2019 Bindi Block 8 Pinot Noir

Block 8, the continuation and turning of the slope from Block 5, sees an increase in fruit depth and power. It is a very special close planted site (from 11,300 to 22,600 vines per hectare) that has been maximised with many clones and intensive farming. There have been a few wines over the years that have served as markers on our Pinot Noir journey. The 1994 Original Vineyard was a revelation; hedonism and finesse with ageworthiness. The 1997 Block 5 is another important marker, both these wines remain delicious today. The 2019 Block 8 sits with this group, it is a personal favourite that has the stamp of a special site in a special season.It is a wine guided by three decades of previous experience on this land with this variety. It has deep red and dark fruits, is dense and complex, has autumnal notes, some root vegetable earthiness, and dried flowers too. The palate is full and lavish, it is creamy and round then intense and driven and long. It will improve for another five years and be delicious for many years beyond. - MICHAEL DHILLON
