A crisp and lively Rosé, largely styled on the famous wines of southern France. A cool and dry 2013 vintage was one well suited to the production of Rosé; the low disease pressure, dry conditions and slow ripening further enhancing the wines food matching appeal.

The Second Fiddle Rosé was named in part after one of Kevin Mitchell’s original partners in Kilikanoon, John Harding. John is an accomplished violinist and conductor and owned one of the old Grenache vineyards from where the wine sources some of its fruit. The other refers to the deep respect we at Kilikanoon have for the Grenache variety, its versatility in not only making complex and powerful table wines but also lending itself to the production of fine Rosé styles.

A single vineyard wine, made by the saignée method from seventy five year old Grenache vineyards from our Khileyre vineyard

Winery Tasting Notes


Pale pink in colour from the very limited pre fermentation skin contact.


Hints of dark cherries, kitchen herbs and savoury notes enliven the nose.


Lightly textured and crisply flavoured, the palate refreshingly carries over the bright cherry and herbal notes of the nose, nicely balanced and supported by the Grenache’s high natural acidity.

Bottled June 2013.


The wine is best consumed young and fresh but can surprise after 2 to 3 years bottle age.

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.
