Bindi Dhillon Col Mt Shiraz 2017
A relatively new wine with a long history. In 2014, Michael began experimenting with four clones in this Heathcote vineyard and blending the results. This wine shows the rewards of patience. There is so much to like here. Michael’s plan is to leave the wine for at least five years prior to release. Crimson/magenta colour. There is some development here but the wine is still youthful. Lovely aromatics, with dark berries, cassis, beefstock, warm earth and mushrooms. There is a plushness and generosity, even an exuberance on the palate. A lingering finish with very fine, if slightly chewy tannins. The palate sees the full flavours on show with at least another six to eight years of enjoyment here. This is a most welcome addition to the portfolio.
