Rolf Binder – Heinrich Shiraz Mataro Grenache 2016

DKK 185,00

Rolf Binder – Heinrich Shiraz Mataro Grenache 2016

‘Heinrich’ er en hyldestvin til Rolf og Christas far, Rolf Heinrich Binder, da han elskede at arbejde med disse tre store Barossasorter – Shiraz, Mataro og Grenache. Rolf fortsætter arven med denne klassiske blanding og vurderer selv, at det er en af hans foretrukne vine at fremstille. Det er mere almindeligt at se en GSM-blanding i Barossa, men Rolf mener, at Shiraz er deres bedste aktiv, så hvorfor ikke bruge det bedste? Blandingsforholdet er typisk ca. Shiraz 50%, Mataro 30%, Grenache 20%.

Hver drue bidrager med sine unikke egenskaber, og det giver nuancer af chokolade, hindbær, oksefond samt en god bærsødme. Resultatet er en tør vin med en god eftersmag, der også har karakter af eg og garvesyre, så man står tilbage med en fyldig og kompleks vin. Den kan sagtens drikkes nu, men tager heller ikke skade af at ligge i op til 10 år.

Tasting Note

Rolf Binder, formerly known as Veritas, was established in the heart of the Barossa Valley in 1955 by Rolf Heinrich Binder. The winery tradition is now continued by the second generation of Binders, Rolf and Christa, as brother and sister winemakers. For more than 25 years, the siblings have produced a range of highly acclaimed wines from their estate and other premium Barossa vineyards.

THE VINTAGE:
The 2015/16 growing season started in the middle of a dry year in the Barossa. Rainfall was down and the resulting drier soils, combined with a warmer than average spring and early summer meant the vines got away at a cracking pace. January was less extreme than in previous years but without rain for most of the month, the grapes kept ripening quickly. Up to 30mm of rain fell in the last days of January, providing welcome refreshment for vines. Despite the challenges of the dry season, most vineyards ripened evenly and completely. The result overall was good but lower yields, with great flavours and colours (in reds) and surprisingly good natural acids.

THE VINEYARDS:
Fruit for this wine is sourced from various Binder Estate vineyards in different areas of the Barossa. The major component, Shiraz, is a vineyard seleciton, including some fruit from Eden Valley. The Grenache is grown on the Western Ridge and the Mataro is from dry grown, bush vines planted in the 1880s (the Pressings of which are used in our Bull’s Blood wine).

THE WINEMAKING:
Fruit parcels were separately crushed, fermented and aged until final blending and bottling. Vinification occurs in open fermenters with pump overs twice daily. The fermentation was completed in tank, the wines were then racked to barrel. Oak used for the Shiraz was 15% new oak, 45% shaven American and 40% two year old American. For the Grenache, 60% shaven French, 20% shaven American and 30% two year old French. The Mataro was aged in 100% new American oak puncheons. The wine was blended to taste and style, utilising the body and strength of the Shiraz (64%), the ripe confectionary fruit of the Grenache (19%) and the fine earthy tannins of the old vine Mataro (17%).

THE PROFILE:
“The split of 64/19/17 has melded into a harmonious whole with its seasoning of red licorice, pepper and baking spices coating red-black cherry accented fruit. Fresh and lively, yet full-bodied with some new oak adding weight and clove-sweet flavour, not too much, as this has a lot of savoury drive and tannic grip on the finish. Drink to 2024.”
