Overview

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',

The legend of Killerman was born...

An absolutely beautiful wine, at a worth trying it price.

Expert Reviews

Worth championing. Effortless, balanced, bright-fruited and spice-laden. Cherries, aniseed, twigs, raspberries and cloves. Just enough firmness. Beautiful wine at a beautiful price. CM - Australian Wine Companion, Rating 95, 27th July 2015

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark ruby in colour with youthful crimson tints.

Aroma

Lifted aromas of musk, rose petal and liquorice craftily interweave with notes of French oak char and woodsmoke.

Palate

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.

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.
