About The Wine
The Bindi Pyrette Shiraz sees winemaker Michael Dhillon venture farther afield than his home estate in Macedon Ranges.
Here, Michael takes on Heathcote Shiraz, as his family has done for over a decade. The vineyard was selected for its prime position and the deft hands that tend it. It's situated high in the Mount Camel Range, grown on the famous rocky Cambrian soils the region is known for.
Picked at precisely the point where freshness meets flavour, this is a lovely example of Shiraz from this part of the world. Only a small percentage of the fruit is matured in new French oak, this wine is about showcasing a pure, aromatic style of Syrah that doen't shy away from the typical regional richness.
A powerful wine whilst showing still showing restraint, this is a fine version Pyrenees Shiraz made by an astute mind.
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.
