Overview

Overview

If ever there was a gentleman of the winemaking world it was Dr. Henry J. Lindeman. In 1843, Dr Lindeman, an upstanding man of formidable character, started his own winery. In doing so, he set his sights on civilising a colony of hard-drinking ruffians by introducing them to more gentlemanly pursuits, such as the enjoyment of a refined drop.

This longheld tradition continues today with this perfectly polished red blend, featuring notes of liquorice and cherry and a dash of fortified wine for a smooth finish. A fine wine by anyone’s standard.
