A good bit of spice and lots of plums.
Our "go to" wine for drinking at home with dinner... Really nice
Inexpensive ($5.49), everyday wine. Purple color and the aromas are full of plum and cherry.The flavors include plum, red berry, with a bit of oak. The taste is slightly sweet with hint of spice. It has a moderate amount of acidity which balances nicely with the sweetness.
Thin, and a bit grapey with a narrow band of prune-like fruit and an acid burst. Not the best Lindemans' shiraz.
Of all the least expensive Australian shiraz wines, this one seems to have the best body (although still a little on the weak side). It lingers fairly well, with hints of plum, berries, and a little spice. A vibrant fruit driven style shiraz, which shows soft fruit flavors and a touch of liquorice and spice. Careful oak maturation adds structure and integrates balanced tannins with a subtle savory oak finish. Definitely a best-buy as purchased at Safeway for $6 (as a 6 pack).
We tried this wine last night with some spicy pasta in red sauce. What a delight this wine is. Great full bodied flavor and an outstanding price. Picked up 6 more bottles today. This may be the new house red! Try this selection and enjoy!
External Reviews for Lindemans Shiraz Bin 50
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.
The generous flavours and contemporary, easy-drinking style of Lindemans Bin 50 Shiraz combines easily with food and most social occasions to deliver maximum enjoyment from the first glass to the last
On the light side, this refreshing red exhibits ripe cherry and spice flavors, finishing with open texture. Drink now.
Smooth and round, generous with its plum and berry flavors, finishing with a spicy, slightly pruny note. Drink now.
Firm in texture, and fleshy enough to put some padding around the blackberry, pepper and vaguely meaty flavors. Finishes fine. Drink now through 2004.
Sweet cherry flavors make this a light, peppery red for barbequed meats.
Light and tangy, with fresh blackberry and lime flavors, lingering tartly. Drink now.
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
