Bindi Macedon Ranges Composition Pinot Noir 2011
I will be heading up the Calder Freeway again this Saturday to join the bottling line for the Bindi Original Vineyard, Quartz and Block 5 wines - 16th bottling and counting - so I thought I would revisit the February bottling of the Bindi Macedon Ranges Composition Pinot Noir 2011.
A lot more restrained and feminate that its 2010 sibling, this wine at such a young age starts singing as soon as I decant and pour. Delicate floral notes of violet with a lick of spice on the nose, the wine in the glass just keeps going and going with with soft tart red fruit, cranberry the standout, washing over the taste buds.
This is one of the first Composition Pinot Noirs that I would had that in a blind tasting would pass as Burgundy, and not just village or VDP, but Premier Cru also.
