Take one form and turn it into something greater, something that mesmerises with passionate purpose. The Shining Killibinbin is hypnotic, alluring...thrilling.
Deep, vibrant magenta in colour, this wine rewards the senses with stewed plums, black currants and an almost black forest cake aroma. The Shiraz is complemented with a delicate amount of herbaceous Cabernet to provide a palate of generous fruits and a complex structure lending fine textured tannins with an extended finish.

92pts - James Halliday
"Borders on schizophrenia but it keeps it together. Syrupy fruit- and oak-sweetness meets dry, dusty, grassy notes. Plenty of flavour to sink your teeth into; it falls safely into 'no shrinking violet' territory. Gives the value monitor an insistent tap."
90pts - Vinous
"Bright ruby-red. Dark berries, licorice and cracked pepper on the perfumed nose. Round and seamless on the palate, offering gently sweet blackberry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of succulent herbs. Nicely concentrated and lively, delivering solid closing punch, building smokiness and supple, harmonious tannins that lend subtle grip. - Josh Raynolds"
