Bindi Kaye 2021


My first thought here was that there would hardly be a winery in Australia which would not be thrilled if they could offer this wine as their finest. At Bindi, it sits among a collection so impressive that a wine like this could be lost in the throng. Don’t let that happen. This is a scintillating Pinot. From the single vineyard, Block K, named after Michael’s mother, this is the most elevated planting at the estate, established in 2001. Usually, only 70 to 150 dozen are made. Pale crimson, we have notes of red cherries, truffles, bay leaves, cranberries and minerals plus florals, spices and rose petals with good complexity throughout plus a final note of maraschino cherry. This is sleek, balanced, focused and thrillingly elegant with tannins of silk and great length. Enjoy this any time over the next eight to twelve years. Just wow!
