Lindemans Reserve Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

For a reserve chardy, this is amazing value! Sourced from the Padthaway region in south Australia, it's quite a rich number showing aromas of fleshy peaches, gooseberries, lemons and a touch of toast and dairy on the nose. Meanwhile, the palate is fruity, plush and a touch creamy in texture, with a bright line of citrusy acidity, licks of toasty oak, and a bright but smooth finish that makes for easy drinking. Drink in good company with a slight chill, or serve with chicken and mayo sandwiches.

Winemaker's Notes

Grapes for the Reserve Padthaway Chardonnay are picked while the temperatures are cool, resulting in fruit with good varietal definition and balanced flavours. This wine was aged for 12 months in American oak to add complexity to the blend, while maintaining its fresh fruit focus.

The aromas of white peach and tropical fruit. 

The palate is rich and creamy, bursting with fresh fruit flavours. The long finish shows hints of well integrated oak, balanced by a lively acidity for a clean, refreshing finish.

Fresh stone-fruit bouquet and fresh and lively palate with creamy oak quite evident.

A slightly drying young chardonnay revealing cooked citrus/melon fruit, toasty, toffee-like development and buttery vanilla oak. It opens up after some time in the glass, finishing nutty and savoury.

We rated this Pretty Good in the last edition: a year on, it's developed more interesting characters. As the name suggests, it's quite reserved, with fresh aromas of apple, lemon and wafers (you know: like those flaky wafers you'd sandwich vanilla ice-cream between). It's a wine with good finesse and fine fruit.
