Bindi Dhillon Col Mountain Grenache 2023

This Grenache rosé from Heathcote undergoes gentle pressing with a few hours of skin contact, followed by spontaneous fermentation in old French barrels without added yeast. After maturing on lees for five months, it emerges delicately colored with aromas of roses, red currant, and cranberry. The palate is fresh, smooth, and dry, offering a balanced texture and flavor profile that's neither overpowering nor lacking. Crafting this wine involves crucial decisions such as harvest timing, pressing methods, barrel selection, lees contact duration, and malolactic fermentation considerations, ensuring it's ideal for enjoying during the upcoming summer months.

Bindi's farm spans 170 hectares, yet only 7 hectares are dedicated to vines—a testament to the Dhillon family's profound care and reverence for their land, heritage, and future sustainability. Their home vineyard exclusively cultivates two varieties: pinot noir and chardonnay, renowned for their exceptional quality. Bindi has consistently ranked among Australia's top-tier wineries since its first plantings in 1988. While maintaining high quality across their entire range, Block 5 pinot noir stands out as the crown jewel of Bindi. The recent addition of high-density pinot noir plantings in 2014 and 2016 promises to further elevate their prestige.
