After being tagged on Instagram earlier this week by someone who was enjoying a Kilikanoon Prodigal Grenache, i promised myself i’d open a bottle this week from the same winery.
It was a toss up between Killerman’s Run or the Covenant and tonight the 2012 Killerman’s Run won out. Probably because i still have one of those left…..
One of my favourite things is to see the gorgeous plum colours spill from the bottle to the glass and this Shiraz did not disappoint. Lush, deep, plum with a fragrance you’d expect from fruit of those colours.
The first taste of this wine is like liquid gold. I immediately get a sense of Alan Webster sitting back after a day of trapping rabbits & tending to his garden enjoying his most favourite beverage in total bliss because, that’s exactly the state i am in right now. Alan possessed great bush skills and his “kill em & eat em” catch cry soon earned him the nickname, Mr Killerman, by Mort Mitchell when the lads were a couple of young knock-abouts.
This wine is nothing short of rich, lush and, creamy and would be a great wine for those advancing their red wine journey from a Merlot to a Shiraz.
It’s a very easy drinking red and even though it would be perfect in winter with a slow cooked shank & mash, it goes very well during any season on any day of the week.
At $20 a bottle, this is a great value red to take to your next dinner party.
Here’s cheers to Alan Webster, Mort Mitchell and, rabbits!
