2020 Killerman's Run Riesling

Kilikanoon Wines

$22.00

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

    All parcels were kept separate, drained and lightly pressed to stainless steel. Following cold settling they were fermented cool for three weeks, with the final blend retaining a small amount of natural grape sugar. This provided additional natural flavour and richness, nicely balanced and complemented by the crisp acidity.

    Appearance

    Pale straw in appearance with green hues and a brilliant clarity.

    Nose

    Intensely focussed, with an abundance of orange blossom, fresh lime and tropical fruits.

    Palate

    A classic Clare Valley Riesling, brimming with bright citrus notes, lemon curd and crisp green apple, accompanied by slate-like minerality and refreshing natural acidity.
