This Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon takes its name from a local character who was nick-named ‘Killerman’, by Kevin’s father Mort Mitchell. This self-sufficient man, lived alone in a humble tin shed in the hills behind the Kilikanoon Cellar Door. Living off fruit and vegetables and roamed the valley hunting for his meals with rabbits being his favourite. The 'Killerman's Run' range of wines are extremely approachable.

1908 - 2008 ‘celebrating the centenary of Sir Winston Churchill's first champagne order’. Due to Champagne’s weather having a balanced fragility - since the foundation of Pol Roger in 1849 they have observed a tradition of not releasing a vintage-dated champagne unless the climatic conditions facilitated the production of grapes with outstanding ripeness. A vintage champagne must above all else, be balanced.


Grape Varietal: 100% Syrah
Growing Region: Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand
Owner / Winemaker: Peter Robertson

You hear people say - that when it comes to potentially opening a particular bottle of wine, they will wait for a special occasion. Well, when it comes to the ‘Hillside’ Syrah from Brookfields - opening this wine is the occasion. To say this wine is special is like saying winning the lottery is nice. It has been a while since I last reviewed the celebrated Brookfields ‘Hillside’ Syrah. Even though I am reviewing a 2015 vintage wine.
