Tasting notes

The Lackey emphasizes the ripe, classic, South Australian Shiraz grape aged in old oak and bottled with no fining or filtration. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and elegant, it reveals plenty of berry fruit, chocolate, pepper, and new saddle leather characteristics.



Winery Description

The Lackey, produced by Kilikanoon, a boutique Clare Valley winery with an international reputation for producing regionally expressive, terroir-driven wines.  

The name ‘Lackey’ is an affectionate Australian term referring to a hardworking laborer of agreeable character who is generally assigned to menial tasks, yet none-the-less gets the job done without the merest sign of a complaint.
