Winemaker Notes

Brilliant in clarity, pale straw in color with youthful green tints. Full blown aromas of limes and citrus flood the nose. The palate is crisp and lively with mouthfilling flavors of fresh lime juice, lemon curd and natural, racy acidity are perfectly balanced with a hint of retained natural grapesugar. This wine's core of natural acidity will provide terrific balance, great palate length and satisfaction for the next 12-15 years with proper cellaring.

It’s hard to believe this is Kilikanoon’s basic riesling. The cool 2013 season produced a wine that courses with energy, classic Clare in its clean line of minerally lime flavor; tasting director Stephanie Johnson described it as “electric.” Focused and firm when first opened, this mellows into a deliciously creamy, lime-rich riesling over the course of several days. A sure bet for the cellar, this will be close to mature at six to eight years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
With expressive, forward notes of white peaches, lime cordial and pink grapefruit accented by a touch of wet slate, the light-bodied and dry 2013 Killerman’s Run Riesling has a very crisp line of lively acidity cutting through the fruit before it finishes long and clean. Drink it now to 2018+.Rating: 90+

Kilikanoon  Golden Hillside Winery Image

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 purchasing the property in the 1990s, Kevin Mitchell inherited 30 year old Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache and Riesling vineyards, many of which were planted by his father, Mort, in the 1960s. Fifteen 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.

The Clare Valley is actually a series of narrow north to south valleys, each with a different soil type and slightly different weather patterns along their stretch. In the southern heartland between Watervale and Auburn, there is mainly a crumbled, red clay loam soil called terra rossa and cool breezes come in from Gulf St. Vincent. A few miles north, in Polish Hill, is soft, red loam over clay; westerlies blowing in from the Spencer Gulf influece this area's climate.

The differences in soil, elevation, degree of slope and weather enable the region to produce some of Australia’s finest, aromatic, spicy and lime-pithy Rieslings, as well as excellent Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec with ripe plummy fruit, good acid and big structure.

Clare Valley is an isolated farming country with a continental climate known for its warm and sunny days, followed by cool nights—perfect for wine grapes’ development of sugar and phenolic ripeness in conjunction with notable acidity levels.
