5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion

“Few Australians come closer to the Burgundy model of the vigneron than Michael Dhillon of Bindi (pictured). Working entirely with a single, 6ha (hectare), cool-climate vineyard, Dhillon crafts spectacularly refined, delicate, compact and multi-layered Chardonnays (and Pinot Noirs) of great precision.” -  Decanter

"One of the icons of Macedon. The Chardonnay is top-shelf, the Pinot Noir as remarkable (albeit in a very different idiom) as Bass Phillip, Giaconda or any of the other tiny-production, icon wines. The addition of Heathcote-sourced shiraz under the Pyrette label confirms Bindi as one of the greatest small producers in Australia." - James Halliday

"Bindi is one of the best and most important vineyards in Victoria. Found just south of the town of Gisborne, it is planted to pinot noir and chardonnay on a variety of sites, soils and aspects. With increasing vine age now providing more underlying richness and complexity, its low-cropped wines are entering a new phase of excellence. Frankly, they are probably being helped by global warming, but there is no denying that for such a cool site, it is regularly achieving in its fruit a rare combination of richness, intensity and focus." - Jeremy Oliver

Bindi Kostas Rind Chardonnay 2017 - 2 Bottles

“Brilliant very pale straw colour with greenish highlights around the outskirts and a watery hue. Pronounced ripe white peach and nectarine aromas laced with dried honey are followed by some flinty matchstick like notes, citrusy nougat and hints of biscuit. Medium weight with a minerally freshness coursing through its veins and subtle creaminess to the mid palate, flavours of white peaches, citrus and nectarines are underpinned by flinty characters, lightly roasted biscuit and nougat. The richness building incrementally across the palate. Dry vibrant finish with brisk acidity. Concludes with white peaches, nectarines, subtle dried honey, gun flint and traces of biscuity nougat. Cellar 5-6 years.” 96 Points, Nicks

Bindi Quartz Chardonnay 2017 - 1 Bottle

“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 has spent 12 months on yeast lees in French barrels, of which 35% are new, and bottling will take place early June. This is a classically styled Quartz displaying grapefruit and lemon aromas, white and orange blossom fragrance with spice and leesy/mealy complexities. It is rich and full, fresh and intense and builds through the palate for a powerful, flowing, long finish. It has a taut, dry, fresh conclusion. As is usual, this wine will improve with careful cellaring for a decade or more.” – Michael Dhillon

Bindi Dixon Pinot Noir 2017 - 2 Bottles

“The 2017 Dixon spent 11 months in barrel and was bottled in late February. It is spicy and pure in red fruits and shows finesse of fruit and depth of earthy and savoury elements. The palate is harmonious and highlighted by supple fruit, freshness and persistent tannins. It is notable for the beautiful perfume it exhibits. With air it becomes even more fragrant and the structure builds. Some recent bottles enjoyed, going back to 2006, show that the delicious and seductive characteristics these wines show when young are no barrier to ageing positively and delivering a compelling and vibrant wine at a decade of age.” – Michael Dhillon 

Bindi Original Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017 - 1 Bottle

“The Original Vineyard has over its history become know for its signature perfumed bouquet and silky, pure palate. This relatively quartz riddled, gently north sloping three acre vineyard produces very fine, spicy, fragrant wine that has high natural acidity and develops beautifully given 6-10 years careful cellaring. As it ages the depth of aroma increases in and the palate becomes increasingly harmonious and is characterized by a sweet fruited, textured flourish. In comparison to the Block Five this wine is more seductive and delicious in its youth whilst still significantly rewarding cellar time. The wine spends 15-17 months in French barrels of which about 25% are new. The wine is never oak driven. Production typically varies from 300-450 dozen per vintage.”- Michael Dhillon
