A perennial favorite within the Kilikanoon family portfolio, the Prodigal seeks to deliver the single fruit purity of an old vine Grenache.

Sourced in equal parts from two 60 year old hand pruned and hand picked vineyards, the fully ripened fruit was crushed, fermented traditionally in small open topped fermenters, then basket pressed and allowed to mature for 22 months in older French and American oak hogsheads. Seductively perfumed and redolent of cherries, dark chocolate and spicy older oak flavours, the palate offers sweetness and softness yet exquisitely mouthfilling and persistent on the finish. Another great wine to complement a range of fine foods and cheeses.

Also, in October 2014, Sarah Ahmed (The Wine Detective) has written up some fantastic tasting notes on the Kilikanoon Prodigal Grenache.

"I was particularly impressed with Kilikanoon’s complex, reassuringly dry Grenache which I had the opportunity to sit with over dinner, hence the longer notes. From two 60 year old Watervale Grenache vineyards Prodigal retains a youthful bright hue and perfumed nose of turkish delight.  Creamy, caressing even of mouthfeel, layers of sweet spice (vanilla, cinnamon and sandalwood) and dried lavender infused pomegranate, plum, red berry and cherry fruit flavours are sustained over a long palate by a persistent thread of mineral acidity and subtle pull of sandpaper fine tannins.  Very good indeed.  With time in glass it’s the minerality, not the fruit, which becomes more pronounced."
