This robust Australian Shiraz was matured for 13 months in second-use American oak hogshead barrels. The 2012 vintage of the Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz offers rich aromas of ripe blackberry, cassis, anise and dark spice. Polished tannins. Pair with a pepper steak.

Reviews and Ratings

Courtney Flood rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Cassis, cocoa, prune, vanilla, and black pepper. Anise and cinnamon finish. Very beautifully made.
Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Deep purple, plum, blackberry, spice and some herbal/floral tones on the nose. Full, dense and extracted on the palate with black cherry, plum, spice and toasty cedar. Fine chalky tannins persist through the rich fruit and juicy acidity. Long finish. This is a big wine that while approachable now, will really come together with 2-3 more years in the cellar. Pair with rich full flavoured dishes - beef/game roasts come to mind.
Tasted Oct 2015
Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Spicy and luscious on the nose with anise, eucalyptus, mint and stewed red fruits. Complex and attractive nose with equally ripe flavours and spice one the palette. Full-bodied, yet well integrated tannins and acidity. Would go well with steak frites.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An abundance of black fruit and warm baking spices on the nose and palate. Full-bodied with some fine tannins and medium acidi. A warm alcoholic fruit driven finish.
I would suggest decanting prior to serving. Pair with grilled meats (well charred). Lots of sauce.
Tasted: October 2015
OTHER: Aged 13 months in old American oak hogsheads, the deep garnet-purple colored 2012 Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz opens with a nose of baked blackberries, mulberries and crème de cassis with hints of licorice, baking spices and a touch of tar. Full-bodied with firm, rounded tannins and tons of fruit, it concludes with a very spicy, long finish. Drink: 2014-2022. Score - 91+ (Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW, erobertparker.com, Oct. 2014) - Community Wine Reviews
