“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. Our policy on quality dictates our range from vintage to vintage – that is to say if its not up to scratch then we won’t release it under our label. On the exceptional years, we keep aside small parcels of the best fruit for the Rifleman – our premium series.
