The first vines on Bindi vineyard were planted in 1988 by vigneron Michael Dhillon and his father Bill. The family farm, purchased in the 1950s in the Macedon Ranges, today plays home to some of the country’s most precious Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines.

A deep connection to family and place underpins everything that vigneron Michael Dhillon does. His fastidious vineyard management and precision in the winery has seen his label rise over the years as some of the leading examples of Australian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, setting a new benchmark for all Australian producers to strive for.

The wines of Bindi have been heralded the world over for their rare power and clarity. They now find pride of place in some of the world’s most discerning cellars. These are collectable, cellar-worthy wines that showcase the unique character of one of Australia’s great vineyard sites.

Tasting Notes

96 Points Mike Bennie
This is great pinot noir. Silky, satiny, sumptuous but bright, held in its sheath by tat-work of lacy tannins. A sense of purity, fresh fruit, gently sweet, a nibble of bright acidity and pleasing bitterness, cool flow, exceptional length and such a delightful, gentle flow of all this. It tastes refreshing, in a way, or gives off a sense of that feeling. Effortless and straight up delicious, with plenty of architecture, particularly in the sense of smooth rock and slate-like minerality embedded in the subtle fruit characters of the wine. This is pure class, pure feeling, wonderful drinking, sparks imagination and calls you back to the glass in pursuit of all these things. Or so I say. It’s a wine for lovers of fine things, no doubt, and delivers a top flight pinot experience.
