Kilikanoon was founded in 1997 when winemaker and proprietor Kevin Mitchell purchased the property of the same name in the hamlet of Penwortham in South Australia's picturesque Clare Valley. Hailing from a long line of wine grape growers, Kevin now had the opportunity to turn the vision of creating his own wine brand into a reality.
The fruit for Baudinet Riesling comes from the Trillian’s Hill vineyard. At over 500 metres above sea level, this vineyard has a commanding view over many parts of the Clare Valley
A cool and dry spring set the scene for an excellent 2016 vintage with growing concerns about the dry conditions allayed in early January with season saving rains that put things back on track for an excellent harvest
Gentle pressing and a long cool fermentation period have created a very delicate and linear styled Riesling
Tasting note: Brilliant in clarity, pale straw in colour with youthful green tints. Hints of orange blossom, green apples and lemon meringue feature prominently on the nose. A palate brimming full of green apples, lemon zest and fine boned linear acidity, beautifully poised and sculptured that guarantees its long potential in the cellar.
