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 favorite 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 uncompromising quality and consistency.
The 2018 Kilikanoon Clare Valley Killerman's Run Shiraz is dark red with deep purple hues. Dark red fruits, plum and cherry with sweet spice, leather and licorice.
The aromas carry through to the palate, where they are wrapped in plush, velvety tannins. Measured use of oak is well integrated providing structure and poise to what is a very moreish wine.
