The Latest Releases

 

Kostas Rind Chardonnay 2018

Named after a close family friend and early mentor to the founder of Bindi Wines, Kostas Rind Chardonnay is a known for its ability to balance ripeness with a taut minerality. The 2018 vintage has produced wines that continue the tradition of balance and expressiveness.

From a 1.5 ha plot, the fruit for this wine is harvested by hand and pressed directly to barrel where fermentation took place using indigenous yeasts. Maturation was in French oak barrels, approximately 20% of which was new. This wine will drink well from now through until 2028+.

Dixon Pinot Noir 2018

Formerly known as the Composition Pinot Noir, the Dixon is produced from fruit declassified from the Original Vineyard and the Block K plots. The style is one of intense perfume, spice and texture.

Fermentation for this wine took place in open-top vats and was a mixture of 95% destemmed berries with 5% whole cluster to heighten the aromatic character of the wine. After 11 months in barrel, approximately 10-15% of which was new, the wine was bottled for release. Enjoy now through until 2023+

Pyrette Heathcote Shiraz 2017

A delicious outlier in the Bindi stable and always a pleasure to pop open and drink! The 2017 vintage was cool and this has provided wines with lifted aromas, spice and excellent (read delicious) purity of fruit.

Two vineyards in Heathcote contribute fruit for this wine – one on the Mount Camel Range in Heathcote where vines grow on the red Cambrian soil for which the region is famed and the other, a more southerly vineyard with a mix of shattered rock and Cambrian soil. Fermentation was in large vats using indigenous yeast, before maturation in French barrels (10% new). Drink now but if you can keep your hands off it, it will drink well through until 2025+
