2016 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.

  • Winemaking

    Made in a true Rhône Valley style, all of the components were vinified and matured individually in a range of seasoned French oak hogsheads for 16 months before final assemblage and bottling unfined and unfiltered to further complement the wines appeal.

    Appearance

    Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues.

    Nose

    The classic notes of savoury meats, bright red cherries, hints of cocoa and mocha and very subtle French oak char round out the aroma.

    Palate

    This Rhône inspired blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro has been carefully crafted, showcasing fresh dark cherries, bitter chocolate and charcuterie on the palate, well rounded by polished tannins, vibrant acidity and subtle oak influences.
