- Cork (Vintage dated Diam)
Bindi is a small yet iconic producer best known for making some of Australia's very finest and fastidiously made pinot noir. In all respects they're exactly the type of winery I'd want representing Australia on the world stage.
Sourced from Bindi's Block K (established 2001) and Original (planted in 1988) vineyards, the attractively hazy, lightly shaded 2008 Composition Pinot Noir reveals a fairly straight forward varietal fragrance of red cherry and musk stick enlivened by additional notes of earth/game meats and spice. Still very youthful, its satiny palate gently caresses the mouth with the airy grace of feminine touch, presenting a quietly understated yet seamless marriage of youthful, red pinot berry fruits and savoury earth. It evolves with developing savoury characters and brisk, ultra-fine structure towards a pleasingly dry finish marked by fluffy fruit undertones.
ü Bindi's 2008 Composition is a shining example of the understated, gentle and elegant aspects of young pinot noir. It's a terrific earlier drinking pinot for those who truly appreciate the more subtle characteristics of the variety. Drink to 2014.
