Brothers in Arms Killibinbin Scream Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Langhorne Creek South Australia
There are no secrets to the success of Brothers in Arms. Vines were established in 1891 and have been husbanded by the same family of growers ever since. Their connection with the land is strong and whatever they do, they do it well from the start. The winemaking itself is never hurried, the focus is always on quality rather than quantity. 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.

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.
