Winemaker Kevin Mitchell has set a new benchmark with the Covenant Shiraz. This wine has been created to perfectly express the Clare Valley’s terroir and varietal individuality. Beautifully lifted notes of licorice, cedary oak and ripe, spicy plums flood the senses followed by dark chocolate and spice on the palate with quality oak and natural fine grained tannins.
The Kilikanoon Covenant is based on Shiraz from six vineyards throughout the Leasingham Valley, with each being fermented separately, basket pressed and aged for 22 months in a combination of new and older French and American small oak casks.
“Kilikanoon produces some of Australia’s finest wines thanks to the talents of winemaker Kevin Mitchell, who continues to add impressive cuvees to the portfolio. ““He demonstrates a brilliant touch with Riesling as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The cuvees produced under the ‘Killerman’s Run’ label all represent terrific bargains”“Kilikanoon produces some of the world’s finest value-priced, full-flavored, dry reds.”Robert Parker
