Kilikanoon Killerman's Run GSM, Clare Valley, South Australia, 2013
50% Grenache 40% Shiraz 10% Mataro with sixteen months’ maturation in new and seasoned French oak hogsheads and bottled unfiltered.
Dark ruby in colour with youthful crimson tints. Lifted aromas of musk, rose petal and liquorice craftily interweave with notes of French oak char and wood smoke. Silky and textural on the palate yet one that strikes a balance between richness and vivacity. The flavours of liquorice, dark cherries and mocha chocolate feature strongly and meld seamlessly with the peppery tannins and firmed acidity.
Great with tapas sharing plates & meze, spicy red meat dishes. Delicious with Chorizo and porcini risotto. This wine has the potential to cellar for 12 - 15 years.
