75cl * 14.5% ABV * Clare Valley, Australia
Kilikanoon was founded in 1997 when winemaker and proprietor Kevin Mitchell purchased the property of the same name in the hamlet of Penwortham in South Australia’s picturesque Clare Valley. The vineyards are located in an area with a viticultural history dating back to 1851, when Jesuit settlers appreciated the fertility and grape growing potential of the land. The Killerman’s Run Collection is masterfully composed from Kilikanoon’s diverse vineyard sites and sub-regions, delivering an elegant and approachable style. The Killerman’s Run Shiraz is made from premium parcels of fruit selected from right across the Clare Valley.
Enhanced aromatics of black forest, dark cherry and stewed plums with vanilla and notes of clove and subtle oaky char feature on the nose. Impressive structure, complexity, and generosity of flavour a hallmark of this Shiraz, with flavours of stewed cherries, juicy blackberry and plum with fine dark chocolate and powdery tannins. Clove and star anise are beautifully balanced and supported by subtle oak. Maturation in a selection of seasoned French oak hogsheads for fifteen months provides a softness and elegance to the silky palate.
Pair with roast beef and all the trimmings, Moroccan lamb, pizza or try with a rich vegetable Ragu. Will cellar well until 2025.
