Killibinbin Shiraz Langhorne Creek 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright lifted fruit characters initially stand out and then there is some tar, leather, savoury spice and soy character that combines nicely with brambly fruit. The oak is well integrated and the grainy tannins add complexity.

In the beginning... Killibinbin Wines commenced production in 1997. producing a "massive" 400 cases of Langhorne creek Shiraz. This wine sold out in six weeks, was critically acclaimed around the world and launched a new career in wine production for Killibinbin founders, premium wine retailers and obsesses "wine nuts". Those long days of selling, promoting and marketing (not to mention the countless tastings) of other people wines confirmed only one thing. We wanted to produce our own wine. So armed with the seven principles of founding an internationally recognized wine label, namely No vineyards, No grapes, Np winery, No winemaker, No money, Loads of Gumption and A great passion for wine as well as heaps support (and a few good ideas) from Wayne's wife, Sue and Liz's husband Richard Killibinbin was born.

Nose: Rich, almost jammy red fruits, earth, leather, spice and well-balanced oak. Palate: Rich red fruit, spice, leather and tar, sharp fresh acid, tannins still quite firm.

The 2002 vintage at Langhorne Creek is regarded as one of the best for many years and has resulted in a Shiraz of great distinction. The bouquet, whilst quiet tight at this early stage, show a lovely combination of lifted red and black berries, spice, earth, tars and leather. This combination of sweet and savoury characteristics follows through to the palate that is rich, ripe and opulent and shows a wonderful balance between fruit, soft ripe tannins, acid and oak. The flavours are vibrant, complex and quiet intense and will continue to develop for many years to come.

The deep blue/purple-colored, blockbuster 2001 Shiraz boasts impressive blackberry fruit notes along with admirable purity, full body, and a dense, fragrant, opulent personality. As my tasting notes read, it is "just a lot of fun to drink." Some air-head will no doubt suggest there is a lack of terroir character, but that is irrelevant given the enormous pleasure this wine provides. Drink ot over the next 7-8 years.

I have immensely enjoyed the big, sweet, rich fruit found in Killibinbin's reds. Another fruit bomb-styled effort (that seems to embody the character of these wines, which all come from a Langhorne Creek vineyard known as Metala), the 2000 Shiraz (14.5% alcohol) exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as gorgeous sweet, crunchy, blackberry and cherry fruit presented in an uncomplicated, but impressively delicious, succulent, hedonistic style. Enjoy it over the next 7-8 years.
