Critic Scores & reviews
""This mix of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cab Franc scores points for its deep and lush bouquet, which brings with it a healthy whack of oak that smells a lot like charred hamburger. The flavors veer toward cassis, cherry and plum, almost as the nose indicates. A bright, flashy finish with some raciness is the curtain call.""

Australia's wine industry is a thriving part of the country's economy, contributing significantly to employment, production, export, and tourism. In fact, the industry is the fourth-largest wine exporter in the world, shipping out 760 million liters of wine to countries including France, Italy, Spain, and the UK. One of the key factors contributing to Australia's success as a "New World" wine producer is the formal export and marketing of its wines through Wine Australia.
Australia's wine regions are scattered across the south and southeast, with almost every state boasting its own vineyards. Victoria, for example, is home to an impressive 21 wine regions. Some of the most famous wine regions in Australia include Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley, and local regions to New South Wales such as Cowra, Southern Highlands, and Mudgee.
Australian winemakers are known for producing a diverse range of grape varieties, with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir being among the most popular. They tend to focus on producing wines that are ripe, fruit-forward, and easy to drink, using modern winemaking techniques and equipment such as stainless steel tanks and temperature-controlled fermentation.
With its bold, fruit-driven flavors and reputation for quality and diversity, Australian wine has become a popular choice for wine lovers around the world. And with such a broad range of wine regions and grape varieties, there's something for every palate to enjoy.
If you like Australian wine, then you probably like South Australia wine. The rich reds produced there put Australia on the wine-making map of the world. With over 40% of the country's vineyards, South Australia can rightfully call itself the wine state.
Wines are produced in several regions throughout the state, though many are naturally grouped together, like Barossa and Eden Valleys, only 15 minutes apart. They include such regions as Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Eden Valley, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, The Limestone Coast, McLaren Vale and Wrattonbully to name but a few!
Barossa Valley boasts some of the oldest vines in Australia dating back to 1843 and produces some of the world's finest Shiraz, whilst the 'terra rossa' soils of Coonawarra is most suited to producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignons. If you're a fan of Riesling, Clare Valley is a great place to explore and for a Maritime climate not dissimilar to parts of the Italian coastline, seek out the wines from McLaren Vale.

About the brand Lindemans
Lindeman's have a rich history dating back to 1843 when Dr Lindeman planted the first vines on his 816-acre property 'Cawarra' in the Hunter Valley.
He planted riesling, verdelho and shiraz grapevines and set about building a cottage, a winery and a cellar to age his wines until they were ready for release.
As the decades passed, the Lindeman's family continued to look for opportunities to invest in prime vineyards in the hunter valley region like the Ben Ean property (where a cellar door is located) and also expanded in to the Barossa Valley, Coonawarra, Padthaway, Clare Valley and Corowa
In 1965, Lindeman's winemaker Karl Stockhausen crafted two wines that went on to generate a cult-following in subsequent decades. These were the 1965 Lindeman's Hunter River Burgundy Bin 3100 and 1965 Lindeman's Hunter River Burgundy 3110. These wines remain highly sought after by leading wine critics, such as James Halliday who has said they'll age to 100 years if carefully cellared and re-corked.
