Rolf Binder Barossa Shiraz
Barossa

A backbone of Christa Rolf and Heinrich vineyards Shiraz, assembled alongside five choice Barossa parcels, embellished by the inclusion of estate grown Mourvedre and Grenache. All batches are crushed as one, pumped over and traditionally worked throughout the course of open ferments, followed by a year in American and French oak hogsheads. Blood red, bramble berries and dark bitter chocolate, pepper and anise, seamless and sound, its generously proportioned palate, exquisitely balanced over a languid length of creamy, velvet tannins.

Barossa

An enduring cult wine, originally vintaged in the 1960s, still hand crafted in small batches, from priceless pressings of century old Mourvedre bush vines. Veritas was a quaint but salubrious wineworks at Tanunda along Langmeil Road, The Rolf Binder headquartes for a half century, Veritas sired many of the Barossa's most memorable vintages. A judicious inclusion of estate Shiraz to the ancient bush vine Mourvedre contributes essential peppery spice, the affable earthyness of Barossa melty chocolate, plush tannin ripeness and sweet fleshy plum.

Rolf Binder Hanisch Shiraz
Barossa
Available in cases of 6
A rare and exclusive regional flagship, by one of the most peer respected winemakers in all Barossa Valley. Hanisch is nothing short of spectacular, harvested off the same rows of superior vine each year, its precious ferment of ten or so barrels, yielding just 250 dozen bottles of vintage. The superlative site was acquired from Punch Hanisch and added to Veritas Vineyard in 1968. The parcel was planted to vines by Binder father and son in 1972. By the mid 1980s, it was recognized that a small block of several long rows made an incredible Shiraz wine.

Deep cherry black in colour. Dulcetly fragrant, delicately perfumed, enchanting aromas of tradewind, textiles and old spice, meaty savouryness, the tang of dark cherries and ripeness of plum. Complex flavours unravel, a deeply layered, seductive, solidly structured, full bodied Shiraz, seamlessly framed by stealthy tannins and a cosset of suave new oak. A mouthcoating finish as Hanisch lingers on a length of concentration, opulence and finesse.
Rolf Binder Heinrich SMG
Barossa
Available by the dozen
Half Shiraz from the estate Stephanie vineyard, just adjacent the Rolf Binder wineworks. A third of Mourvedre, picked off a precious block of bush vine planted in the 1880s. The balance in Grenache from old Binder vines at Gomersal and Light Pass. A moreish medley of blue bramble, raspberries and chocolate box allsorts, underpinned by the savoury of smoked meats and simmering stockpot. Open fermented in the traditional old world style to deliciously dry, a salutory measure of subtle oak and kindly tannins in support of a lingering, chewy liquorice finish.

Rolf Binder RHB Reserve Shiraz
Barossa
Available in cartons of six
Rolf Binder's story begins in 1950 when his parents arrived from Austria and Hungary, part of the large influx of post war immigration. They worked the Victorian railways for three years and picked grapes in the Barossa, before acquiring an old winery on Langmeil Road in 1955. RHB is made in the way that Rolf's father enjoyed his wine, full bodied, opulent, the old world style of Aussie claret with solid tannins in support of powerful fruit. An extravagant two year term in French and American oak hogsheads, integrates RHB into a whole that's so much greater than the sum of parts.

Magpie Estate is a joint venture which began in 1993, between winemaker Rolf Binder and English wine merchant Noel Young

Rolf's story begins in 1950 when his parents arrived from Austria and Hungary, part of the large influx of post war immigration to Australia. They worked with the Victorian railways for three years. During that time they met Elmore Schulz a train driver and a grape grower in the Barossa Valley. In 1953 they picked grapes in the Barossa, met Chris Vohrer and Wilhem Abel and in 1954 worked a vintage in their winery. This is the old winery on Langmeil Road, which they purchased in 1955.

Rolf Binder

The demand at this time was for fortified wines but slowly a market increased for red table wines from immigrants working at the new industries in Whyalla, Port Pirie and Port Augusta. Highlights include the first of the Bulls Blood which was made in 1967 and was called 'Bikaver'. Later came the realization of the great riches of the Barossa Valley in old vine shiraz, mataro and grenache. Experiments at Veritas and a number of other, mostly small Barossa wineries followed and led through the 1980's to the release of many exciting old vine varietal blends.

Veritas slowly gained recognition and in 1996 and 1997 was awarded the Trophy for Best Small Producer at the Barossa Wine Show and the Trophy for the Best Barossa Shiraz. In 2002 Veritas again won the Trophy for the Best Small Producer. More recently Veritas has been awarded twice in 2002 and 2003 the Trophy for the Best Semillon at the Barossa Wine Show. In 2002 Veritas were the makers of the top three pointed semillons at the Barossa Show and included the gold medal and trophy winning wine.

"2003 Rolf Binder Wines Grenache / Mourvedre / Shiraz Heinrich. From one of Australia’s finest winemakers, this wine stood out brilliantly for its precision, richness, complexity, and ageworthiness. In addition, some very good bargains are available from this talented producer!" -Robert Parker, "The change of name from Veritas to Rolf Binder came with the 50th anniversary of the winery, established by Rolf's and sister Christa Deans' parents. The growth in production and sales is due to the quality of the wines rather than the (hitherto) rather laid-back approach to marketing!" -James Halliday

Wine merchant Noel Young is based in Cambridge U.K. and holds a real passion for the Rhone varieties that matched Rolf's own. Most of the Magpie Estate's production are released into the English market with smaller parcels kept for Australia. The grapes used for Magpie wines are from spme of the better vineyards in South Australia as well as the estate's own. Noel likes more new oak than you would find in Rolf Binder's estate grown Veritas wines, and he takes the trip to Australia twice per year so that he and Rolf together can taste the various parcels of wine and agree on final blends for bottling.

The Magpie expression changes from label to label and this is done to poke fun at wine pretension. The range can vary from vintage to vintage and the following wines have been made over the last few years.

  • Magpie Estate ‘The Thief’ Barossa Valley Mourvedre Grenache. The mouvedre (mataro) in the Veritas Bulls Blood is made from the heavy grape skin mat left over after the ‘free run’ juice is run off. Some of this juice which is light in colour, like a rose, but high in alcohol goes into ‘The Thief’. The Grenache can have a number of sources. The blend percentage varies but is around 50%-50%.
  • Magpie Estate ‘The Schnell’ Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz. Sourced from a wide number of growers and in the case of the 2003 this numbered eight. A delicious early drinking style and while the varietal percentage will vary it is about 50%-50%.
  • Magpie Estate ‘The Fakir’ Barossa Valley Grenache. Sourced from a number of vineyards for the first few years but is now mostly sourced from James Mader vineyard that lies on the valley floor at Light Pass in the Northern Barossa Valley. The winemaking team at Magpie Estate like to keep their options open about the final blend.
  • Magpie Estate ‘The Sack’ Barossa Valley Shiraz. A wine designed to cellar. Sourced from many growers, a tonne here and a tonne there, from old school friends and a circle of closely knit growers.
