Lindeman’s Bin Series Cawarra Semillon Chardonnay 2000
Nose: The bouquet shows ripe nutty citrus melon fruit elements with a framework of subtle oak and malolactic fermentation.
Palate: The full bodied palate abounds with soft creamy varietal fruit flavours and finishes with refreshingly crisp acidity.
Serving and Cellaring Suggestions: This easy-drinking, full flavoured wine should ideally be enjoyed now or over the next year while attractive, young and vibrant. It is a versatile, food-friendly wine that suits a wide range of flavours, especially fish fillets, smoked trout pate or other seafood dishes, as well as chicken, veal and pasta.
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.
