Overview

Newly renamed, our 2010 Miracle Hill McLaren Vale Shiraz is a single vineyard wine released only in vintages of exceptional quality. An excellent growing season, completed by warm and dry harvest conditions, has allowed the creation of a true Reserve wine, featuring brilliant colour, intensely fruit driven flavours and offering outstanding cellaring potential.

Sourced from a 41 year old vineyard in the foothills to the east of McLaren Vale township, this small cuvee was vinified traditionally in a small open fermenter before basket pressing and 24 months maturation in small new and one fill French oak casks.

Expert Reviews

Impenetrable colour; a dark and brooding bouquet simply loaded with black fruits, mocha, charry oak and fresh tar; the palate is dense, dark, muscular and very tannic, impressive in its concentration certainly, and certain to please for its power; elegant it is not. Rating 93 - Drink by 2022 - Ben Edwards, Wine Companion (MAR/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red in colour with youthful crimson hues.

Aroma

Richly presented notes of fresh coffee grounds, dark cherries and French oak spices combine effortlessly on the nose.

Palate

A rousing blend of dark cherries, mocha coffee, raspberries and quality French oak easily integrate and finish long and strong in a lingering palate experience. Drinking beautifully now, but will comprehensively provide additional enjoyment if further cellaring is completed.

Bottled June 2012

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.
