Bindi Dixon Pinot Noir 2017 (Macedon Ranges)

The Bindi Dixon Pinot Noir is based upon declassified grapes from the Original Vineyard planted in 1988 and grapes from the new Block K, planted in 2001.

The ideal of this wine is to produce a delicious, perfumed, spicy harmonious, textured wine that is not as intense, complex nor ageworthy as our individual vineyard wines.

Even when the outstanding Block K vines are older we will continue to declassify sections or barrels from each vineyard and produce this wine.

‘Bindi’, 50 kilometres north-west of Melbourne in the Macedon Ranges, is the family property of the Dhillon family. Originally purchased in the 1950s as part of the larger grazing farm ‘Bundaleer’, ‘Bindi’ is a 170 hectare farm of which 7 hectares are planted to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Fifteen hectares are dedicated to managed plantation eucalypts for high grade furniture timber whilst the remainder of the land is maintained as remnant bush land and important indigenous grasslands.

The Bindi vineyard is the fundamental focus of our endeavors. Our vineyard and winemaking philosophy is to seek balance and purity in the expression of our various individual vineyard sites and this philosophy is applied to farming and conservation at ‘Bindi’; the preservation of the natural harmony.

This wine was formerly called Bindi Composition Pinot Noir.

Our fermentations occur without addition of yeast, yeast nutrient or enzyme. Our reds are gently worked, delicate pressing, long lees ageing in French barrels and minimal racking. No fining and restricted filtration regimes are followed.

The wine is fermented the same way as our other Pinot Noirs in that it is ostensibly 100% de-stemmed and gently worked in small open vats. The wine spends 11 months in French barrels, of which about 10-15% is new.

Production varies from 500-700 dozen per vintage.

Reviews & Accolades

2016 Vintage
"A mix of pinot noir clones makes for the many notes in the score. The hand-work of vineyard tending extraordinarily dedicated by Michael Dhillon and team to ensure the grapes are at maximum health. Dixon is so on song from 2016. A small (around 5%) inclusion of whole bunch, fruit from the Original vineyard and a 2001-planted plot. Geez, how good will these wines be in 10, 20, 50 years from this site (notwithstanding that global warming might/will have an impact). What a boon it is that we have Bindi. And, for many winemakers, a wonderful template, if you can call it that, to work towards. Stunning from first sip where the fruit hits the palate juicy and bright, sleek, cherry-pip and with that light suede texture that great pinot noir can get. Elixir-like, concentrated yet gliding, the fresh with the savoury, earthy, slatey and stony. It’s rich too, but not over the top, warmth and generosity then a fresh, cool finish. Just superb."
