A strong vintage for warmer-climate shiraz and this wine is certainly reaping the benefits. The nose has such eclectic fruit aromas that run a full spectrum, from the lighter spiced red-fruit aromas to red plums, through blue fruit to darker blackberries and plums. The palate has impressively layered flavors that run the same broad spectrum as seen on the nose and the tannins are so well groomed and run very, very long. Holds fruit flavor deep.
While named for a Barossa vineyard/locale, the 2018 Bin 28 Kalimna Shiraz, like other recent vintages, is blended from various South Australian GIs. With its rich, dark-berried fruit accented with vanilla, it does a more-than-credible job re-creating that northern Barossan idiom. It's full-bodied, concentrated and plush without going over the top, finishing long and velvety. (JC)
Shows terrific concentration, with dense and chewy tannins providing an appealing backdrop to the blueberry, dried cherry, date and candied ginger flavors. Tobacco, tomato leaf and espresso notes linger on the finish. *Top 100 Wines of 2020*
Deep, dark red/purple colour, with a smoky, toasty-charred oaky bouquet, with underlying blackberry and dark plum fruits. Traces of star anise and graphite, the finish lingering with drying tarry tannins. Fleshy and deep, a wine with potential to reveal more in time. A stylish wine with stuffing as well as elegance.

The first Kalimna Shiraz (in '58) was entirely from the Kalimna Vineyard, but the ensuing decades have turned Kalimna into a trademarked gallop around 9 SA regions, the wine matured in used American hogsheads. If you want a friendly labrador wine, this is it.
Bin 28 is focused on warm-climate shiraz, including Barossa fruit—the wine was originally named for the Kalimna Vineyard in Barossa, though the blend ranges more broadly now. There’s warmth in the boldness of the red-fruit flavors, making them open and yielding, but the wine isn’t thick. It’s an earthy shiraz with the grace and elegance of a well-blended Penfolds wine.
