Originally formulated for the American market by one of South Australia's premier wineries, Killerman's Run has come to represent peerless value. Fruit is sourced from good vineyards in the Clare and Barossa Valleys, McLaren Vale, and exciting new winegrowing districts like Baroota on the Spencer Gulf. Exclusive access to over a thousand acres of superior, group owned sites ensures quality. Small batches are collated from a range of estate and independent vineyards, then vinified to traditional winemaking methods, followed by extended maturation in a selection of seasoned and new French oak hogsheads, before assembing and bottling without any filtration.
Deep brick red colour with youthful crimson hues. Intensely lifted aromas of ripe plum, dark cherries and sublimely focused French oak spice permeate the nose. Textural and persistent, a beautifully crafted palate, carrying over the ripe plum and dark cherry fruits from the nose, elegantly integrating the fine French oak char, balanced natural tannins and acidity resolve on the persistent finish.
