Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
Given its very good quality, ultra-low price (the current average in supermarkets is $10) and huge volumes (batch variation is inevitable), this non-vintage bubbly is a miracle of modern winemaking. It is blended from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, grown in Gisborne and Hawke's Bay, and matured for a year on its yeast lees. Fractionally sweet (12 grams/litre of residual sugar), it generally shows good vigour and depth in a refined style, crisp and finely balanced, with lively, lemony, slightly nutty and yeasty flavours. The wine I tasted in September 2011 was pale straw, with a steady 'bead' and peachy, slightly toasty and creamy flavours, crisp and gently sweet. For the price, it offered plenty of personality. (In 2010, the Lindauer brand was sold by Pernod Ricard NZ to a joint venture by brewer Lion and Indevin, New Zealand's largest independent contract winemaker.)
