Showcasing the most distinguished of Kilikanoon's terroir, and produced only during the finest of vintages, Mort's Reserve Riesling is a symphony of texture and complexity, exhibiting the unique and unequivocal essence of Kilikanoon.
The 2014 vintage really turned it on when it counted the most, with warm, late summer days and very cool nights being the prevailing order of things as the harvest approached. This textbook finish to the season, being perfect conditions in creating Classic Clare Valley Rieslings of vibrant acidity, intense flavour profiles and long ageing potential.
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 Golden Hillside Riesling is a blend of 100% Watervale Riesling. This Riesling is fresh, crisp and bone dry showcasing Watervales natural acidity. The Golden Hillside Riesling is designed to be enjoyed in its youth.
"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"
