2021 Bindi Quartz Chardonnay Macedon Ranges

From: $115.00

2021 Bindi Quartz Chardonnay 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.

The juice goes to barrel straight from the press tray, with no additions of yeast, nutrients or enzymes. Once the juice is in the barrel a small amount of sulphur is added and then we wait, usually about five days, for the fermentation to begin. The wine spent 10 months on yeast lees in French barrels, of which 25% were new, and was bottled in early March.

The 2021 is a classic Quartz Chardonnay. It is complex, poised and vibrant. There are layers of citrus aromas complemented by spice, cream, wet stones and meal. The palate is very fresh and bright with excellent intensity , balance and drive. These wines begin to drink at their best after five years in bottle and for a decade beyond that. Patience required.
