Winemaker's Notes:

The Lindemans Bin 45 Cabernet Sauvignon was assembled from grapes sourced from diverse vineyard regions to produce a complex, full flavoured Cabernet, which shows great varietal character with balanced subtle oak. Winemaker Phillip Johns Comments: Colour: Deep plum red. Nose: An attractive nose displaying excellent varietal fruit character. The aromas are of ripe dark berry fruit, violets and a hint of green leaf. Palate: The wine is medium bodied and full flavoured in style with a palate of wonderful sweet berried Cabernet fruits with cassis notes. This flavour is supported by a gentle oak influence. Serving and cellaring suggestions: Lindemans Bin 45 Cabernet Sauvignon is an ideal example of the Lindemans Bin Series. With its dark berry and herbaceous characters this is a prime example of Cabernet Sauvignon and is ideal for immediate enjoyment. However, it also has the weight and structure to develop and become more complex with short term cellaring. Try the Lindemans Bin 45 with beef Wellington, roast leg of lamb or hard cheeses such as Parmigiano or Romano.

About Lindemans Wines of Australia:

In 1843, Dr. Lindeman planted his first vineyard on his 330-acre property ‘Cawarra’ in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales. By cellaring wines and not releasing them for sale until they had properly matured, Dr. Lindeman earned a reputation for producing wine of the highest quality. In 1973, the Lindeman’s Winery at Karadoc was built to cater for the increasing consumer demand for Lindeman’s wines around the world. Lindeman’s Bin 65 Chardonnay was first crafted for the Canadian market and launched in 1985 in response to the popularity of the Lindeman’s style of wines in the northern hemisphere.

Following its success in Canada and the United States, Lindeman’s Bin 65 was ‘brought home’ to Australia in 1991. The winemaking team of nine is spread across Victoria and South Australia. Wayne Falkenberg and his team at the Lindeman’s Karadoc Winery produce wines for the Cawarra, Bin Series and Premier Selection labels, whilst the team based in the Coonawarra produce the Reserve and Coonawarra Trio wines.
