PETER LEHMANN STONEWELL SHIRAZ 2016

$100.00

Great winemaking, vintage and fruit quality have come together beautifully in this wine which will age well…”

Peter Lehmann’s Barossa Valley Shiraz has yielded another gorgeous shiraz.

Dense black centre with a deep garnet rim. The nose shows lashings of dark plums and chocolate with hints of mint. A wine of great dignity, its structure is superbly taut, with intense depth of fruit reined in by the firm tannins. As benefits a wine made in strictly limited quantities, this is a wine for posterity and may be cellared with confidence.

97 points – Angus Hughson The Wine Pilot

“Made with fruit sourced from Moppa, Stonewell and Ebenezer, including some elevated vineyards, and from an excellent vintage, this is a beautifully pitched Barossan with crystal clear long aging potential. Deeply coloured and currently quite closed and compact, it slowly unpacks in the glass. Blackberry and blueberry at first before more savoury elements emerge – liquorice and fresh tar well matched by new large French oak. The palate is then dry and muscular but well composed with a freight train of dark and rocky fruits supported by a firm structure. Great winemaking, vintage and fruit quality have come together beautifully in this wine which will age well.”
