Wine Review: Lindemans Cabernet Sauvignon Bin #45

lindemans_cabernet_sauvignonJust Go Buy a Lambic

Lindemans is an Australian winery founded in 1843 by Henry Lindeman. They produce wines, lambics (Belgian fruit beers) and other beverages. Like BV, it runs the gamut in terms of wine quality, creating some of the most remarkable wines in Australia along with an astonishing array of value-priced wines. In fact, its “Bin 65 Chardonnay” is Australia’s best-selling white wine and is often listed as one of the best Chardonnay values around.

Unfortunately, the Cabernet Sauvignon we tried did not measure up to the Chardonnay.


Great color. Beautiful, rich burgundy with hues of copper and garnet.


Mint, strawberry and some touches of soil. Pretty tight.


Hollow and silky. We could feel it in our mouths and on our tongues, but that’s all we had to prove that we had taken a sip. Essentially, the wine is tannic water, with the small (but at least present) amount of fruit having gone the way of the Dodo. The finish remained silky and we were able to get some phantom flavors of mint and very sour blackberries. That was about it.

With Food

Not much, really. Your tastes may vary (obviously), so we would assume you would want to serve this with a nice roast, tomato sauce or even some meats and vegetables both roasted on a BBQ.
