Clare Valley, Australia

Kilikanoon

Killerman’s Run Shiraz 2014

“Mint and blackberry nose underneath a sweet peppery veneer. This is classic Clare Valley, full of blueberry and fruit purity, but the alcohol sticks out a bit at the end.” 91 points

Mort’s Block Riesling 2016

“Honeyed overtones add an aromatic lift to the crisp lime, lemon and grapefruit flavors, with vivid acidity. Drink now.” 88 points
MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator

“The nose here shows some petrol, as well as dried apricots and dried peaches with a touch of some dried mangoes. Full body with some intense acidity, but there is some nice fleshy fruit to close.” 91 points

Pearce Road Semillon 2015

“Lemon curd, cloves, beeswax and some dried honeysuckle are what characterizes this Semillon. The palate may not be the most subtle, but it certainly shows some real spicy intensity with lots of vanilla and nutmeg undertones. The latter is bolstered by some good acid and fruit tension.” 92 points

Blocks Road Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

“Meaty, almost bloody aromas start off on the nose and these evolve into dense mocha and blackcurrant flavours with a flutter of garrigue herbs in the background. Plush and dense, this wine has an earthy edge and a tapering mint chocolate finish”

Tregea Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

4/5 Stars – Harper’s Wine Star Awards Australian 2018

Andrew Catchpole, 
1st January 2018

“Intense nose of ripe berry and currants. Despite the plush, sweet fruit weight, there is great balance between acidity, minerality and oak. Lots of work has gone into this wine and it shows in the glass. Complex and beautifully made, with time to develop.”

“Deep garnet-purple in color and profoundly scented of creme de cassis and eucalyptus with underlying dark chocolate, clove and pencil lead hints…Packed with juicy blackcurrant flavor…Lively acidity and a long finish.” 91 points
