Food Pairings for Lindemans Shiraz South Africa
I was quite impressed with this Shiraz/Syrah. The last bottle of shiraz I had was an '05 Banrock Station that was just too tannic, but Lindemans is much softer on the palette while still being robust and fruity with a bit of spice to it. Went well, at least I thought it did, with a dinner of grilled lentil patties and sautéed pumpkin and apples with maple syrup. For $5.99 (USD), a good pick, to be sure.

Supple and generous with its blackberry and cherry flavors, shaded with black olive and pepper as the finish persists. Drink now through 2010.
Lithe, smooth and polished, with pretty blackberry and sweet leather flavors, finishing with a floral note. Drink now through 2008.
Smooth and round, generous with its plum and berry flavors, finishing with a spicy, slightly pruny note. Drink now.
Light and tangy, with fresh blackberry and lime flavors, lingering tartly. Drink now.
Sweet cherry flavors make this a light, peppery red for barbequed meats.
On the light side, this refreshing red exhibits ripe cherry and spice flavors, finishing with open texture. 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.
Lindemans is one of the most respected and enduring Australian winemakers, crafting quality wine since 1843. It is a result of these many years of experience that Lindemans winemakers know which is the ideal region to bring out the best from each grape variety. They reserve the finest of this fruit to craft this Reserve Range. To create this full flavored Lindemans Reserve Padthaway Shiraz, the winemakers have blended premium wine from Padthaway, South Australia, a region long recognized as having the perfect climate for producing fine and elegant Shiraz. The result is a wine that truly expresses its grape variety and regional origins, a profound drinking experience that is perfect for every occasion. Overall the 2005 vintage was slightly warmer than usual with good winter rainfall that continued through into the spring. Despite some cold snaps in February, warm and mild conditions lead up to and continued during vintage. The resulting crops were of good to excellent quality producing elegant, well structured Shiraz. This wine was matured for 12 months with American oak. Deep purple with crimson hues. The nose shows aromas of black pepper, mullberry and raspberry with hints of vanillin/chocolate oak. A medium bodied wine, showing generous, sweet mulberry fruit and vanillin oak. The finish has fine tannins and a great length of fruit flavor.
