The reclusive Alan Webster lived alone in the years after the second world war in the scrubland behind the Kilikanoon cellar door, west of the hamlet of Penwortham. Trapping rabbits, growing his own fruits and vegetables and making his own wines in a galvanised lean to, he was given the nickname 'Killerman' by Mort Mitchell and his friends when they were growing up, after Alan’s bush survival skills of 'kill em and eat em', thus the legend of Killerman was born.

The 2014 vintage was a very good one for reds in the Clare Valley. Warm days and cool nights promoted full fruit ripeness and flavour development whilst still retaining tremendous poise, natural acidity and tannin balance. An excellent year for enhanced cellaring potential. All of our Killermans’ Run range have 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.

Appearance: Brick red in colour with youthful crimson tints.

Nose: Smoky char notes and sweet berry compote feature brightly on the nose. Hints of black pepper, feral olives and a nice savoury twist.

Palate: Fleshy and textural on the palate with hints of cola, blackberries and sweet plums dominating the flavour profile. Fine tannins and subtle French oak char rounding out the long expressive finish.
