Kilikanoon Wines

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 had the opportunity to turn the vision of creating his own wine brand into a reality.

Kevin's father Mort Mitchell has been a defining influence, planting and tending to Kilikanoon's Golden Hillside suite of vineyards including the famed Mort's Block, for over 40 years.

Kevin's fascination with terroir is a result of years spent playing and eventually working in these vineyards alongside his father.

The first Kilikanoon branded wines from the 1997 vintage were four single vineyard wines, each from Kevin and Mort's vineyards. These were the 'Oracle' Shiraz, 'Prodigal' Grenache, 'Blocks Road' Cabernet and 'Mort's Block' Watervale Riesling.

One of the premium wine grape growing regions of the world, the Clare Valley has three parallel valleys, each with a unique expression of distinctive terroir, varying in altitude, rainfall and soil sub structure.

Our terroir is of great importance; the synergy of place, soil, climate and people - the elements which ensure each vineyard's unique qualities. Kilikanoon's vineyards have been carefully selected to enable a range of wines which express the individuality of their respective regions.


The Kilikanoon “personality”

The powerful elegance of Kilikanoon Wines is the ultimate expression of Clare Valley terroir. A concerto of diverse and unique microclimates masterfully composed, to deliver impeccable quality and style for each wine.

The Vineyards they farm

Mort’s Block - Mort's Block vineyard was planted over 40 years ago by Mort Mitchell, father of Kevin Mitchell, Kilikanoon's founder and Chief Winemaker.

This vineyard is at the heart of a group of Watervale Estates vineyards which often provides the core fruit for Kilikanoon's most prestigious labels - The Oracle and Covenant Shiraz, Blocks Road Cabernet Sauvignon and Mort's Block Riesling.

Traditional methods are employed to tender this vineyard; careful rod and spur pruning and hand picking pay homage to its namesake Mort Mitchell.


Meyman’s Block - this vineyard is comprised of dry grown Shiraz, planted in 2000 with the first crop was harvested in 2003.

Planted in an east-west aspect the soils are red brown earth over limestone with some ironstone at the western end of the block.

The fruit from this vineyard is of very high standard and provides the foundation for our Kilikanoon Covenant Shiraz.

Morrison’s Block - Purchased by Kilikanoon in 2008, this vineyard has become one of the premium Shiraz and Riesling producing blocks in the Kiilikanoon portfolio. Planted in red brown earth over limestone on a westerly aspect, the oldest vines here date back to the early 1970's.

The most premium of grapes from this block become our Oracle Shiraz, while the remainder are typically destined for our award- winning Covenant Shiraz. Our east west Riesling producing block finds its way into our Mort's Block Riesling, so named after winemaker Kevin's father.
