Wine Spectator 90 points - Medium deep garnet-purple in color, the 2011 Shiraz Killermans Run offers ripe cassis, blackberries and tar notes aside some hints of tree bark. Medium-bodied, crisp and fresh, it is a peppery and savory style of wine with soft tannins and a long finish. Drink it now to 2018.”,,,
Australian Shiraz as it was before its demise at the stumpy hands of a Technicolor kangaroo. Deep and luscious flavors envelope the palate while chocolate and blueberry notes greet the nose. This is shiraz approaching the concentrated, rich, opulent qualities that built Australia's reputation, not the newer, jammy variety. Enjoy this wine with roast beef, lamb in a mint jelly sauce, or Texas barbecue (tangy barbecue, not the St. Louis sweet barbecue).
|Wine maker notes
Rich and powerful in both fruit flavour and palate persistence the ‘Killerman’s Run’ Shiraz offers outstanding value to those seeking a wine that will accompany a range of meats and fine foods. Small batches of Shiraz were selected from a range of premium South Australian vineyards then vinified by traditional winemaking methods and matured for up to two years in small French and American oak casks before careful blending and bottling unfiltered.
