2008 Bindi Original Vineyard Pinot Noir (Macedon)

When I first tried this wine a few years back it stood out as one of the best Pinot Noirs I had had. Trying it at five years of age just recently, and having had plenty of impressive Pinot in the interim, my view on this wine hasn't changed.

This is just a beautiful Pinot to smell. So perfumed, it reveal aromas of strawberries, dark cherries, cinnamon, and ginger. Once you've had your fill of the bouquet you'll find pitch perfect balance on the palate between generosity and elegance. All those lovely flavours are restrained and framed by fine acidity and tannins. A hint of stalkiness and an appealing note of orange peel add further complexity, before it finishes with great length and purpose.

Great now, and possibly even better in another 5 years time. Luckily I have another bottle left in the cellar.
