Kilikanoon Green's Vineyard Barossa Valley Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Now the Greens hold the balance of power in the Senate, it’s appropriate that Kilikanoon name this powerful Shiraz the Greens Reserve. While this wine is powerful in its own right, it probably won’t please Bob Brown’s palate, or any other tree hugger for that matter. That’s because it’s matured entirely in new oak barrels, which means a lot of trees were sacrificed in the making of it. But the wood is good, as it adds complex smoky oak characters to the spicy plum flavours. It’s built to last in the cellar, so you can hide away from your ‘green’ friends and pull it out when you feel like a hearty steak.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Deep brick in colour with youthful crimson hues.

Nose: Perfumed and layered notes of licorice, dark cherries and classy, French oak char flood the senses, beautifully bound together.

Palate: Richly flavoured and opulently textural, the dark cherries and licorice notes are enhanced by the well handled, fine grained oak to create wonderful complexity. Its vineyard origins perfectly reflected in its lingering palate persistence.
