About the wine

Tasting notes

The wines from this vineyard are compelling and delicious when young and as history has shown, going back to the 1992 Bindi Pinot Noir, the wines age exceptionally well from the beginning and drink beautifully for a long time.

Expert review

Deep ruby and purple with a nose that transcends Australian Pinot Noir. It’s romantic, incredibly complex and expresses with purity and beauty. Aromas of red and black berries, deep cherry, roasted fig leaf, white tea, masterfully matched oak spice and sweet Earth express in a fine layered embrace. In the mouth it's in high definition and is, for me, what i'd wish for in Australian Pinot. Elegance, structure, texture and luxury…iron fist in a glove made from something finer than velvet. Deep flavours of raspberry, cherry and fig hold with confidence, kissed with spice and textured by firm fruit tannins that grip with real tension. A seam of unique minerality defines it and gives it an almost hypnotic mystique, while seamlessly interwoven acidity drives the fruit over a very long tail. The balance is magical. It fades slowly, evenly and gracefully...a new benchmark!
