Killibinbin is Langhorne Creek Shiraz with attitude, it's bold and has a strong sense of self. An intensity of black fruit flavours are entwined with toasty graphite oak, over a sound structure of fine tannins and velvety mouthfeel.

A pure, single estate Shiraz from five individual plantings grown to the distinguished Metala property at Langhorne Creek. The quality of wines produced here are very much the result of dedication and a close connection to the land which goes back five generations. The winemakers live within the vineyard itself, just two minutes down the road from the winery. The estate's patriarch Arthur Formby established vines at Metala in 1891, encouraged to do so by his brother in law Ronald Martin of Stonyfell, where the wines are still made to this day. Killibinbin is treated to an extended maturation of twenty four months in a selection of new and seasoned French and American oak barriques.
