Lampe’s Chicken Wings with Sweet-and-Spicy Pantry Sauce

INGREDIENTS:

  • 16 chicken wings, with the two joints attached, tips removed
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup hot sauce
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon light brown sugar

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Make a slash on the inside of the chicken wing joints without cutting through the bone and in a few other places. In a large, shallow baking dish, combine the ketchup with the mustard, hot sauce, soy sauce and brown sugar. Add the chicken wings and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Light a grill. Remove the chicken wings from the marinade (pantry sauce), leaving some of it on them, and reserve the remaining marinade. Grill the wings over a medium-hot fire, turning and basting them with the reserved marinade, until nicely charred and cooked through, about 30 minutes. Stop basting during the last 5 minutes of grilling and discard any remaining marinade. Serve the wings hot or at room temperature.

MELLOW WINE STYLE

There are pronounced aromatics of dark fruits, sweet spices, and forest floor. The palate is welcoming with generous flavors of black cherry, dusted chocolate and plum. It evolves beautifully in the glass, a wonderfully textured wine that finishes on a savory note.

BACKGROUND:
Named after a legendary Clare Valley squatter, Killerman, who planted and tended vines on a paddock adjoining the Kilikanoon property. As legend has it, Killerman made his own wines in a galvanized iron lean-to.

WINEMAKING:
The Killerman’s Run Shiraz uses low yielding grapes from premium vineyards, hand-selected from exclusively Clare Valley vineyards. The grapes are then vinified by traditional winemaking methods and matured in small French barriques before careful blending and unfiltered bottling.

ABOUT KILIKANOON:
Kilikanoon is a boutique Clare Valley winery founded in 1997 by Kevin Mitchell; it is known for producing regionally expressive, terroir-driven wines. The Kilikanoon property, featuring a circa 1860s stone cottage housing Kilikanoon’s tasting room, was orginally settled by early English migrants who named it after a historic old mansion in Cornwall. When purchasing the historic property in 1997, Kevin Mitchell inherited 30 year old Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache and Riesling vineyards− many of which were planted by his father, Mort, in the 1960’s. Learn more here.
