Lindemans Shiraz South Africa 2010

Member Review by HerrHexenmeister:

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.

Ripe and chunky, with an earthy, gamy streak running through the anise-scented black cherry flavors. Approachable now, best from 1998.

Smooth and pretty, with floral and spicy notes adding interest to the light berry flavors. Ready to drink.

Smooth and ripe, medium in weight, featuring appealing plum, spice and tar flavors that soften on the finish. Good now through 1997.

Supple and generous with its blackberry and cherry flavors, shaded with black olive and pepper as the finish persists. Drink now through 2010.

Smooth and appealing for its pretty plum and spice flavors on a medium frame. An easy-drinking red, finishing with a silky feel.

A full, round and astringent style, the generous black berry flavors of this shiraz need a sirloin grilled rare or a thick burger to balance their tannins.

On the light side, this refreshing red exhibits ripe cherry and spice flavors, finishing with open texture. Drink now.
