Winery Note:

As is usual, the juice goes to barrel straight from the press tray, with no additions of yeast, nutrients or enzymes. Once the juice is in barrel a small amount of sulphur is added and then we wait, usually about five days, for the fermentation to begin. The wine spent 11 months on yeast lees in French barrels, of which 25% were new, before bottling. Following the marvelous 2015 Kostas is quite a challenge for the 2016 wine and happily it has risen to the task. As always, here there is a lot of fragrance of lemon and pithy grapefruit lifted by white flowers and orange blossom. The year on all solids and lees has added mealy complexity and a gentle savoury restraint. The palate is mouth filling, intense in acidity, creamy, flowing, relatively rich and very long. There is a certain chalkiness and tension in the wine that weaves its was through the back palate and sits inside the harmonious finish. Another three years will be of great benefit in delivering added complexity and texture.

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.
