2021 Killerman's Run Riesling - DOZEN

Kilikanoon Wines

$200.00 Regular price $264.00

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

    Once harvested, the grapes were placed into the press where they were drained and gently pressed to tank for cold settling. The racked juice was fermented cool for three weeks to retain freshness and delicate aromatics. The finished wine was then stabilised and filtered to ensure clarity and longevity.

    Appearance

    Pale straw with yellow gold hues.

    Nose

    Lime cordial and lemon rind, with subtle floral and tropical notes.

    Palate

    Pine lime splice, green mango and papaya with talcy lemon pith and a slatey minerality. The finish is balanced by a refreshing natural acidity.
