External Reviews for Lindemans Chardonnay Padthaway
The streak continues! Lindeman's '99 boasts a fresh and enticing floral bouquet, a mouthful of juicy tropical fruit, and their trademark creamy oak and spice finish.
A perennial "best buy," the 1998 is meritorious. The wine's light to medium straw color is accompanied by a delightful bouquet of citrusy, honeyed Chardonnay fruit with no oak in evidence. Crisp, medium-bodied, fresh, and lively, it should be enjoyed over the next 12 months.
Green-gold. Smoky orange. melon and peach aromas are accompanied by deeper hints of honey and spun sugar. Broad and fleshy, with deep orchard and citrus flavors and a late note of floral honey. This is impressively round and rich for the price, and shows good finishing fruit and persistence. I've had plenty of $50 Chardonnays that are less satisfying than this wine.
Early vintages of this were great values, and the 2006 version is a solid effort as well, offering up aromas of smoky, grilled fruit and toasted marshmallow. It's medium-bodied, with spicy, orangey flavors that fall away quickly on the finish. Drink now.
Deep gold in color, with nut, peach and overt floral aromas. Bright and tropical on the palate, with a soft, almost oily feel; shows its alcohol on the finish.
Fresh and silky, with pretty pear and spice flavors, finishing smooth. Drink now.
This recommendation is more of a reader reminder than breaking news, because the Bin 65 has been Australia's hallmark value-priced white since 1985. But it is still a reliable, inexpensive choice as well as Australia's most-exported white wine. Bouncy yellow fruit on the palate is accented by spicy, gingery notes that seem a little grown-up for a wine of this price. Fat, ripe nectarines and peaches, plus some nutmeg and cream, waft from the nose. the 2002 Bin 65 Cab (85 points, $8) is also a great buy.

Colour Pale straw with green hues. Nose The nose shows orchard fruit aromas of white peach and red apple. Stone fruit notes and hints of integrated spicy oak play a supportive role.
