Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Shiraz-Grenache “Killerman’s Run is composed of 60% Shiraz and 40% Grenache and was aged for 16 months in older French and American oak hogsheads before bottling without fining or filtration. Dark ruby-colored, it has an alluring perfume of cinnamon, cassis, kirsch, and blueberry. Velvety-textured, elegant, and intensely flavored, it has a long, pure finish. It will provide pleasure over the next 8-10 years."
