Bindi Wine Growers Block 5 Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Light crystal-clear crimson; there is a spicy background to both bouquet and palate, but it is the intense fruit that provides the heart of an outstanding Block 5; impossible not to think of Burgundy with its texture and superb length.

Slightly deeper purple-crimson than Original Vineyard, although equally clear; the bouquet announces the arrival of a distinctly different fruit register, with plum to the fore, along with black cherry, the mouthfeel and weight fuller, but in no way impinging on the elegance and finesse that is the hallmark of Bindi.

Another very strong Block 5 from Bindi, and where the Composition begs to be drunk immediately, this beckons towards the cellar. There's impressive clarity and purity, fine fragrant complexity and essence-like cherry and strawberry fruit aromas; it opens up nicely in the glass, building in concentration and revealing a core of pristine pinot noir fruits. The palate carries convincing weight and richness, with immaculate elegance and poise. Tannins are full of detail and interest, acidity glimmers through rich, red fleshy fruit, and the finish lingers right in the zone.

Bright, clear colour; the bouquet is, by some margin, the most fragrant and aromatic, bringing both red and black fruits into play, the intense, silky palate coursing majestically to a long, lingering finish, red and black fruits echoing throughout.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2008 Vintage) says
Bindi would easily be in the top three pinot noir producers in Australia - for quality and prestige. When weather conditions suit, it's pretty clear why. Landmark Australian pinot noir. Toasty, spicy, savoury and intense - but then, from the mid-palate onwards, it turns all aristocratic, pulling long and fine. What gorgeous shape this wine has. It has an array of fruit and dark berry flavours with mineral-like complexity studded throughout. Length is not an issue. Outstanding.

The deepest and most profound of the three Bindi Pinots, almost brooding in its intensity, yet the mouthfeel is supple and silky; will thrive for many years to come.

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
A wine with striking fragrance and fine musky perfume that conjures up pinot planted to quartzy soils, restrained and defined, superbly elegant. The palate has terrific density and weight, driving flavours fine and deep, the oak smoulders away behind bright dense cherry fruit. Long, even, regal and complete, crafted with impeccable balance. A rippling masterpiece!

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Complex red and black fruit with touches of spice; a round, supple and sinuous medium-bodied palate offering plum, cherry and spice, with very good length.

Jeremy Oliver (2005 Vintage) says
An exceptional pinot of exemplary perfume, length, structure and intensity. Enhanced by sweet new oak, its ethereal bouquet unfolds aromas of brooding black and red cherries, musky spices, red berries, cloves and cinnamon. Silky and supple yet powerfully flavoured, it's steeped in flavours of cherries, plums, chocolate and briar, with an assertive but pliant underswell of tannins that leave an impression of hidden power and strength.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
A potent wine, with luscious red fruits, almost into confit, off-set by fine, spicy, persistent tannins, and an undertone of earthy forest floor.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
Brooding and tight-fisted, this sumptuously flavoured and elegantly composed pinot is simply waiting to explode with fruit and complexity. It reveals an accentuated sweet and heady rose petal perfume of red cherries and raspberries before a long, finely crafted and ethereal palate. Framed by silky tannins, it builds in volume before a lingering, savoury finish of pure pi not fruit and charcuterie-like undertones.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Perfumed and floral, with musky summer pudding-like aromas of dark cherries and licorice, this deeply flavoured and elegantly structured pinot delivers layers of vibrant and slightly sour-edged fruit framed by a firm structure of bony tannins. Finishes long, savoury and persistent. Very classy indeed.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Dark red-purple; marginally less deep that the Original Vineyard. The bouquet, likewise, is less forthcoming, but this is a relative - and perhaps unfair — judgment, there is an exceptional array of forest, plum, cedar and earth aromas. The palate is concentrated and complex and, like the Original Vineyard, has an almost indefinite cellaring future.
