Kilikanoon 'Killermanís Run' GSM, Clare Valley
The reclusive Alan Webster lived alone in the years after the second world war in the scrub land behind the Kilikanoon cellar door, west of the hamlet of Penwortham. Trapping rabbits, growing his own fruits and vegetables and making his own wines in a galvanised lean to, he was given the nickname 'Killerman' by Mort Mitchell and his friends when they were growing up, after Alan's bush survival skills of 'kill em and eat em', thus the legend of Killerman was born.
