92 Points James Halliday
Holding hue well; elegant cedary, savoury, cigar box aromas; very different fruit register and texture; fine, savoury tannins and good oak. Has developed well over the past 2 years. Drink to 2012.

Lindemans Coonawarra Pyrus is a classic Bordeaux style blend sourced from the centre of Coonawarra's Terra Rossa strip, including the century old nursery vineyard, the oldest planting in the Coonawarra. It utilises a backbone of old vine Coonawarra Cabernet, fleshed out by Merlot and Cabernet Franc to create a particularly rich, and supple wine of great complexity. This elegant blend can be enjoyed young or left to improve in the bottle for many years to come.
A medium to full bodied wine with an excellent palate
showing intense berry fruit flavours, and rich, long, fine,
chalky tannins. This is very much a wine that shows the
intended richness and elegance of a premium Coonawarra
