Rolf Binder Shiraz Blend Heinrich Vyd. Barossa Valley 2005

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Rolf Binder is a favorite of Robert Parker who calls him “one of Australia’s finest winemakers”. His single vineyard reds routinely score 90 plus point ratings. This GMS blend scored 93 points AND it's on SALE at over 35% off by the case! Don't miss it. Parker said: "The 2005 Heinrich, a blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, and Shiraz (15%, 30%, and 55% respectively), reveals a dark purple hue along with a sweet perfume of crushed rocks, blueberries, creme de cassis, creosote, vanilla, and spice. It is a full, earthy effort to consume over the next 7-8 years."

Rolf Binder Wines:
The vines in the vineyard were pruned and trellised in November (Spring), and their long shoots needed to be trained along the trellis. This was a vigorous growing time for the vines, and leading up to this vintage, we saw some of them already producing the small bunches of inflorescences (flowers) that will eventually become fruit.
