Crumbly brown earth, dark chocolate and cocoa, a slight menthol whip across the back palate. Still only medium bodied with classy, fine tannin to close. The dark horse in the Bindi stable and well worth a look. - Ches Cook, FWC.
This project now goes back two decades to 2001. The seasonal stamp is always there. These are not formulaic wines, scrubbed and rubbed into an overriding house style. The harvest date and winemaking are focused in ensuring a balanced wine that shows the markings of the year. (As James Halliday says, a Pinot Noir winemaker's Shiraz!). The 2020 is a delicious and harmonious continuation of the style showing complex dark fruits, earth, spice and graphite. The palate is initially supple and fleshy then builds intensity for a long and balanced finish. It will become more complex and textured over the next six years. – Michael Dhillon, Winemaker
