“It has always been a personal favourite, drinking well when young and when old. It offers a very strong, deep colour, then an exceedingly complex array of dark/black fruits with exemplary tannins and structure, and pulsates on the finish and aftertaste, fruit doing the work, tannins and oak purely support acts. Drink to 2025″ James Halliday 95 Points

“Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz presents lovely, expressive blueberry, black raspberry and black cherries notes highlighted by violets, toast, cinnamon stick and touch of mulberries. Full-bodied and rich, the concentrated fruit is framed by medium levels of rounded tannins, crisp acid and a long, classically-styled finish. Approachable now, it will drink to 2020+.” Robert Parker 92 Points
