Wine tasting notes

Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues. Intense, darkly brooding and seductive, the aromas of dark cherries, cedary oak, kitchen spices and hints of tar and leather combine in an alluring and potent combination.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2016) - 93 pts

The 2016 Covenant Shiraz offers notes of woodsmoke, plum, black cherry and boysenberry. It's a big, full-bodied wine, yet it remains silky and surprisingly elegant, with a fine, lingering finish. Drink it over the next decade or so.


Wine Enthusiast (2016) - 88 pts

This inky-hued Shiraz is a dense, ripe wine made for the cellar. The black-cherry and plum fruit feel a touch stewed, and are back by oak-derived notes like leather, oatmeal, cola and cedar. Tannins are big and chewy and acidity, just like in the Killerman's Run, feels a little unharmonious in conjunction. Ripe fruit provides some plushness and silky texture but at the moment the youthful tannins and acidity are wrestling it into submission. Give this time to knit together. Drink 2021–2029.

James Halliday (2016) - 95 pts

state-grown, cultured yeast, each parcel kept separate, 8-10 days on skins in open fermenters, matured for 20 months in French hogsheads (30% new). Full-bodied, full-blooded. One of Killikanoon's cornerstones, dark cherry, plum, licorice and chocolate all swirl in the mouth. It's full-bodied for sure, but doesn't beat you around the head. James Halliday
