Lindeman's is an Australian winery, owned by Treasury Wine Estates. It was founded in 1843 by Henry Lindeman who planted its first vines in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales. This original vineyard no longer exists, and the winery now has vineyards in South Australia (Barossa Valley and Coonawarra), in Padthaway and at Karadoc. It is considered a mass-producer of reasonably priced, good quality wine.[1]

In 1993, its Bin 65 chardonnay was Australia's top-selling white-wine export. Five consecutive vintages have been named "best buys" by The Wine Spectator, a consumer magazine, and Robert M. Parker, Jr. has called it "one of the three or four finest chardonnay values in the world" in his newsletter The Wine Advocate.[2]

In the mid 1950's it produced wines of excellence that are still sought after by wine collectors and wine enthusiasts today.[3]
