Winemaker's Notes

"Lackey" is an affectionate Australian term referring to a hardworking laborer of agreeable character who is generally assigned to menial tasks, yet none-the-less gets the job done without the merest sign of a complaint. In a similar fashion, Australian Shiraz has long been considered the workhorse of the Australian wine industry – undeniably full of personality, and the ideal candidate to get the job done, regardless of the situation! This hard working "lackey" of a wine punches well above its weight in personality and complexity.

Kilikanoon has selected premium parcels of Shiraz fruit from South Australian regions to craft an unassuming wine of upfront character and appeal. Deep garnet in color with crimson hues, the intensely perfumed nose leads with spicy plums and blueberry confit, backed by pepper spices and charry oak. Textured and generous, the palate follows suit with fresh plums and cherries, a generous mid-palate of ripe berry fruits and a finish of ripe, dark chocolatey tannins and balanced acidity.

Critical Acclaim

"The Shiraz lineup begins with the bargain-priced 2006 Shiraz “The Lackey” which was aged for 15 months in seasoned American oak and bottled without fining or filtration. It offers a stylish bouquet for its humble price featuring aromas of cedar, bacon, plum, and blueberry. This leads to a medium-bodied wine with good grip, intensity, and length. It is a Best Buy. Kilikanoon’s winemaker is the talented Kevin Mitchell. The house specialty is Shiraz but Mitchell does equally well with Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Grenache. "
