Intense brick red in color with youthful crimson hues, the 2009 Killerman's Run Shiraz has both power and finesse that showcases the appeal of Australian Shiraz - richly fruit driven, balanced and powerful. The aromas are abundant while the palate is beautifully textural and persistent. Both perfectly link ripened plum fruits, dark chocolate and spice with quality oak char and natural fine grained tannins.
"Strong, deep colour; this is an extraordinarily good full-bodied shiraz at the price, with classic blackberry and tar fruit together with just the right amount of oak influence and balanced tannins; multi premium SA regions."
Australian Wine Companion
"A terrific value, the 2009 Killerman's Run Shiraz is full bodied, creamy in texture and endowed with a long, velvety finish. The dark berry-black cherry fruit is big, but balanced by notes of cedar, mocha, chocolate and vanilla. Editors' Choice."
"Supple, ripe and refined, offering a generous, open-textured hit of blackberry, licorice and smoke flavors that linger easily against fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2017."
