Kilikanoon Attunga 1865 Shiraz 2016


This is a Museum release of this outstanding wine made from vines planted near Auburn on the way to Clare in 1865. It’s just starting to give a glimpse of the good things ahead. Faint hints of leather and library book development on the nose, but it’s offset by the rich weight of primary fruit. It’s intense and deeply concentrated, but it has polish and poise with dark chocolate and ripe plummy fruit flavours filling the palate. The tannin and oak combination nails it. And there’s still more time ahead of it.

Variety: Red Wine, Shiraz
