The ‘Stephanie’ vineyard is a small block of vines adjacent to the winery on Stelzer Road, planted in 1996 and named after Rolf’s eldest child and the first grandchild of Rolf and Franziska Binder.
This vineyard has consistently produced extremely high quality fruit that is typically used in our premium Bull’s Blood Shiraz Mataro wine. In exceptional vintages, like that of 2015, some of the fruit is also designated for a single vineyard wine – the Stephanie Shiraz.
The wine is a classic Binder Barossa Shiraz – with robust fruit flavours and smooth tannins that give a lovely mouthfeel.
Aged in 60% new American oak and 40% older French oak barrels, the wine is an excellent choice for cellaring 5-10 years.
