Wine Summary Image

The LINDEMANS Coonawarra trio is a culmination of over 150 years of winemaking experience. They are the ultimate expression of LINDEMANS winemaking skill; three landmark wines crafted in a traditional style that

remains faithful to Dr Henry J Lindemans' impeccable winemaking principles.

The grapes for the LINDEMANS St George Vineyard Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced entirely from 30-year-old vines on the celebrated 12-hectare LINDEMANS St George Vineyard. This particularly low-yieldingvineyard is located directly on the Limestone spine of the Terra Rossa strip and produces a wine that is the very essence of Coonawarra. This illustrious wine is full bodied, complex and intense with the ability to age gracefully.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

Deep and intense purple with some crimson hues.

Aroma

A powerful, intense nose of deep blackcurrant fruit, bramble and tobacco-leaf characters with toasted, cinnamon oak complexity.

Palate

The medium-full bodied palate is intense. Its vibrant rich fruits of cassis and blackberry are balanced by the fine

powdery tannins presenting a wine with both finesse and power.

The History

Lindeman's wines contain the spirit and passion of its founder, Dr. Henry J Lindeman, whose philosophy was to craft wines for everyday enjoyment.

In 1843, Dr. Lindeman had planted his first vineyard on his 330-acre property 'Cawarra' in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales. One hundred years after, the Lindeman's Wine Company became a public listed company.

By cellaring wines and not releasing them for sale until they had properly matured, Dr. Lindeman earned a reputation for producing wine of the highest quality. In 1973, the Lindeman's Winery at Karadoc was built to cater for the increasing consumer demand for Lindeman's wines around the world.

The Vineyards

The winemaking team of nine is spread across Victoria and South Australia. Wayne Falkenberg and his team at the Lindeman's Karadoc Winery produce wines for the Cawarra, Bin Series and Premier Selection labels, whilst the team based in the Coonawarra produce the Reserve and Coonawarra Trio wines.

Wayne Falkenberg

It was an early interest in biochemistry and some connections in the winemaking industry that encouraged Wayne to enter the field of Winemaking. He was born and raised in the Barossa Valley of South Australia, where his parents grew grapes for a number of wineries in the region.In 1974, Wayne entered Roseworthy Agricultural College and completed his Diploma in Oenology in 1976. Later that same year, Wayne joined LINDEMANS® as an Assistant Winemaker, at the Karadoc winery in northwestern Victoria.

Today Wayne is the Winemaker Manager, leading a team of eight winemakers and responsible for many commercial wines. The focus is on producing consistently great tasting wines for everyday enjoyment. The wines are fresh, soft, easy drinking and very affordable, value for money wines.

Wayne says "Commercial wines are harder to make than most wines because you have to be able to reliably produce a wine that is instantly recognisable year in year out, but there is no way Mother Nature gives you the same ingredients every year. Sourcing fruit from a wide area allows the freedom of blending to produce wines of consistency."

Cellar Condition

Provenance; “Place of origin; derivation”

  • The history of the ownership of an object, especially when documented or authenticated. Used for Artworks, Antiques, and Wine.
  • The records or documents authenticating such an object or the history of its ownership.

Whenever you buy wine there is an inherent risk, as wine is a perishable good regardless of whether it is sealed under cork or screwcap. At GraysOnline we minimise the risk to you by providing as much information as possible regarding the provenance of the wine we sell.

We take the time to individually inspect each bottle and photograph it so you know exactly what you are buying. All Private Cellar wine stored at GraysOnline is kept in a temperature controlled wine storage area. Any wine that doesn’t meet our quality standards will not be sold.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 5 star designation are recognised as being of proven quality provenance, our team has verified that the wine has been stored correctly from original purchase straight from the winery, documentation, where possible, has been sighted and cellaring conditions have been inspected. This wine generally comes from only the best and most respected of wine collectors in Australia.

★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 4 star designation have been cellared correctly as verified by the current owners. In general these wines have been purchased from retailers or traders and stored in cellared conditions from original purchase.

★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 3 star designation are in good condition when we inspect and we are able to confirm some cellaring conditions but we are unable to verify all ownership and storage conditions of their history.

A wine displaying no stars doesn’t mean that there is a problem with the wine, it simply means that we have been unable to verify provenance, however a quality image is always available for the purchaser to make their own purchasing decisions.

Private Cellar wine is wine which has been stored for aging purposes in a Private Cellar.

Storing the wine and allowing it to age has the potential to improve the quality of the wine. While wine is perishable and capable of deteriorating, storing the wine can alter the aroma, colour, mouthfeel and taste of the wine in a way that may be more pleasing to the taster.
