Even in their youth these wines are more profound.
About The Wine
The Bindi Block 5 Pinot Noir is considered one of the benchmark wines for the Macedon Ranges.
With a reputation for being one of the great cellar-worthy Pinot Noirs of Australia, the Block 5 will develop beautifully over the next 10-15 years in appropriate conditions. The small half-hectare portion of the Bindi vineyard that supplies the fruit for this wine is planted on a gentle North-facing slope atop rugged quartz-riddled soil.
It's a darker and more powerful expression of Pinot Noir than its Original Vineyard counterpart. Typically only 150-200 dozen are produced from this special patch of earth.
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.
