Winery Note:


Fruit from the Original Vineyard (30%, Est. 1988) and Block K (70%, Est. 2001) makes up this wine. A small proportion of whole bunches (5%) are included in the vats with the majority of the fruit being de-stemmed but not crushed. A small amount of sulphur is added on the first day and the ambient yeast takes about four days to begin the fermentation. This wine spent 11 months in French barrels, of which 20% were new, before bottling. The classic Bindi Pinot signature of perfume and red fruits is immediately evident here. There are also some darker fruit notes and spice aromas giving added complexity. The balance of roses, red and dark cherry, raspberry youthfulness with more earthy and savoury complexities is very pleasing at this early stage. The palate is fleshy, supple and silky with fine tannins and balanced acidity carrying the fruit for a long finish. There is so much appeal right now it's hard to recommend cellaring however another three years will give added complexity and it will drink well for a decade.

Winery Note:

All Bindi wines are grown in our vineyards and made by us at Bindi. Our vines grow in a mix of ancient stony/rocky Ordovician soils and younger volcanic soil. We intensively manage the vines by hand and harvest by hand. We plough under vine and do not use systemic herbicides. We do not use systemic foliage sprays or pesticides. We use compost and compost tea and also use cow horn preparation, fish and seaweed. Our wines are made without adding yeast, yeast nutrient, enzyme or any fining agents. The wines spend many months on yeast lees in old and new French barrels. Our intention is to capture the expression of the Bindi landscape in our wines each season.
