Lindemans Merlot Bin 40 2008
The Lindeman's Bin Series wines are made with fruit sourced from key grape-growing regions in Australia. This ability of Lindeman's to source and blend wines from different regions produces wine of a consistently outstanding quality regardless of varying vintage conditions. The generous flavours and contemporary, easy-drinking style of Lindeman's Bin 40 Merlot combines easily with food, family and friends. The nose shows red and blackberry aromas, which merge with touches of spice, vanilla and more chocolatey, earthy notes. This is a soft and elegant, medium bodied Merlot with delicious red berry flavours that are supported by darker, earthier tones. Maturation with oak adds a creamy, almost nutty complexity to the long, soft finish.
LINDEMANS® wines promise more than the partnering of quality grapes and craftsmanship. Every wine also contains the spirit and passion of our founder - Dr Henry J Lindeman.
External Reviews for Lindemans Merlot Bin 40
Mildly tarry, herbal, spicy nose. Firm, elegant, racy, lean and somewhat tight.
Bright and juicy, with dark berry and peppery flavors and a touch of cedar on the finish. Drink now.
Earthy, gamy flavors dominate the ripe fruit in this broad-textured, different sort of Merlot. Ends up being appealing.
Attention Merlot fans: Check out this reasonably priced version, supple and appealing for its minty cherry flavors that linger gently on the finish. Enjoyable now through 2000.
Berry and cherry flavors dominate this medium-bodied Merlot. Hints of tea with sweet oak and fresh raspberry emerge on the mid palate. The finish is soft and sweet with mild tannins.
