Kilikanoon Medley 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Bright red in color with youthful crimson and a seductive blend of dark cherries, cocoa, subtle oak, and earthy notes on the nose. A rich wine, with integrated tannins and layers of red and black berries, sweet spices ( cloves, nutmeg) and a pronounced dark chocolate nose in the persistent finish.

Founded in 1997 by Kevin Mitchell, Kilikanoon is a boutique Clare Valley winery with an international reputation for producing regionally expressive, terroir-driven wines. The Kilikanoon property, featuring a circa 1860s stone cottage housing Kilikanoon tasting room, was originally settled by early English migrants who named it after an historic old mansion in Cornwall. On purchase of the historic property in 1997, mature vineyards of shiraz, cabernet, grenache and riesling that had been planted by Kevin’s father, Mort in the 1960’s, became a part of Kilikanoon, and now form the heart of the estate vineyards. 10 years on, with the addition of partners Nathan Waks, a principal cellist with the Sydney Symphony, and Bruce Baudinet, Managing Director of Oracle Estates, Kilikanoon is rated by US and Australian critics as one of the Clare Valley’s outstanding wineries, producing bracingly intense and long-lived rieslings, along with powerful, yet balanced shiraz, grenache and cabernet sauvignon.

Vintage: 2003 05/19/2011

A tank sample of the 2003 GSM The Medley, a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Shiraz, and 10% Mourvedre aged in old wood, exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as flamboyant aromas of blueberries, blackberries, kirsch, new saddle leather, and earth. With sweet tannin, decent acidity, admirable concentration, and a blockbuster finish, it should drink well for 5-7 years. Like the Grenache, it represents a fine value.
