2015 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz
93 Points, The Wine Advocate,
"The 2015 Shiraz Kalimna Bin 28 has nose of crushed black currants and blueberries with subtle notes of licorice, tar, roses and tapenade. Medium to full-bodied, opulent and densely packed with black fruits and savory layers, it has a solid frame of rounded tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing long." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
Vibrant, fresh and lively.
Long, elongated tannins – sleek, slick and slender!
Dark black-cherry fruit flavours, generous and more-ish! (And just why can’t we say Cherry Ripe!)
Succulent; neither alcohol nor oak intrude. Unobtrusive acidity will ensure cellarability, should it
(hopefully) be pursued.
Autumn and early winter rainfall were above the long-term average. Rain stopped abruptly in early August with
only light showers observed throughout spring. Low top soil moisture halted canopy growth early in the season
giving vines an open canopy. Warm and dry conditions continued throughout the season which resulted in
rapid grapevine growth and early flowering. February brought weekend heat spikes, pushing mean maximum
temperatures well above the average resulting in early ripening and harvest.
