2014 Killerman's Run GSM

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.

Our Killerman's Run GSM has been crafted through careful fruit selection, traditional winemaking techniques, sixteen months maturation in new and seasoned French oak hogsheads and bottling unfiltered to fully enhance the wines character and appeal.

The 2014 vintage was generally a warm and dry one that provided ideal ripeningconditions with which to maximise flavour enhancement and palate generosity. The Clare Valley's celebrated terroir and elevation instrumental in achieving the perfect ratio of fruit ripeness and natural acid retention, necessary to create wines of complexity and balance with real cellaring potential.

Wine Review
Handy wine. Alert and alive. Redcurrant, mint, anise and raspberry flavours keep things moving along nicely. It's not the deepest of reds but the overall shape is excellent. It's been impeccably well managed and assembled and, accordingly, drinks very well as a result.
