken collection of Vintage dated 100 year old Para Tawny (port) dating back to 1878, when the first wines were laid down, not to be bottled for 100 years.They are delighted to celebrate our first decade. The next looks to be just as exciting.
