Mr Killerman, as a young Mort Mitchell, of Kilikanoon, 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.
Killerman's Run Cabernet has been crafted through careful fruit selection, traditional winemaking techniques, sixteen months maturation in new and seasoned French oak hogsheads and bottling unfiltered to fully enhance the wines character and appeal.
A Cabernet displaying youthful crimson hues. Alluring notes of dark cherries, liquorice and mint chocolate flavours combine on the nose, beautifully intertwined with subtle hints of French oak spice. The palate is densely layered and textural in style, yet surprisingly elegance and lengthy. The dark cherry and mint chocolate flavours from the nose carry over to the palate, nicely complemented by the fine tannins and good structural, natural acidity. Perfect accompaniment to a roast beef, Yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings. Will cellar well for at least 10 years.
