James' Review

Kilikanoon has travelled in the fast lane since winemaker Kevin Mitchell established it in 1997 on the foundation of 6ha of vines he owns with father Mort. With the aid of investors, its 80 000-dozen production comes from over 300ha of estate-owned vineyards, and access to the best grapes from a total of 2266ha across SA. Between 2013 and early '14 all links between Kilikanoon and Seppeltsfield were ended; the sale of Kilikanoon's share in Seppeltsfield, together with the sale of Kilikanoon's Crowhurst Vineyard in the Barossa Valley, led to the purchase by Kilikanoon of the winery which it had previously leased, and purchase of the Mount Surmon Vineyard. Exports to most major markets.

About this winery

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 turned his vision of creating a powerful and elegant brand into a reality. The Kilikanoon philosophy and style has seen it awarded Australian Winery of the year four times over seven years from three different sources, including Germany’s famed Mundus Vini in both 2010 and 2017, and of-course James Halliday who rated Kilikanoon Australia’s best Winery in 2013.
