Lindemans Merlot Bin 40 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Bright crimson red with a ruby rim. Nose: Red and blackberry aromas merge with touches of spice, vanilla and more chocolatey, earthy notes. Palate: 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, one of Australiarsquo;s most successful exporters, is well known for creating varietally true, inexpensive chardonnay in its Bin 65. And although Australia is not known for merlot, Lindemans has set out to change that with its new Bin 40. The wine is simple, smooth and light in the mouth, with enough of the soft, chocolatey richness and herbal elements to define it as merlot. A versatile red.

Pleasant, fruity style has a nice core of currant and cherry flavor that echoes nicely on the open-textured finish. Drink now.

A bright crimson red color moving towards plum, with distinct pinkish edges.The generous nose is built on a core of ripe, sweet fruits with distinctly savoury elements of leaf and spice. Subtle oak characters add depth and complexity to an otherwise fruit driven nose. A medium bodied palate is defined by abundantly ripe plum fruit, a touch of earth and trademark Merlot spice. The wine is smooth and supple, very much in the keeping with the modern style of Merlot. Silky smooth tannins provide structure, aided by the slightest hint of oak on the finish.

Soft and rich in plum and berry flavors with hints of oak, giving balance and a long finish.

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.

Mildly tarry, herbal, spicy nose. Firm, elegant, racy, lean and somewhat tight.

A light-bodied merlot, with pure berry flavors touched by dry tannins in the finish, this would make a good choice for casual suppers.
