Overview

Overview

Lindeman’s St. George Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Limestone Ridge Vineyard Shiraz Cabernet and Pyrus Cabernet blend make up the Lindeman’s Coonawarra Trio. These wines represent the epitome of Lindeman’s premium winemaking heritage and four decades of red wine making in Coonawarra, South Australia.

Individually, each wine in the Coonawarra Trio is a distinguished example of its style of Cabernet Sauvignon: Pyrus offers a traditional blend; Limestone Ridge delivers the quintessential Australia Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon blend, while St. George is purely Cabernet Sauvignon.

Collectively, the Coonawarra Trio comprises a group that is truly representative of one of Australia’s most prestigious Cabernet Sauvignon regions and a coveted addition to the cellars of serious wine collectors at home and abroad.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Complex fruit aromas of cassis, blackcurrant and plum with an array of crushed and dried herbs such as nutmeg, bay leaf and tobacco all complimented by quality French oak.

Flavours and Palate

The palate is medium to full bodied, generous and mouth filling with rich dark fruit framed by tight gravelly tannins and balanced juicy acidity. The plate is embellished with superb savoury oak that adds another element of complexity to the fruit without overwhelming the wine style.

John Fordham

"Along with its celebrated stablemates St George and Limestone Ridge, Pyrus completes Lindeman's famous wine Coonawarra trifecta. A cabernet sauvignon led blend, it offers the luxury of early enjoyment and 7-10 years cellaring. Winemaker Brett Sharpe's balance of fruit and oak is spot on."

Steven Creber

"The most ‘fruit-driven' of this set of releases, with each variety eager to express itself. Blackcurrant, mulberry and raspberry dominate the aroma and flavour spectrum, with savoury, cedary oak sitting in the background..."

Gary Walsh

"Pyrus most often my favourite of the ‘Coonawarra Trio’. Something about the texture and flavour profile that’s more appealing. It’s the quiet ones you have to watch, and all that. And we know this from working with Campbell for quite some time…

Violet, black fruits, chocolate, dried herbs and vanilla oak. Medium-bodied, good spread of tannin and flavour, quite dense without being heavy, savoury tobacco and a nice chewy finish of good length. It’s a wine to get your teeth into. Fruit, perfume, savoury complexity, texture: all there."

Viticulture

Viticulture

The growing season was drier than average, and careful irrigation to optimise flavour development worked very well. Harvest was two weeks early, the result of a warmer than average October which advanced the whole season. There was a cooler finish with mild ripening conditions. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz have full palate richness whilst being medium bodied with fine tannins and excellent colour.
