Pale Ruby in colour. Aromatic notes of confectionery and strawberry. On the light bodied palate candied red fruits, some sappiness with very little Tannin. Not for further cellaring but a delicious little Pinot right now. Bindi is always in the conversation regarding one of the top Australian producers of the Burgundian varietals. — 3 months ago
Haven't updated here in a while now, but I've been drinking well and Google Keep has been my trusty note-taker. Thought I kick things off with this absolutely killer wine. I know I said that Michael's wine fell victim to the heat of 16' after drinking the vintage's Block 5, but this wine was the total opposite - just brimming with elegance and nerve. Floral, red fruited, spicy, silky, ethereal.
NB: Looking at them both within such a short time frame really paints a wonderful picture of site difference. We all know this, but its nice to be reminded. Both MV6, just from neighbouring vineyards, the OV being a bit older. I guess Michael does say the Block 5 typically needs more time to develop the suppleness of the OV, but the OV's just such a joy to drink atm. Best 16' Pino I've had from Australia so far. — 5 months ago
As mentioned in previous posts Bindi make some of the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Australia but they are a small producer. Funky leesy mineral (coming from the Quartz riddled vineyard - hence the name) notes. Great intensity on the palate with citrus overtones. Strikes a good balance between the luscious peaches and cream style and the acidic leaner Chablis styles. Definitely one of Australia’s better Chardonnays- singing at 10 years. — 3 months ago

Dry cassis, blackberry and spices. Not too sweet. Super drop. — a month ago
Light ruby in colour - translucent in parts. Notes of cherry and toffee. Light to medium bodied palate but excellent intensity showing its pedigree as one of Australia’s better Pinots with time in Decanter. Resolved ultra fine Tannins. A good Block 5 if not a little on the light side. — 2 months ago
