I distrust camels, and anyone else who can go a week without a drink.
Joe E. Lewis

The great wines keep pouring at Grape Expectations!!  Please join us this Saturday, November 29th from the hours of 12-4 PM for another excellent round of desirable wines.  We are pleased to welcome back Mr. Lewis Gertz, representative for Reliable-Churchill Distributors as he opens up three exciting new Australian wines.  When one thinks of Australian wines,  the most popular winery that comes to mind is Lindemans.  Well, they're back again to show that they are still on top with a selection of three different reserve varietals.
Mr Gertz will have the following wines open for your tasting pleasure:

Reserve Label offers Lindemans drinkers enhanced quality at an attractive price.


Lindemans Reserve Chardonnay

The 2002 Lindemans Reserve Chardonnay comes primarily from the Padthaway region (78%), where the fruit ripened slowly throughout the season providing intensely flavoured fruit with natural acidity and aromatics. Its peach and melon characters are further enhanced by a hint of cashews, resulting from lees contact and French oak aging.

Lindemans Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2001 Lindemans Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from premium regions throughout South Australia with significant proportions from Padthaway, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. The wine was aged for nine months in new and used French and American oak barrels. The cool-climate Cabernet fruit provides aromas of dark berry, tobacco.

The wine is medium to full bodied with an excellent balance of blackcurrant fruit flavour, complexity and sweet chary oak. It has excellent length and structure, derived from high quality fruit.

Lindemans Reserve Shiraz

The 2001 Lindemans Reserve Shiraz has an intense aroma packed with blackberry fruit, liquorice and spice. Being aged for nine months in both French and American oak barrels adds a hint of sweet, toasted cedar. Rich, deep, blackberry fruit flavours and spices combine in a medium to full-bodied palate. The Lindemans Reserve Shiraz has a youthful vibrancy but is in no way overpowering. The majority of the fruit for this wine was sourced from Padthaway, Eden Valley and McLaren Vale.
