2009 Kilikanoon Greens Vineyard Shiraz

92pts, Wine Spectator, USA
94 points, James Halliday 2013 Wine Companion 

 

The 2009 vintage was a return to some of the best growing and ripening seasons of the early 2000’s. The Green’s vineyard ripened slowly and evenly, with the fruit being harvested by hand in the middle of March. A vintage typified by brilliant colours, fresh vibrant fruit flavours and excellent maturation potentials. 

 

Maturation in 100% new French oak for twenty four months and bottling the wine unfined and unfiltered has ensured the preservation of the vineyard’s unique characters. 

 

Appearance: Deep brick in colour with youthful crimson hues.

Nose: Lifted flavours of cherry plums, sandalwood spice and quality French oak

overwhelm the senses.

 

Palate: Classically crafted Barossa styled palate; fully ripened plums, hints of old gold chocolate, sassy French oak, all entwined with balance and natural tannins and acidity. A wine, rewarding texturally, yet delivering incredible finesse and aging potential.

2012 Kilikanoon Greens Vineyard Shiraz

Strong vintages suit single vineyard wines and the 2012 season was one of the very best we have seen in a decade or more. Warm days and cooler nights in the Barossa Valley providing the perfect conditions from which to craft our new Green's Vineyard Shiraz, as they allowed the old vine fruit to ripen more slowly and evenly, intensifying the natural flavours and tannins, thus promoting both palate density and length.

 

Traditional winemaking techniques of hands on cap management, basket pressing and bottling the final blend unfined and unfiltered has further enhanced the vineyards unique sub regional character and charm. Twenty months maturation in new and one year old French oak hogsheads further adding complexity.

 

Appearance: Deep brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues.


Nose: A lifted combination of dark fruits, hints of cocoa and choclate and charry oak superbly define the nose.

 

Palate: Generously proportioned yet perfectly balanced, the flavours of ripe plums, dark chocolate and charcuterie seamlessly meld with the contribution of fine oak notes in a complex and persistent finish.
