Who knew Celine Dion has some great taste?? Firstly getting Kevin at Kilikanoon to make her a little parcel of wine and then choosing the Barossa Valley. This is a proper Barossa Shiraz with layers of plush blackberry and mulberry fruits in a dense package. And a steal too!
It's an honour and a privilege to be associated with Kilikanoon Wines. Their passion for wine-making matches my passion for music (and on top of this, symphony cellist Nathan Waks, co-owner of Kilikanoon, is just as passionate about music!!) More importantly, 100% of my royalties from the sale of this wine go directly to The Celine Dion Foundation, non-profit organisation supporting a variety of worthy causes with emphasis on helping children in need. Thank you for your support, and I really hope you enjoy the wine.
Blended from small parcels of hand pressed Shiraz from Greenock and Vine Vale and aged for months in new and older small French oak casks, before bottling unfined and unfiltered.
Appearance: Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues.
Nose: Notes of wild aniseed, cocoa and fresh plums dominate the aroma, superbly enhanced by the aromas of fine French oak char.
Palate:A beautifully poised and crafted palate, the flavours of dark chocolate, rich licorice and spicy French oak effortlessly combine and finesse with the fine grained tannins and naturally preserved acidity in a long persistent finish.
Food: Rich red meats: Osso bucco and Chorizo sausage. Perfect with anything Italian or for something different try with ploughman’s platters
Cellaring: At least 12 - 15 years with careful cellaring
