“The most striking characteristic about the 2015 Kostas Chardonnay is how it makes you smile. It is so poised and effortlessly balanced. Underneath the ease and charm there is an exceptional level of complexity and detail. The nose is very classy in its transparency and minerality. There are aromas of lemons, cream, spice complemented by yellow and orange blossom fragrance. The palate is very youthful. It is fresh, vibrant, very dry, tight, textured, expansive, harmonious and long. This classic Bindi Chardonnay will cellar and improve for over a decade and already offers beautiful drinking.” Michael Dhillon, Winemaker at Bindi.
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.
The grape that you can plant anywhere, in any climate and do anything to and it will still taste like an OK wine. When people hit the sweet spot of site, climate, cropping and winemaking, Chardonnay becomes a magical wine that will age gracefully but charm you at any age. Chardonnays can range from cool climate lean and citrusy to warmer climate tropical and overt. Oak and lees can add flavouring as can malolactic fermentation.
