“One of the icons” says James Halliday. And so it is. Established in 1988 – just after Lake House first opened its doors; Bindi is now renowned as one of the best wineries in Australia serving up top shelf chardonnay and remarkable pinot noir. 50 kilometres north-west of Melbourne in the Macedon Ranges, it is the family property of the Dhillon family. Originally purchased in the 1950s as part of the larger grazing farm ‘Bundaleer’, ‘Bindi’ is a 170-hectare farm of which 7 hectares are planted to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
The Bindi vineyard is the fundamental focus. The vineyard and winemaking philosophy is to seek balance and purity of expression in the various individual vineyard sites and this philosophy is applied to farming and conservation at ‘Bindi’; the preservation of the natural harmony.
Winemaker Michael Dhillon’s blog reads as a poetic ode to the land, vines and wines is just one of the reasons we cherish this very special relationship. The fact that they have been supplying wine to us since day 1 when it was his father at the helm is another.
If you’ve tried and failed to get your hands on the Block 5 Pinot Noir you’re not alone; the cult wine has a strong following as does the Quartz Chardonnay and Original Vineyard.
