Kilikanoon Killerman’s Run Shiraz is made from Shiraz grapes farmed from all over Clare Valley. Dark red with deep purple hues in colour, a gorgeous nose of dark red fruits, plum and cherry with sweet spice, leather and liquorice. Finally on the palate, 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.
Kilikanoon Winery, based at Penwortham, was established in 1997 by Kevin Mitchell, an Adelaide University graduate and a Clare Valley winemaker down to his bootstraps. Initially the wines were based on Kilikanoon’s Golden Hillside suite of contiguous vineyards planted by Kevin’s father Mort during the 1960s and 1970s. Low input viticulture and traditional winemaking techniques are extensively employed evoking the idea of hand-made wines. Fastidious attention to detail and a burning ambition to make wines with clear regional definition and individual personality has quickly established Kilikanoon as one of Clare’s top producers.
