2014 Killerman's Run Cabernet Sauvignon

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

    Our Killerman's Run Cabernet 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.

    Generally a warm and dry vintage, 2014 provided ideal ripening conditions to maximise enhanced flavour development and palate generosity. The Clare Valley's celebrated terroir and elevation is essential for retaining high natural acidities, fruit freshness and fine grained tannins, which are instrumental in creating cellar worthy wines.

    Appearance

    Brick red in colour with youthful crimson tints.

    Nose

    A generously proportioned nose of cassis, smoky oak and ripe truffles.

    Palate

    • For $20, you could do a lot worse than to sample this wine, which boasts plenty of varietal character and ample quality. Cedar, tobacco, cassis and dark chocolate suggest a fully ripe wine, while the structure remains fine and linear, with gentle, cocoa-powder-textured tannins that line the finish.
