2015 is such a good release. The Bindi Dixon is a pure expression of Pinot Noir and so charming. It is still a bit raw but that will come together with time. Give it a good 12 months at least but 7 years would be much better. I’d put this next to something simple like a quality margherita pizza.
One of Australia’s truly iconic producers. Those who love wine know and seek out Bindi’s pristine and pure Chardonnays and elegant and finely structured Pinots Noir. All wines are Estate grown at the beautiful Macedon vineyard. These wines fall into the ‘purchase on sight’ category.
A wholly underrate region in Australia. With a handful of extremely passionate but miserably small producers it is not surprising that those who know don’t really share the knowledge. Outstanding Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and sparkling wine is made here with a few braving some other varietals too.
This is the most elusive grape. It is relatively early ripening and extremely sensitive to terroir. Its perfect place on earth is the Cote d’Or in Burgundy. So haunting are great red Burgundy’s charms that growers everywhere try to emulate them. Pinot Noir is not just a one trick pony, it can make great reds, rosé, sparkling and even sweet wines, whites on occasion and I’ve tasted a decent fortified Pinot Noir too.
