Lindemans Shiraz Bin 50 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate #137 (Oct 2001) The monumental 1999 Vigna d'Alceo is a 20,000-bottle cuvee of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Sangiovese aged in oak. It boasts an exceptionally provocative nose of liquid minerals, graphite, plums, creme de cassis, and cherry liqueur. It is fabulously concentrated yet remarkably light on its feet, with medium to full body, sweet tannin, and layer upon layer of flavor nuances. There is plenty of glycerin in this rich, but neither heavy nor overbearing effort. This is a thrilling tour de force! However, it requires cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025. Bravo! These were RP's comments on the 99 vintage and although the '03 may not garner 99 points, it is one of the finest vintages the estate has produced

This wine is crimson red in color and shows excellent depth. Aromatic with notes of blueberry and blackberry along with rich stewed plum are balanced with integrated vanillin oak. A vibrant fruit driven style shiraz, which shows soft fruit flavors and a touch of licorice and spice. Careful oak maturation adds structure and integrates balanced tannins with a subtle savory oak finish.

Die Farbe ist von einem strahlenden intensiven Rot. Volle Kirschen und Maulbeeraromen werden unterstützt von weichen, leicht würzigen Eichennoten. Im Gaumen wird dieser beerige, an Kirschen erinnernde Geschmack noch genussvoll verstärkt. Im Abgang verbirgt sich ein Touch von Würze, begleitet von feinen Tanninen und ausgeglichener Säure. An diesem Shiraz kann man sich sofort erfreuen, seinen attraktiven Fruchtcharakter wird er jedoch erst nach einigen Jahren sorgfältiger Lagerung so richtig preisgeben.
