Bindi Pyrette Shiraz 2021


From the Colbinabbin Vineyard in Heathcote, the Pyrette Shiraz has long been a favourite for winelovers across the country. Fermentation is in 1,000-litre open vats with wild yeasts, before maturation in French oak barrels, 10% new, for a year. The colour is a violent purple. This wine is still so young but already showing that it has everything in place to transform into the style much loved, especially from such a cracking vintage. The aromatics weave through chocolate, blackberries, cassis and florals. An exuberant, generous style, finely balanced and with a seamless, plush structure. With excellent length, satiny tannins and lots of them, this is a ten year proposition and will improve further over that time. Cracking value.
