The Darshan vineyard is a tribute to Bindi founder Bill Darshan Singh Dhillon, who passed in early 2013. Over the first seven vintages, to 2023, we have seen this site produce ethereal wine showing exquisite perfume and spice with a lacey, sinewy, flowing long palate. Darshan , like Original Vineyard, is about perfume and finesse whereas Block 8 and Block 5 share fruit depth and structure in common.

About the wine

Tasting notes

A complex array of fragrant and deeper notes; fruit, earth and plant elements. It's very finely layered. Brown spices lift too. Some smoke, flint, pot pourri. A flicker of wild strawberry. The palate is fresh and open, finely detailed and silky. It flows long and the structure builds and holds. This is a classic Bindi Pinot Noir that is "effortlessly harmonious" (a Tim White quote from 1996), very delicious and ageworthy. -

Expert review

Complex and brooding, leaning savoury with notes of Davidson plum, baked blood orange, Smoky charred bacon fat, brambly raspberry, dark berries, mulberry, deep and salty minerality, truffle and rich soil. In the mouth it’s finely detailed and complex. A savoury edged ménage of blackberry, brambly raspberry, strawberry, black cherries, tomato and Davidson plum hold as one, coloured with gently honeyed rooibos tea, truffled earth and slightly bitter citrus pith. Rounded blood orange-like acidity carries the fruit, breathing freshness into the darker elements, while a crescendo of fine tannins lend tension and tightness.
