At Kimbolton, we are focused on creating great value wines of distinct regional character at a price that over-delivers on quality.
The Case family has grown premium quality, award-winning fruit since 1946. In 1998, Len and Judy Case produced a tonne of old vine shiraz from their Kimbolton vineyard to enjoy with friends. It turned out to be a great drop, and the Kimbolton label was born.

The Rifleman Langhorne Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Curiously deeper but more developed colour; more concentrated and rich than Fig Tree, despite its lower alcohol; some notes of dark chocolate are in the background, along with ripe tannins. Screwcap.
14.6alc. Rating 93 To 2023. $42. James Halliday’s 2012 Companion
The Rifleman Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2008
Good colour; a medium to full-bodied shiraz that is better able to carry its alcohol than House block, the finish more savoury than warm; has layers of black fruits and licorice, the tannins and oak balance good. Screwcap.

Block 18 Langhorne Creek Sauvignon Blanc 2010
A well- made sauvignon blanc that ticks all the boxes, with an aromatic bouquet and highly flavoured palate, yet avoids any heaviness; the fruit is in the mid spectrum, with some passionfruit to provide lift. Great value. Screwcap.

Special Release Brad’s block Langhorne Creek Montepulciano 2008
A little-known Italian red variety that offers a great deal of tantalising flavours centred around a basket of spices and some crushed tobacco leaf notes and a few red grapes scattered here and there. What I don’t get are its ‘crunchy yet smooth tannins’. Screwcap.
14.9%alc. Rating 91 To 2017. $28. James Halliday’s 2012 Companion
Fig Tree Langhorne Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Has retained good hue, although not particularly deep; the bouquet has good cassis and blackcurrant fruit, with more of the some on the palate. Screwcap.

House Block Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2008
Rating 87 to 2014. $20. James Halliday’s 2012 Companion
Dense reddish / black in colour with an intense nose of Satsuma plums, black & red berries with spice and earthy notes. A big robust palate showing dense flavours of Satsuma plums, black berries with spicy undertones finishing long with toasty vanilla oak flavours.
