#WineWednesday is all about celebrating great wine from around the world and every week we pick out a wine or range to talk about and today it is all about the George Wyndham Bin Range.
George Wyndham an English man who was bold, determined and resourceful. He knew his own mind. He emigrated to Sydney, Australia in the early 1800's and with vision and courage and pioneered Australian Shiraz. George then went on to plant his first commercial vineyard in 1830 and created a distinctly rich, robust wine style. It was the wine he wanted to drink, and he knew others would love too. That's why this wine bears his name. This is his wine.
The BIN range is the flagship brand in the Wyndham Estate portfolio. These high quality wines reflect the full, intense fruit style for which Wyndham Estate is famous. Careful attention is taken to ensure that only the best grapes are selected to provide this award winning range of wines. Check out our range below.
Bin 888 captures the best of two great Australian wine varieties, the generous plum flavours and soft tannins of Merlot adding further depth to the classic rich blackberry flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon. Subtle use of French oak brings it all together. Enjoy with beef, lamb or any taste of the Mediterranean.
George Wyndham Bin 222 Chardonnay
Brilliant pale straw in colour this wine is generously flavoured with a creamy texture that is held together with soft acidity. All components of the wine are cleverly meshed together so no one element dominates. The wine has an obvious presence by combining fruit intensity, oak aging, and malolactic fermentation for a modern twist on a classic style. Enjoyed best with chicken or seafood dishes.
Bin 444 captures the essence if Australian Cabernet Sauvignon, with its rich, generous flavours of ripe blackcurrant, red berry fruits and plums enhanced by the subtle use of French oak. It is equally at home with barbecued steak, lamb duck, cheese and even chocolate desserts. Try it.
One of the provinces favourite Shiraz. Deep crimson red with vibrant purple hues. A rich full-bodied wine with lifted aromas of plum and blackberry supported by a subtle spicy oak. The wine is soft and generous on the mid-palate with fine tannins and balanced with subtle oak nuances all of which contribute to a finish of good persistence. Perfect complement to steak and is also well suited to other red meats, pizza, tomato based pasta dishes and hearty casseroles.
Bin 333 showcases modern Pinot Noir Australian style, with its ripe cherry flsvours, hints of fresh raspberry and savoury spice. It is a complex and versatile wine that is equally at home with chicken, lamb, veal or salmon and will complement both Mediterrranean cuisine and mildly spiced Asian dishes.
