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.

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

Fermented at cool temperatures for 3 weeks with an aromatic yeast strain. The ferment was arrested prior to complete dryness to give a hint of additional texture and roundness nicely balanced by naturally retained, crisp acidity.

Made in a classic Clare Valley regional style primarily from carefully selected vineyards in the Watervale sub region.

  • 2019 Edition
  • Pale, bright straw-green; the flowery come-hither bouquet doesn’t deceive, the palate pure joy. Lime, lemon and Granny Smith apples cascade through the long palate, the keynote squeaky acidity held in place by an invisible film. It’s a mouthfeel quality most often encountered with young Riesling, and sustains the very long finish.
