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.
Each individual parcel was vinified separately, and remained so until the final wine was assembled. Maturation in a selection of seasoned French oak hogsheads for fifteen months provides a softness and elegance to the silky palate.
Elegant red-fruited aromas with hints of cherry, anise and mixed spices.
Dark red fruits, plum and cherry with sweet spice, leather and liquorice.
Dense flavours of red and dark fruits, blackberry, sweet plums and a peppery spice. The core is concentrated and focused, with a long and savoury finish supported by fine oak tannin. A medium bodied shiraz with flavour and finesse.
