This is gloriously fruited and totally seductive on the nose showing black/blueberry, raspberry coulis, cocoa and toasted hazelnut characters. The palate is concentrated and richly fruited, and offers layers of delicious flavours and velvety texture, wonderfully supported by supple tannins. Delectable and opulent, and superbly structured and very long on the finish. At its best: now to 2025.

"He demonstrates a brilliant touch with Riesling as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The cuvees produced under the 'Killerman's Run' label all represent terrific bargains"
