About This Wine

The Heinrich is named after Rolf Heinrich Binder, founder of the family winery. Rolf Binder Junior created this wine as a tribute to his father who dearly loved the blend of Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache. This is an estate wine with the shiraz coming from the Stephanie vineyard and the mataro from the Chri-Ro vineyard planted in 1972, both of which adjoin the winery. The Grenache is sourced from a Western Ridge vineyard at Gomersal, planted in the early 1950s.

Barossa Valley Wine

The Barossa Valley wine region has historically and currently still is one of Australia's most prestigious premium wine producing regions. Located just 60km north east of Adelaide city centre, the climate there is very hot and dry which is perfect for the big bold reds the area is famous for.

A straight Shiraz is what Barossa is most well known for, however Rhone blends, such as Shiraz Cabernet are also very popular. While much less prevalent, white wines (Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon) are planted on the higher altitude hillsides where the ocean breeze cools temperatures down to a level suitable for producing these varieties as well.

Some of Australia's earliest Shiraz plantings can be found here dating as far back as the 1850's. While not always a guarantee of quality, it might be worth seeking out and trying one of the region's "old vine shiraz" if you haven't yet.

The Wine Front – The more Grenache and Mataro added to Barossa Shiraz, the better, or at least it is to my way of thinking. Nutty, spicy, dusty, mint and toast, coconut too, blackberry and raspberry. Medium to full-bodied, coal and toasted spices, supple, with fresh acidity, and a salty finish of fair length.
