The 2014 Hunter Valley vintage will go down in history as one of the region's classic vintages and has been described as once-in-a-lifetime harvest by Hunter Valley winemakers. The Bin 1410 Rare Release showcases the best parcels from Lindeman's original Ben Ean Vineyard capturing the exceptional purity and concentration of an iconic harvest.
Way back when, Lindeman’s Shiraz was known as ‘Hunter Valley Burgundy’, and this final release is testament to its golden legacy. The 2014 Bin 1410 marks the end of an era with earthy, red-berry elegance, and a steely focus on terroir. One sip, and you’ll realise it couldn’t be from anywhere else.
As powerful as it is subtle with complex layers and nuance, this medium-bodied Shiraz will age for decades to come.
Bin 1410. While labelling it Rare Release is a bit much, what isn't is the wine's appeal, namely its sense of place. It's still fresh, even primary with gentle earthy, savoury tones and a core of perfectly bound fruit, sweet leather and baking spices. Medium-bodied, lovely tannins creating a desire to pour another glass.
