A tribute to Kaye Dhillon (King)...
About The Wine
This small-batch Pinot Noir comes from the most elevated Pinot Noir planting on the Bindi vineyard.
These vines were planted in 2001 on a quartz-riddled plot just below the Mount Gisborne lava flow. This particular site yields wines that are tightly wound with exceptional tension and structure. As such, Dhillon holds this back for an extended period before release.
A fitting tribute to Kaye Dhillon (King), a woman who Michael says was a, "Humanist and nurturer of the people and land at Bindi."
This wine is only ever released in small quantities. With the rush for the small batch releases made by Dhillon's hand, this won't be available for long.
The first vines on Bindi vineyard were planted in 1988 by vigneron Michael Dhillon and his father Bill. The family farm, purchased in the 1950s in the Macedon Ranges, today plays home to some of the country's most precious Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines.
A deep connection to family and place underpins everything that vigneron Michael Dhillon does. His fastidious vineyard management and precision in the winery has seen his label rise over the years as some of the leading examples of Australian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, setting a new benchmark for all Australian producers to strive for.
The wines of Bindi have been heralded the world over for their rare power and clarity. They now find pride of place in some of the world's most discerning cellars. These are collectable, cellar-worthy wines that showcase the unique character of one of Australia's great vineyard sites.
