About

95

"The Clare riesling style is undergoing a slight style adjustment to include a touch of residual sugar and it's working. Citrus blossom, kaffir lime, cardamom and grapefruit aromas. The palate starts steely with brisk acidity but launches into a mid-palate texture that isn't noticeably sweet but definitely rounds out the acid bite. Don't overchill."

92 Wine Spectator

"Mouthwatering, offering a mix of mandarin orange, ruby grapefruit and peach notes, with lip-smacking acidity. Details of minerality and lanolin take this white to the next level, and all the flavors sing on the long finish. Drink now through 2029. 500 cases imported. — MW"

"A spicy and fruity white with sliced, spiced pear and green-apple aromas and flavors. Full body. Fruity and flavorful. Drink now."

91 Wine Enthusiast

"Despite being the more entry-level bottling of Kilikanoon's Rieslings, this Killerman's Run is a more characterful and youthful drop, while still bearing the producer's hallmark austerity. It's pale gold in color, and the nose wafts a perfume of toasted hazelnut, fig, lime, lavender and honeycomb. In the mouth it's silky with elevated acidity and lovely fruit weight. Drink now–2025."

Product Description:

"Lifted and intense, featuring fresh limes, floral notes, lemon curd and granny smith apples in abundance. A classic Clare Valley Riesling in every sense, beautifully poised and measured, the combination of fresh limes and lemon essence carrys forward from the nose superbly supported by crisp natural acidity and a green apple finish." -Winery
