KILIKANOON Miracle Hill Shiraz, McLaren Vale 2013

With the 2010 vintage, Kilikanoon’s M Reserve became Miracle Hill Shiraz. The wine is sourced from small parts of a single vineyard planted in the early 1970s in the foothills east of the McLaren Vale township. It is made in strictly limited quantities and released only in years of exceptional quality. Dynamic structure, intensity of flavour and cellaring potential are all hallmarks of Miracle Hill Shiraz. Traditional winemaking techniques are employed, including fermentation in a single, open-topped vessel, basket pressing, maturation in a combination of new and one-year-old French oak hogsheads and bottling both unfined and unfiltered further enhances the wines strong character and pedigree. Miracle Hill Shiraz remains a genuine ‘reserve quality’ single-site Shiraz.

Region McLaren Vale

The McLaren Vale wine region is located between the Mount Lofty Ranges and the Gulf of St Vincent just South of Adelaide in South Australia. Historically it was John Reynell who established Chateau Reynella in 1838, and Thomas Hardy who purchased the historic Tintara in 1876, that kick started the development of the McLaren Vale wine industry. The climate is generally considered warm, although different aspects, altitude and the effect of the cooling ocean breezes moderate the climate within the different sub-regions of the Vale. A large number of soil types are present, although red-brown loams dominate. The biggest viticultural challenge is the potential for drought and the overall lack of water. Full bodied, robust and plush reds typify the McLaren Vale style. Plantings are dominated by Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, with smaller plantings of whites including Semillon, and Chardonnay. More recent plantings of Mediterranean varieties particularly suited to the climate, including Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Savagnin and Fiano have also been very successful.

Winery KILIKANOON

Kilikanoon Winery, based at Penwortham, was established in 1997 by Kevin Mitchell, an Adelaide University graduate and a Clare Valley winemaker down to his bootstraps. Initially the wines were based on Kilikanoon’s Golden Hillside suite of contiguous vineyards planted by Kevin’s father Mort during the 1960s and 1970s. Low input viticulture and traditional winemaking techniques are extensively employed evoking the idea of hand-made wines. Fastidious attention to detail and a burning ambition to make wines with clear regional definition and individual personality has quickly established Kilikanoon as one of Clare’s top producers.
