Peter Lehmann The Barossan Shiraz 2016 £16.95
PETER LEHMANN THE BAROSSAN SHIRAZ
Crafted by the next generation of Peter Lehmann winemakers, The Barossan showcases the superb fruit sourced from the many sub-regions across the Barossa Valley. Parcels of high quality fruit were carefully selected from around 40 growers to produce a seamless blend of varying expressions of Shiraz.
The fruit was fermented and macerated on skins for up to two weeks, with 25% barrel fermentation. Once blended, the wine was transferred into barrels, 50% of which were new American oak, the remainder being older French and American oak, for 15 months before bottling.
This creates a complex and layered wine with fruit intensity and suppleness. Lifted cherry and brooding dark fruit aromas combine seamlessly with sweet chocolate and mocha undertones. An intense, generous and full bodied wine with fine tannins and a soft, supple finish.

95 Points James Halliday
Curious marketing. Comes in a deluxe heavy bottle, challenging foil label and theme suggesting this is the peak of Barossa Valley shiraz. It's not that, but it's an impressive wine at the price, full-bodied but not porty or extractive. Blackberry and blood plum fruits, balanced oak and massaged tannins tick all the boxes.
