Killermans Run GSM

Kilikanoon Killermans Run GSM 2016

Clare Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14.5%
Kilikanoon Killerman's Run Grenache Shiraz Mataro is always one of our most popular wines and the 2016 vintage is another fantastic example of this southern Rhone styled blend. The Grenache contributes cherry fruits, toffee and perfume, the Shiraz robustness and structure whilst a small amount of Mataro (10%) adds length, persistence and a savoury twist to the finish.

Review of the 2015 vintage included below;

"Not the most usual of the red blends coming out of the Clare region, more often cabernet and shiraz rule the waves. This plays a robust game from the start –dark fruits with just the right saturation of oak and spice, even a little cola as well with a full-bodied delivery as you taste. Bigger red drinkers will appreciate the drive and depth." - Tony Love, Top 100 Wines 2017, The Advertiser.

Winemaking: Killerman's Run GSM 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.

Nose: Hints of game, savoury meats, red fruits and Medditeranean spices all further enhanced by subtle French oak notes.

Palate: A seamless and rewarding French styled blend, the majority Grenache providing cherry fruits, toffee and perfume, the Shiraz, robustness and structure whilst the 10 percent Mataro giving length, persistence and a savoury twist to the finish. An excellent food wine that will further reward with additional cellaring.
