1997 was an outstanding vintage for our red varieties, producing supple fruit with great body and depth of flavour. The 1997 Lindemans Padthaway Pinot Noir is an excellent example of this classic variety and is arguably the most stylistic Pinot Noir produced from this vineyard.
Colour: Vibrant cherry red colour.
Nose: Pinot Noir fruit characters of strawberry and plum fill the glass while subtle oak and extended lees character contribute to the wines complexity.
Palate: This is a medium-bodied wine with soft fruit characters of plum and strawberry layered with nutty vanillin oak. There is great persistence on the finish.
Lindemans Padthaway Pinot Noirs appealing and vibrant fruit characters will give greatest enjoyment now or in the next 18 months to two years.
A delicious match with seared Atlantic salmon and mash, Chinese-style roast duck or ripe Australian cheeses.
