Bindi Original Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Bindi Original Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Availability: Out of stock


"(25% new oak): Brilliant red. Powerful smoke- and spice-accented red berry liqueur and rose pastille scents pick up notes of allspice and cola with air. Sweet and seamless on the palate, with juicy raspberry and floral flavors showing an alluring spiciness and a touch of blood orange. This powerful yet lithe Pinot finishes with strong, spicy cut and silky, slowly building tannins that fold effortlessly into the wine's vibrant fruit. Drinking window: 2020-2025. 93 points.

One of Australia's most highly regarded winemakers, Michael Dhillon was among the first to attempt to match Burgundy at its own game. The elegant wines that he began producing from his family's vineyards in the early 2000s were among the first Aussie Chardonnays and Pinots to show the tension, balance, finesse, understatement and ageworthiness that one expects from the best Burgundies. His wines, which have enjoyed cult status since the outset, helped pave the way into the market for a new generation of fellow winemakers who are now redefining and often confounding the stereotypes and expectations most consumers have of "Australian wine." Bindi Wines is still one of the country's most consistent high-end producers of both reds and whites but production is small and Dhillon enjoys rabid world-wide demand for everything he makes. These wines are worth the search and not-insignificant investment."
