One approach for muliticites is to drop a placeholder and then replace
it with an export filter.  I've been using these two for a while and
they seem to work fine.

** Filters for multicites
*** Filter for parencites
Add the placeholder with alt-p

#+name: tsd-parencites
#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(defun tsd-latex-filter-parencites (text backend info)
  "Replace parencites placeholders in Beamer/LaTeX export."
  (when (memq backend '(beamer latex))
    (replace-regexp-in-string "π" "\\parencites" text nil t)))
(add-to-list 'org-export-filter-plain-text-functions
             'tsd-latex-filter-parencites)
#+END_SRC

*** Filter for textcites
Add the placeholder with alt-t

#+name: tsd-textcites
#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(defun tsd-latex-filter-textcites (text backend info)
  "Replace textcites placeholders in Beamer/LaTeX export."
  (when (memq backend '(beamer latex))
    (replace-regexp-in-string "†" "\\textcites" text nil t)))
(add-to-list 'org-export-filter-plain-text-functions
             'tsd-latex-filter-textcites)
#+END_SRC


It looks like this in the text:

  A recent replication experiment that used stone tools in
  the manufacture of an outrigger canoe identified six functional types
  of stone adze that correspond generally with the six types established
  by Duff
  π[[multicite:turner00:_funct_desig_distr_new_zealan_adzes][;;turner
  diss]] [[multicite:turner05:_funct_and_techn_explan_for][;;turner
  nzja]].

My link syntax is a bit different, but the same basic idea:

(org-add-link-type
 "multicite" 'ebib-open-org-link
 (lambda (path desc format)
   (cond
    ((eq format 'latex)
     (if (not desc) (format "{%s}" path)
         (format "[%s][%s]{%s}"
                 (cadr (split-string desc ";"))
                 (car (split-string desc ";"))  path))))))

hth,
Tom
