Rolf Binder Selection Chardonnay

Rolf Binder Selection Chardonnay

Rolf Binder Selection Chardonnay

With partial oak maturation to enhance the complexity and add a subtle creamy oak character to the wine, Christa has chosen fruit from the Chri-Ro estate vineyard as well as the Riedl vineyard at Vine Vale.
This Chardonnay has the hallmark stone fruit characters balanced by a fresh, acidic backbone.
“Around 80% of the fruit for this wine is aged on lees and not oaked, while the remaining 20% is fermented in new and older French oak barrels for 6 months to add a lovely buttery quality to the final blend.”
– Christa Deans, Winemaker

Christa and Rolf form the heart of Rolf Binder wines, continuing a family wine-making tradition that spans nearly 60 years. Their parents arrived in Australia in 1950 – just two amongst the many post-war immigrants from Europe – and met a grape grower in the Barossa while working to help pay for their assisted passage. From such unlikely beginnings, a passion for the Barossa was born, a winery was purchased and a new life began. They soon came to appreciate the riches of the Barossa, the old vine Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache, and were at the forefront of many old vine varietal blends. Now Christa and Rolf are taking the winery into the 21st century, with Rolf forging a world-wide reputation for his red wines while Christa takes the plaudits for her white wines.

Steeped in Barossa history. Established in 1955.

Rolf Binder Wines are made with the philosophy of only using primarily estate-grown fruit from our own vineyards across the Barossa, combined with traditional viticultural and winemaking techniques. Resulting in a range of highly acclaimed Barossa premium wines.

South Australia

The Barossa Valley is one of the major regions in Australia, where many of the major wine companies are based. It is believed the first vineyards were planted in the 1840s by Silesian migrants (who settled in Bethany). There followed a rapid expansion of plantations. The early styles of wines produced were heavy dry red wines and fortified wines that were popular both domestically and in Britain. After the Second World War the styles shifted to lighter table wines with production of Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The Barossa Valley is home to some very well known names such as Seppelt, Wolf Blass and Penfolds as well as many smaller producers. The climate is Mediterranean with hot dry summers and cool wet winters, making it ideal for viticulture. The main wine styles: White – Semillon, Riesling, Chardonnay, Semillon-Chardonnay blend; Red – Shiraz (full bodied & ripe) with Old Vine Shiraz a speciality of many vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Shiraz-Grenache-Mataro blend, Cabernet-Merlot blend.
