This wine is one of the more commercial offerings from the Bindi team. The 2019 Dixon Pinot Noir is produced from a mixture of declassified grapes from the Original Vineyard, planted in 1988, and grapes from the new Block K, planted in 2001.
With its creation, Dhillion wanted to create a perfumed, spicy and harmonious wine that, while textured, was not as intense or age-worthy as the individual block wines.
We’re happy to report he managed just that.
It’s a forward and obvious wine but inviting and delicious. Chock full of dark cherry, kirsch, bay leaf and anise, layered with light clove and cedar character and feeling proud, full and generous. It sits on the palate with generosity but freshness, slick texture, a fresh, minerally, cool finish with a roll of chompy tannin. It feels prouder and bolder than most Bindi wines, but it finds easy communion with pleasure. 94 Points The Wine Front
