Lindeman's Merlot Bin 40 1.50L 2010    
Sku: 14769

The generous flavours and contemporary, easy-drinking style of Lindemans Bin 40 Merlot combines easily with food and most social occasions to deliver maximum enjoyment from the first glass to the last.

Tasting notes
Colour: A bright crimson red colour moving towards plum, with distinct pinkish edges.

Nose: The generous nose is built on a core of ripe, sweet fruits with distinctly savoury elements of leaf and spice. Subtle oak characters add depth and complexity to an otherwise fruit driven nose.

Palate: A medium bodied palate is defined by abundantly ripe plum fruit, a touch of earth and trademark Merlot spice. The wine is smooth and supple, very much in the keeping with the modern style of Merlot. Silky smooth tannins provide structure, aided by the slightest hint of oak on the finish.


Wine maker notes
Vineyard Regions: Predominantly from the Riverland district of north-eastern Victoria with significant proportions from the premium wine growing regions of the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills.

Vintage Conditions: A beautiful spring led to flourishing growth and a warmer than average summer throughout South Australia. An abundant canopy and careful vineyard management protected the Merlot grapes from the worst of the heat resulting in a crop with ripe, forward flavours. This was combined with the elegance of premium fruit from cooler regions, resulting in a balanced, flavour driven wine.


Technical notes
Vineyard Regions: Predominantly from Sunraysia in Victoria and the McLaren Vale, Bordertown and Clare Valley regions of South Australia.

Grape Variety: Merlot

Maturation: A percentage of this wine has been oak matured. Alc/Vol: 13.0%, Acidity: 6.2 grams per litre, pH: 3.36


Food pairing
Serving and Cellaring Suggestions: A food friendly wine suited to virtually all occasions and dishes from white meats such as barbequed chicken through to roast lamb. Ideally consumed when young and fresh, this wine will drink at its peak between now and 2004.
