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

Tasting Notes
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.
Vineyard Notes
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.
