Colour: Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues.
Aroma: Lifted flavours of dark cherries, fresh licorice and subtle smoky oak infuse the nose.
Palate: Richly textured and delivering well beyond expectations, the palate carries forward the flavours of dark cherries and licorice from the nose and combines further with additional layers of chocolate, cedary overtones, finely balanced tannins and tarriness in a long persistent finish.
Alcohol: 14.5% v/v
Potential of at least 12 – 15 years.
The Killerman’s Run Collection is masterfully composed from Kilikanoon’s diverse vineyard sites and sub-regions, delivering an elegant and approachable style.
Our Killerman’s Run Shiraz is made from premium parcels of fruit selected from right across the Clare Valley. Traditional winemaking techniques; including pumping over by hand, basket pressing and keeping all parcels separate until the final assemblage, has created a wine of tremendous varietal power, regional character and consistent quality. A classic, regionally inspired Shiraz favoured by an excellent vintage, characterised by a wet winter and spring and cooler harvest conditions, enabling all parcels of fruit to be picked at the optimum time.

James Halliday Wine Companion, AU

- Excellent colour. Wow, quite a wine at this price. Medium to full-bodied, it ticks all the boxes with a welcoming dark fruit bouquet, the deep-set fruit clasped in the bosom of persistent, but ripe, tannins. Oak has played its part in giving the wine texture, tannins ex the fruit providing structure. Will doubtless sell for less than $20, and is a safe bet for cellaring for 5+ years.
