External Reviews for Killibinbin Shiraz Langhorne Creek
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.
An amazing Shiraz, Killibinbin's 1998 is selling of r a song given its quality and pleasure-giving characteristics. Reminiscent of dry vintage port, this black/purple-colored behemoth offers aromas of blackberries, cassis, sweet, damp earth, licorice and chocolate as well as an explosive, full-bodied entry on the palate. Dry, hugely-concentrated, and clearly a heavyweight, with a whopping 16% alcohol, it is neither hot not out of balance. An infant in terms of development, this 1998 should continue to evolve for 10-15+ years.
The name of this winery is the Aboriginal word for "to shine," and this succulent blackberry-scented and flavored Shiraz certainly does that. It possesses an opaque purple color, full body, layers of juicy, succulent fruit, and a velvety texture. The wine reveals notes of pepper, licorice, and toasty oak as it sits in the glass. Drink it over the next decade.
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.
