2020 Bindi Kaye Pinot Noir Macedon Ranges

From: $115.00

2020 Bindi Kaye Pinot Noir Macedon Ranges – ‘Bindi’, 50 kilometres north-west of Melbourne in the Macedon Ranges, is the family property of the Dhillon family. Originally purchased in the 1950s as part of the larger grazing farm ‘Bundaleer’, ‘Bindi’ is a 170 hectare farm of which 7 hectares are planted to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Fifteen hectares are dedicated to managed plantation eucalypts for high grade furniture timber whilst the remainder of the land is maintained as remnant bush land and important indigenous grasslands.

The Bindi vineyard is the fundamental focus of their endeavors. Their vineyard and winemaking philosophy is to seek balance and purity in the expression of their various individual vineyard sites and this philosophy is applied to farming and conservation at ‘Bindi’; the preservation of the natural harmony.

This is a very sentimental wine from Bindi’s most elevated vineyard, planted in 2001, that pays tribute to their mother, Kaye. It’s a vineyard with a stunning perspective over the other vineyards, the winery, house and to the forests and hills beyond. There are some lovely metaphors, no doubt. The site has a lot of quartz and mudstone, a smattering of volcanic soils that have eroded down from the volcanic plateau above, and produces a wine of fragrance, structure and complexity.

The 2020 Kaye has weight and complexity beyond its vintage. It is typically spicy and shows lifted rose petal aromas with the usual savoury cherry edge. The palate has fine layers of creamy fruit depth and is driven by fine, gently chewy tannin and fresh acidity. It will begin to drink near its best in four years time and be in its best zone for a decade after that.
