Cracka Review

Lindauer continues to keep a legion of fans happy by offering a Sparkling style that won’t harm your budget. In fact it’s one of the best bubblies around for the price and works as an excellent aperitif style, with or without food. An elegant aroma reveals notes of yeast and subtle toast thanks to prolonged maturation in the bottle. Crisp and complex with zesty lemon flavours and balanced, zippy acids this is guaranteed to kick off any party in the right fashion.

Winemaker's Notes

Lindauer is full on the palate with a pleasant, steady mousse and elegant aroma. The yeasty and toasty bouquet show excellent maturity from prolonged bottle maturation on lees. The palate is crisp, complex and well balanced, with a full flavour and lasting taste.

Serving Suggestion: Lindauer Brut is a dry style, versatile bottle fermented sparkling wine that can be served as an aperitif or with any style of food.

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer says
New Zealand's first commercial methode traditionnelle bubbles has struck new levels of finesse this year. From mature Gisborne vineyards, with a full year on lees, this chardonnay pinot noir blend is crisp and fresh with lemon zest and peach fruit, well-gauged dosage sweetness and balanced appeal. It's simple and commercial, but refreshing, clean and insane value for money.

This is an attractive, easy-drinking Kiwi fizz that is soft and round with lively, clean lemon citrus flavours and fresh, zesty acidity

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal says
This is an outstanding complex sparkling wine from New Zealand where the brand has a 20-year history. It was made by Montana winemaker, Julia Cubis, from pinot noir, chardonnay and chenin blanc, sourced from Marlborough, Hawke's Bay and Gisborne. In this full-bodied and powerful bubbly, expect to find intense, yeasty, vegemitey aromas and developed rich, concentrated, butter and toast flavours, a creamy texture and a pleasing softness on the finish. Excellent value.

James Halliday says
Medium straw with a hint of pink; an excellent bouquet with a range of biscuity/bready aromas yet retaining some delicacy. On the palate, crisp, clean and well balanced with a long, gentle finish.

Don't let Lindauer's huge volumes and low price blind you to its consistently high quality. Montana's recipe for this instantly appealing bottle-fermented wine is 50 per cent Pinot Noir, 30 per cent Chardonnay and 20 per cent Chenin Blanc (to keep the acid level up), grown in Marlborough, Hawke's Bay and Gisborne. Matured on its yeast lees for 15 months, it's a very skilfully balanced and smooth wine with fresh, crisp flavours, delicate, dryish and moderately yeasty.

Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
Given its good quality, moderate price and huge volumes, this non-vintage bubbly from Pernod Ricard NZ is one of the miracles of modern winemaking. It is blended from Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, grown in Marlborough, Hawke's Bay and Gisborne, and matured for an average of 15 months on its yeast lees. Fractionally sweet (12 grams/litre of 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 sample I tasted in mid 2007 was impressive - yeasty, crisp and smooth, with good vigour and richness.

Given its good quality, low price and huge volumes, this non-vintage bubbly is one of the miracles of modern winemaking. The recipe is Pinot Noir (50 per cent), Chardonnay (30 per cent) and Chenin Blanc (20 per cent), grown in Marlborough, Hawke's Bay and Gisborne, and 15 months' maturation on yeast lees. It's a fractionally sweet style (12 grams/litre of sugar) with good vigour and flavour depth in a refined style, crisp and finely balanced. The wine I tasted in mid to late 2004 was faintly pink and moderately complex, with crisp, strawberryish, slightly nutty and yeasty flavours. At $12 or less (often under $10 and even down to $7. 95), it offers unbearable value.
