Kalimna Bin 28 Shiraz is a deep red color. Savory notes quickly hit the radar – gravy/pan-juices, vegemite/soy. Fruits emit quickly thereafter, including notes of boysenberry, mulberry, and quince paste. Wafts of cocoa powder and a hint of vanillin entwine playfully beneath. Tanned (fresh) leather cautiously follows. A medium-bodied and balanced wine that is elegantly proportioned, yet with a firm underpinning. A familial trio of a dark-berried compote, boiled fruitcake mixture and fine chocolate powder – to the varietal tune of Shiraz. "Binding" tannins add to length, reinforcing the extract/character/body of the wine.
