In every bottle of Lindeman's wine you will find the spirit of their founder, Dr Henry Lindeman. From humble beginnings in the Hunter Valley in 1843, Dr Lindeman laid a strong foundation for what has become one of the world's most popular wines.
The first Lindeman's wine to venture overseas was in 1858, when Lindeman's Cawarra Claret was exported to the United Kingdom. By 1862, Lindeman's wines were being exhibited widely around the world and Lindeman's Cawarra gained international recognition at the International Exhibition, London. The accolades and awards continued to follow and over the next 100 years, Lindeman's global footprint grew significantly.
It was in the 1980s that Lindeman's most well-known wine was created. Lindeman's iconic Bin 65 Chardonnay was launched in Canada in 1985 in response to the popularity of Lindeman's approachable and fruit-driven style of wines in the northern hemisphere. Following its success in Canada and the United States, Lindeman's Bin 65 was then ‘brought home' to Australia in 1991.
Bin 65 Chardonnay captured the world's adoration of Australian wine and propelled the popularity of Lindeman's on an international scale. The Bin Series has since grown to incorporate 18 popular varieties.
Today, Lindeman's is enjoyed in over 100 countries around the world. They are proud to draw on 170+ years of continued winemaking and entrepreneurship to craft popular wine styles that people simply love to drink
Ageing Potential: Drink for another 2 years
Light, pale lemon yellow in colour, the 2014 vintage has tremendous intensity on the nose, with perfumes of passion fruit and blackcurrants. On the palate, it is clean and fresh, with good balance between elegant, ripe fruit, crisp minerally acidity and a long, perfumed finish.This is drinking very well now due to the stelvin/screwcap closure.
