Lindemans Pyrus 2010
Hand selected components of the finest Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc are sourced from the heart of the famous Terra Rossa strip, including components from the century old Nursery Vineyard, the oldest planting in Coonawarra. Pyrus utilises a backbone of old vine Cabernet Sauvignon, fleshed out by Malbec and Merlot to create a particularly rich yet supple wine. This release is a well-composed, medium-weight wine. It's not wacky with greenness or stylistically 'out there'; it's cool and composed and well ripened. It tastes of briary blackcurrant, dust, tobacco, cloves and bitter dark olives. There's a fleshy fruitiness to its core but a sturdy chain of dusty tannin tugs from the mid-palate onwards. It's the best structured of the 2010 Trio releases and, in a cellarworthy sense, my pick of them. Length is good too. Gum leaf aftertaste works well. Its best is clearly ahead of it. Alcohol: 14%. Closure: screwcap. Drink: 2016-2024. Price: $65. Rating: 93+/100. Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au, August 2012
