Lindemans Pinot Noir South Australia 2007
The Lindemans Bin Series wines are made with fruit sourced from key grape growing regions in Australia. This ability of Lindemans to source and blend wines from different regions produces wine of a consistently outstanding quality regardless of varying vintage conditions. The generous flavors and contemporary, easy-drinking of Lindemans Bin 99 Pinot Noir combines easily with food and most social occasions to deliver maximum enjoyment from the first glass to the last. A multi-regional blend with significant portions from the Adelaide Hills and Coonawarra. 2007 was a relatively early vintage, with low rainfall and warm weather contributing to an early budburst and flowering. Mild to warm weather throughout summer helped the fruit to mature well and rains at harvest allowed fruit to ripen well with good varietal character. Parcels of this wine were matured with French and American oak. A complex nose with cherry and strawberry highlights and darker meat jus gamey notes. Medium bodied, soft and elegant. Fresh red berry flavors develop savory, game characters. The finish is balanced with cleansing acidity and a touch of smoky oak.
