Kilikanoon Killerman's Run Shiraz 2015
SOLD OUT - Click here for the 2016 Vintage
2015 was an excellent vintage overall. A very dry Spring was broken by soaking rains in January and February that put the vintage back on track. Cool conditions for the most part of February finished things off well, spacing out the harvest and allowing individual fruit parcels to be harvested at their optimum ripeness.
Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues.
Lifted aromas of red fruits, dark cherries, exotic spices and seductive French oak char enliven the senses.
Beautifully crafted, texturally rewarding yet possessing perfect balance and linearity, the flavours of dark cherries, hints of smoked meats and red fruits seamless combine with the fine boned tannins and subtle oak nuances in a long and persistent finish.
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.
Crafted through careful fruit selection, traditional winemaking techniques, sixteen months maturation in new seasoned French oak hogsheads and bottling unfiltered to fully enhance the wines character and appeal.
The wine is masterfully composed from Kilikanoon’s diverse vineyard sites and sub-regions, delivering an elegant and approachable style. Winery Notes

"Soft but vibrant, this wild and briary shiraz is a delightful early-drinking red whose spicy, peppery expression of small berry flavour is carefully matched with creamy cedary oak and a pliant spine of supple tannins. Punctuated by a bright acidity, its lingering core of fruit finishes with pleasing balance and a note of licorice."
"Toasty oak and charred blackened fruit on the nose of this attractive full-wallop Australian Shiraz.
