Natalie MacLean 90/100 (2015 vintage)
Natalie MacLean "Big, bold and black fruit with delicious fleshy ripeness wrapped in toasty oak. Polished tannins. Black pepper with a hint of eucalyptus on the finish."
One mark of a truly great producer is the ability to evoke the signature quality of their premium bottlings across their entry level range.
The Lackey is consistently one of Australia's great-value buys, and this well-priced Shiraz from Kilikanoon offers a tantalizing hint of what can be expected from Kilikanoon more expensive offerings.
Kilikanoon is recognised as one of Australia's leading wineries. From humble beginnings in 1997 with just 25,000 bottles produced from the first vintage, Kilikanoon has grown significantly, now exporting to over 25 countries.
The 2002 Clare Valley Wine Show chaired by prominent Australian wine writer and judge, Huon Hooke, propelled Kilikanoon into the spotlight, winning 6 of the 7 trophies awarded.
