Lindemans Bin 85 Pinot Grigio '07

Country: Australia
Thoughts: You may recall Lindemans from our VPA special edition; but that was sauvignon blanc; this was pinot grigio. In addition, the bins were a full 10 slots away from each; though that's neither here nor there. At any rate, I guess I've finally learned my lesson with Lindemans; the sauvignon blanc wasn't much to write home about. This wasn't either. The nose held some sort of hint of dryness; it was hard to tell exactly what, however, because the bouquet as a whole had no discernible scents beyond the dryness. The only thing that save this wine from the realm of its brethren was that it actually tasted decent; there was a luscious citusness to it, almost to the point of being savory. I'd write about the finish too, if there were any palatable. This wine, for me, started off flat and did little in the rest of the areas to make up for the shortcomings. The potential was there - after all, it is all about taste - but, as one of my coaches once said, "You can take potential and 50 cents and walk into the field house and buy a soda." The Lindemans will have a Diet Coke, thanks.
Do-over? Nah
Final Grade: C-
