Lindemans Bin 65 Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
More depth to the straw-green colour than many prior to their first birthday; it also has distinctly greater structure and varietal flavour than most sub-$10 Chardonnays. If all the blend batches are as good as this one, show success may follow.

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Has more green tinges to the colour than most of its peers, and likewise has more texture, possibly from lees contact in tank and/ or its touch of oak. Ready now, and well priced.

Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
Lindemans Bin 65 has always been one of the best made chardonnays on the bottom shelf, and considering the vintage and the volume, this release is something of a triumph. It melds peach, melon and citrus zest in a soft yet lively style, with a finish defined by fruit integrity and balanced acidity.

Yellow-green hues have already developed; a mainstream commercial chardonnay with ample stone fruit flavours that do not rely on sweetness nor oak; drink now.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Melon and peach bouquet with a toasty oak overlay; the palate is generous, albeit with a slightly clipped finish.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
An important wine for Australia, even after donating its market share in the US to yellowtail; clean, bright, quite fresh, with balanced peachy/stone fruit; oak irrelevant, and isn't obviously sweet.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Light-bodied; gentle stone fruit has an airbrush of well-handled oak; needs a touch more mid-palate fruit, but in no way, shape or form relies on residual sugar. Utterly true to itself.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
Citrusy mango-like fruit with a dusty background of vanilla, buttery and cashew-like oak precedes a juicy and forward palate whose mouthfilling peach, melon and nectarine-like fruit finishes with soft, but refreshing acids. Fruit-driven, with good intensity and brightness.

Amazingly, has won gold medals at both the Brisbane and Adelaide Royal Wine Shows this year, against a myriad of much higher-priced contestants. The bouquet offers melon, stone fruit and the barest hint of oak; the palate is well balanced, with a touch of creaminess, and moderate fruit intensity. Clever winemaking.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Like Old Man River, just keeps rollin' along, winning show medals and plaudits from around the world. Light to medium yellow-green; there is fruit complexity on the bouquet, and cleverly infused oak. The technical brilliance shows through in the palate, with above-average length and complexity, fruit-driven but with oak lurking in the background. Has won a medal at every show in which is has been entered.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; the bouquet is quite fragrant, with melon and peach fruit and excellently balanced use of a touch of oak. The palate lives up to the bouquet, ith similar melon and peach fruit, and an ever so cunning touch of spicy oak, doubtless from the use of innerstaves and chips, but extremely well done.
