Bindi Composition Chardonnay 2005

91 points

Victoria, Australia. 13.5%

There are chardonnays that taste of ripe fruit (and the sunny vineyard location, some that taste of pulp and skin contact, some that taste of winemaking (oak, lees), and some like this that taste of the soil – or rather rocks.A ripe wine with mineral flavours and racy acidity. Certainly not ‘run of the mill’. Complex, with identifiable individual components, yet it is drinking well now (and over the next 5 years).A reminder of the breadth in styles of Australian chardonnay today.
