Lindeman’s Bin Series Coonawarra Pyrus 1998
The Pyrus is an excellent dark purple/crimson red. On the nose, it offers sweet, nutty berry fruit with great concentration, combined with a background of cedary French oak. A full-bodied, long and intense wine that reflects the outstanding vintage in Coonawarra. The liquorice and leafy blackcurrant fruit flavours finish with soft tannins.
Pair with rich meats such as roasted lamb, venison or steak fillet.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
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.
