Bindi Kostas Rind Chardonnay 2021
The 2021 vintage release of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Bindi is perhaps the most thrilling collection of wines seen from any winery so far this year. This Chardonnay comes from a 1.5 hectare plot with the fruit fermented by wild yeasts in French oak, 20% new. The wine spends time in barrel on yeast lees before racking and then further maturation. This is a lovely shade of deep lemon. The nose is immediately and obviously showing early complexity with stonefruit, guava, grapefruit and immaculate oak integration. Impeccably balanced with a fine line of acidity, there is real energy here and such length with some oatmeal characters on the palate. A fine-boned, tight-knit Chardonnay which will provide great pleasure over the next eight to ten years and improve even further while doing so.
