2020 Pyrette Heathcote Shiraz
Produced by Bindi Wines from the highest block of a low-yielding Colbinabbin vineyard on the Mount Camel Range in Heathcote. The wine is fermented in 1000L vats and matured in French Oak for one year.
Notes from Producer....
This project now goes back two decades, to 2001. The seasonal stamp is always there, these are not formulaic wines scrubbed and rubbed into an overriding house style, for the harvest date and winemaking is focused in ensuring a balanced wine that shows the markings of the year. (As James Halliday says, a Pinot Noir winemaker's Shiraz!). The 2020 is a delicious and harmonious continuation of the style showing complex dark fruits, earth, spice and graphite. The palate is initially supple and fleshy then builds intensity for a long and balanced finish. It will become more complex and textured over the next six years.
