2018 CHARDONNAY, Rolf Binder. Barossa, South Australia

Bin:  270

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

Warm climate Barossa Valley is renowned above all for big, rich Shiraz, so all the more surprising that it can make white wines with freshness and balance.
“The fruit for this wine comes from two separate estates. The vineyard on Stelzer Road features gravelly loam vineyards with some patches of sandy loam. The other source is our ‘Riedl’ vineyard at Vine Vale which comprises of light sand over clay.”

Grape variety:

100% Chardonnay, fermented cool and matured for 8 months on its lees, mainly in steel tanks but a proportion in French oak puncheons (500 litre barrels).

Producer:

From their website:
“Rolf Binder and sister Christa Deans, produce a range of highly acclaimed Barossa premium wines using fruit from their own estate and other Barossa vineyards. Rolf focuses on red winemaking, for which he has received international accolades, and Christa is recognised as one of the region’s finest white winemakers.”
Their parents arrived from Austria and started making wine in the 1950s. The family now have over 200 hectares of their own vineyards.
Rolf also combines with Noel Young (wine merchant in Cambridge) to make the Magpie Estate wines, which we often sell as well.

Old Bridge rating:

Classic new world Chardonnay, in the best sense. Plenty of richness, a touch of oak – a really ‘satisfying’ glass of wine.
