Old Mr Killerman lived alone in the bush land behind Kilikanoon wines’ Clare Valley cellar door. Trapping rabbits, growing fruits and vegetables and as legend has it, making his own wines in a galvanised iron lean-to.

From the 2012 vintage, our Killerman’s Run Rhone styled blend has been given a new lease on life, starting with its new Clare Valley appellation to the introduction of ten percent Mataro into the mix. Now a bonefide GSM blend, it combines the savoury, meaty notes of the Mataro, the perfumed cherry and dark chocolate flavours from the Grenache and the robust backbone and riper plum characters of the Shiraz in a truly textural and beguiling regional wine.

A sensational season for 2012 reds, each individual parcel was vinified and matured individually in small, older French oak casks. Coming together later, to be bottled, unfined and unfiltered, ready to be enjoyed now upon release or allowed added complexity if carefully cellared.

Expert Reviews

A 51/39/10% blend; this wine has always offered great value, and this is right up there with its forerunners; brightly coloured, its juicy and fresh fruits are backed by good tannins. Will live, but is ready now. Rating 91 - Drink by 2019, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014)

A classic Rhone styled palate, one that brings together all the complementary nuances and fl avours of the three noble varieties in a refi ned and long palate experience.


Potential of at least 10 – 12 years

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Kilikanoon Wines is a boutique winery with an international reputation, located in the heart of South Australia’s stunning Clare Valley. Since 1997 and his first Clare Valley vintage, founder and winemaker Kevin Mitchell has produced wines of individuality with strong regional and varietal definition. Clare Valley, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and now Hermitage terroir is all important, especially for their Shiraz, Riesling, Grenache and Cabernet single varietals.

Like many Australia winemakers Kevin Mitchell is highly trained in both the scientific and artistic sides of winemaking. He also comes from a long tradition of grape growing in South Australia’s beautiful Clare Valley, where grapes have been grown and wine made since the 1850s.

The first Kilikanoon release was in 1998, with 1997 vintage Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache and two 1998 Rieslings. Since that time Kevin has continually refined his skills and has produced a wide portfolio of Kilikanoon wines from some of Australia’s finest terroir.

Kilikanoon’s philosophy is to make the best wines from the best grapes, no matter where they are, so recently we went to France! We make wine in two regions- the Loire Valley and the Rhône Valley.

In late 2007 Kilikanoon, along with partners Janet Holmes à Court and Greg and Kerrie Paramor acquired Seppeltsfield in the Barossa Valley, one of Australia’s most revered and historic wineries, established in 1851 and the home to one of the world’s finest collections of barrel-aged fortified wines, including the unique unbroken collection of Vintage dated 100 year old Para Tawny (port) dating back to 1878, when the first wines were laid down, not to be bottled for 100 years.They are delighted to celebrate our first decade. The next looks to be just as exciting.
