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 Killerman’s Run Shiraz is made from premium parcels of fruit selected from right across the Clare Valley. Traditional winemaking techniques; including pumping over by hand, basket pressing and keeping all parcels separate until the final assemblage, has created a wine of tremendous varietal power, regional character and consistent quality.
Brick red in appearance with youthful crimson tints.
Enhanced aromatics of dark fruits, kitchen spices, fresh tar and cedary oak notes feature prominently on the nose.
Impressive structure, complexity and generosity of flavour a hallmark of this Shiraz, the dark fruit and spice flavours carry over confidently from the nose, beautifully balanced and supported by subtle oak, natural tannins and acid infusion in a long sculptured palate.
