Overview

The ‘Heinrich’ is a tribute wine to Rolf and Christa’s father, Rolf Heinrich Binder as he loved to work with these three great Barossa varietals – Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache. Rolf continues that legacy with this classic blend and rates it as one of his favourite wines to make. It’s more common to see a GSM blend in the Barossa, but Rolf believes that Shiraz is our best asset, so why not lead with your best? The blend ratio is typically in the range of 50/30/20.

This is an estate wine with the Shiraz and Mataro grapes grown in the Stephanie vineyard, adjacent to the winery. The Grenache is sourced from the estate vineyard on the Western Ridge at Gomersal, planted in the early 1950s as well as some Grenache from the Binder Deans Light Pass vineyard.

Expert Reviews

“Medium red-purple; no more than medium-bodied, but has a brightness to the blend over and above many such from the Barossa Valley; juicy red fruits and balanced acidity draw saliva from the mouth, and lengthen the finish. A very good wine. Drink to 2025. 94 points, James Halliday Wine Companion 2016

Winery Tasting Notes

Each variety adds its individual talents with nuances of chocolate, raspberry, beef stockpot and a berry fruit sweetness. The finish is dry and the flavours linger on the palate with subtle oak and tannin adding to the fruit characters creating a full and comprehensive wine that will drink well now, but also benefit from 5-10 years cellaring.
