Lindauer Grandeur Sparkling

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
The vivacious, Rolls-Royce version of Lindauer is a blend of Pinot Noir (70 per cent) and Chardonnay, grown in Marlborough (90 per cent) and Flawke's Bay. Blended across vintages, including old reserve stocks, it spends an average period of four years maturing on its yeast lees. Pale straw, with an eruption of small bubbles, the stylish wine on the market in 2004 is tight-knit, complex, yeasty and smooth, with impressive delicacy and a lasting finish. Classy stuff.

Michael Cooper says
The vivacious new Rolls Royce version of Lindauer is a non-vintage blend of Pinot Noir (70 per cent) and Chardonnay, grown in Marlborough (90 per cent) and Hawke's Bay. Sixty per cent of the wine is from the 1998 vintage, supplemented by reserve stocks from 1991, 1994, 1996 and 1997 (giving an average period of maturation on yeast lees of four years). When launched in November 2000, it looked classy but not exceptional, but later came together superbly. Slightly pink-hued, with an enticingly fragrant and complex bouquet, it is rich, strawberryish and intensely yeasty, with a powerful mid-palate, developed flavours and a very smooth finish. Classy stuff.
