Lindemans Red Bordeaux Blend Padthaway Cabernet-Merlot 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

"Colour : A striking dark red colour moving towards purple. Nose : The benefits of blending grape varieties are illustrated handsomely by the expressive, complex nose. The aroma is packed with red berry fruit, chocolate and brambles and supported by a subtle cedar and spice of well-integrated oak. Palate : The palate is characteristically rich and smooth with initial sweet berry and liquorice flavours evolving to highlight savoury Merlot characters and finishing with rounded tannins and subtle oak. Whilst immediately approachable, the fine tannins and palate structure indicate a long cellaring future. Food Matches : Ideally suited to Duck & Game, Lamb, Beef. Peak Drinking : Now - 2013 "

Fresh and bright currants and plums though starting to develop secondaries of leather and cedar notes. Keen focus on the palate with layered curranty notes. Excellent balance with a dash of sweetness that says "New World". Not overly ripe or worked over. An excellent drop that will go on for another 5 years at least.
