Description

TASTING NOTES

Colour: Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues.

Aroma: Elevated and brimming full of dark fruits, kitchen spices, savoury meats, dusty oak and just a hint of tarriness.

Palate: Moulded in the style of the great Rhône blends of southern France, the palate has been carefully blended to create a wine of tremendous balance, poise and symmetry, the Grenache and Shiraz in perfect sync on the front and centre of the palate, both complementing the savoury nuances and structure delivered by the Mataro on the finish.

PLACE

Clare Valley.
The Killerman’s Run Collection is masterfully composed from Kilikanoon’s diverse vineyard sites and sub-regions, delivering an elegant and approachable style.

STORY

Mr Killerman, as a young Mort Mitchell called him, lived alone in a humble tin shed in the hills behind the Kilikanoon Cellar Door. Entirely self-sufficient, he grew his own fruit and vegetables and roamed the valley for his meals with rabbits being his favourite gourmet treat.

Mort grew to know and respect this man of the bush, learning the secrets of the land and how to become one with the environment. The Killerman’s Run range of approachable wines showcases the distinguished and varied terroir of the Clare Valley and the Kilikanoon philosophy of uncompromised quality and consistency.

WINEMAKING

Made in a true Rhône Valley style, all of the components were vinified and matured individually in a range of seasoned French oak hogsheads for 16 months before final assemblage and bottling unfined and unfiltered to further complement the wines appeal.
