Killerby Wines

Killerby Wines

Established in 1973, Killerby is among the oldest wineries in Margaret River. Since its acquisition by Ferngrove Wine Group in 2008, Killerby Wines has relaunched, opening a cellar door in Margaret River welcoming visitors to the region. Killerby selects parcels of premium Margaret River fruit from specific growers and maintains its small winery approach within the group’s Frankland River facility.

Killerby chardonnay 2014 ($30)

Bouquet opens with a distinctive intensity of Margaret River. Toasty oak, creamy fruit and a savoury mineral edge. The fruit and oak combination works beautifully on the palate, applying control and definition as it takes the wine through to a long finish. It’s a wine that is continuing to evolve and looking good for a few more years.
SCORE 93/100 CELLAR 5 Years

Killerby cabernet sauvignon 2014 ($32)

A wine that captures all that is good about Margaret River. Blackcurrant and a subtle leafy tobacco and black olive influence on the nose. It is immediately engaging. The palate is poised and impeccably balanced with neat tannin and oak supporting some deep fruit concentration.
SCORE 92/100 CELLAR 10 Years
