    Located in the Macedon Ranges, 50 kilometers northwest of Melbourne, Bindi is a family property owned by the Dhillon family. Originally part of the larger grazing farm 'Bundaleer,' Bindi is a 170-hectare farm with 7 hectares dedicated to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The property also includes 15 hectares of managed plantation eucalypts for high-grade furniture timber, while the remaining land is preserved as remnant bushland and important indigenous grasslands. At Bindi, the vineyard is the primary focus of their endeavours. The winemaking philosophy is centred around seeking balance and purity in the expression of the various individual vineyard sites and this philosophy is applied to farming and conservation at Bindi to preserve natural harmony. The Bindi labels featured under the 'wine styles' link provide insight into the people and places that define their endeavour. The stories behind each label showcase the passion and dedication that goes into producing exceptional wines that reflect the unique terroir of the Macedon Ranges. With a commitment to balance, purity, and conservation, Bindi is a true reflection of the Dhillon family's love for the land and their craft.

    Michael Dhillon comes from a family with roots in Gisborne since 1853 and grew up on a farm in Bindi. He established a vineyard with Bill Dhillon in 1988 and now produces chardonnay and pinot with his family. Michael's winemaking journey began as an assistant to Stuart Anderson in 1991 and he assumed full responsibility in 1998. He gained experience in Europe, working with notable winemakers and visiting over 100 different domaines in Burgundy. Michael's connection to the land and experience have led him to produce exceptional wines.

    At Bindi, the winemaking process is carefully controlled to produce exceptional wines. Fermentations occur without the addition of yeast, yeast nutrient, or enzyme, allowing the natural flavors of the grapes to shine through. Unsettled Chardonnay juice is transferred directly to barrels, while reds are gently worked with delicate pressing and long lees aging in French barrels. The winemakers follow strict protocols with minimal racking, no fining and restricted filtration regimes to preserve the purity and integrity of the wine. These meticulous practices result in wines that are a true reflection of the terroir and the passion of the winemakers.

    Henry Redd Dixon arrived in Gisborne in 1853, and his family has maintained a connection with the town to this day. From paymaster of the railway to real estate and farming, the Dixon family has had a significant presence in the growing community. Today, they continue their legacy with winemaking at the Bindi estate. The Bindi estate is home to various blocks of vineyards with varying ages and soil profiles. This wine is estate-grown at Bindi, made up of fruit from these different blocks. The winemakers carefully select the grapes to create a wine that truly reflects the unique terroir of the Macedon Ranges. With a commitment to quality and a deep connection to the land, the Dixon family continues to produce exceptional wines that honor their heritage and celebrate the beauty of the region.

    The Bindi Dixon Pinot Noir 2022 is a carefully crafted wine that spent 10 months in barrel before being bottled in early March. It is a composition of sections of the original 1988 planting and the 2001 Kaye vineyard, carefully selected to create a wine that truly reflects the unique terroir of the Macedon Ranges. The wine boasts a lifted nose of red and black cherries, wild strawberries, earth and spice. On the palate, it is fresh, supple and builds in texture, with vibrant and intense length. As always, this wine will become more complex, silky and flowing in three plus years, making it even more enjoyable over time. With careful cellaring, it can be enjoyed for a decade or more. With its unique flavor profile and careful aging, this wine is sure to be a favorite among wine enthusiasts.
