Winemaker's Notes

Number 54 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

"This beauty reminded me of one of the Wine Advocate's great value picks from the late 1970s ... Chateau Souverain's 1974 Vintage Selection. Just as sexy and opulent, but made from a completely different blend, the 2004 Killerman's Run Shiraz/Grenache (60% of the former and 40% of the latter) comes from older vineyards in the Clare, Barossa, and Baroota valleys. This is a voluptuous Aussie red offering loads of cassis and black raspberry fruit along with small quantities of pepper and roasted Provencal herbs, and an opulent, full-throttle, beautifully pure, layered, impressively endowed style. Drink it over the next 3-4 years."
-Wine Advocate

A classic and complex blend of Shiraz and Grenache has created a truly balanced wine that fits perfectly the philosophy of our second ‘Killerman's Run' label that is to source the best fruit possible from a range of premium areas of South Australia. Made traditionally in small batches and matured for up to two years in older French and American oak casks before final blending and bottling unfiltered.

Intense brick red in color with crimson tints. Lifted aromas and flavors of ripe plums, prunes and subtle charry oak characters meld together. Rich and rewarding, the Shiraz and Grenache compliment one another perfectly giving a long structured finish, sweet mid palate and seamless oak fruit integration. Ripe plum, prune and coffee flavors predominate. Cellaring potential of at least 6 – 8 years.

Learn About Rhone Red Blends
