Food Pairings for Kilikanoon Killermans Run Shiraz
Wow. This one has made me realize why South Australian shirazes were my first love of wine. Very dark colour, almost black. Wonderful nose - the spice just oozes out of the glass. Superb tasting. Heavy fruit as you would expect - blackcurrant and cherry. Nice and peppery, though not overpowering. Nicely balanced - lingered on the palate for a nice amount of time. Very good wine.
A good shiraz, but really needed decanting. This was very fruity on first opening, but smoothed out over the couple hours it was opened. Decanting would have helped a lot. Much more flavor after it sat open for awhile.
Bold, dark red color. Excellent pallate long and smooth at finish. Earthy nose, hint of pepper.
Very fruity - plums, blackberries, some nice tannins and a touch of mint. A very fruity, full wine with some nice spice on the finish. Excellent. And for the price, very excellent. Served with mild beef curry.
External Reviews for Kilikanoon Killermans Run Shiraz
The dense ruby/purple-hued 2003 Shiraz Killerman's Run (bottled unfiltered with a Stelvin screw cap) reveals remarkable intensity along with beautifully pure, cigar smoke-tinged black currant fruit, and licorice notes. Medium to full-bodied, layered, and rich, with a terrific savory mouthfeel, this is a stunning wine to drink over the next 7-8 years.
The 2002 Shiraz Killerman's Run is produced from vineyards Kevin Mitchell sources primarily in the Clare Valley and Barossa. It is a dense, full-throttle, big, chewy, peppery, black fruit-dominated Shiraz offering sweet tannin, an attractive plushness, and an up-front style designed for consumption over the next 2-4 years.
Ripe and full of minty black fruit - blackberries, blueberries and more. A rich Shiraz with a touch of pepper on the finish that's waiting to tempt your palate. A great red for those who crave an Aussie Shiraz.
The best value here is the 2001 Shiraz Killerman's Run. A 100% Shiraz from Barossa, McLaren Vale, and Clare Valley vineyards, it possesses a deep, saturated plum/ruby color, plenty of black cherry, licorice, pepper, and spicy aromas, medium to full body, a lush, plump palate, and a fat, fleshy finish. Consume it over the next 2-3 years.
