Bindi 2006 "Original Vineyard" Pinot Noir
Region: Macedon Ranges Victoria
One of the icons of Macedon. The Chardonnay is top-shelf, the Pinot Noir as remarkable (albeit in a very different idiom) as Bass Phillip, Giaconda or any of the other tiny-production, icon wines. The addition of Heathcote-sourced shiraz under the Pyrette label confirms Bindi as one of the greatest small producers in Australia. JAMES HALLIDAY

"Estate vines planted '88, MV6, hand-picked, whole berry wild open fermentation, 14 days on skins, 15 months in French oak (30% new). The brightest clarity of colour of the Bindi Pinots, and by some distance the most elegant and nuanced of the three, moving towards red fruits and a lifted, spiced finish."
