Bindi Dixon Pinot Noir

Bindi is currently releasing its new 'entry level' wines, so I thought it would be good to see how one of them has developed over time.

The Dixon used to be the Composition Vineyard Pinot Noir. How is the 2014 Bindi Dixon Pinot Noir drinking now? In short, extremely well.

The colour of the wine is still red, with medium depth. A beautiful aroma of forest fruits lifts out of the glass. This is sophisticated!

Dark cherry fruit flavours kick off the tasting experience, but then savoury and mushroom notes take over. This is a medium-bodied wine, still quite delicate and very elegant. The fruit profile is not too complex, but the texture is very balanced and subtle. There is enough intensity in this wine, and the finish is smooth.

This wine is clearly better now than on release, and has many good years in front of it.

Score: 94/+++
