Peter Lehmann Red Blend Barossa Layers 2010
Semillon, Muscat, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay, each add character to the final blend. An attractive pale yellow with green tints, it has aromas of citrus, hints of peach and aromatic lifted spiciness. It has excellent structure and a soft creamy mouth-feel, delightful depth on the middle palate and finishes wonderfully fresh with a mouthful of crunchy fruit.

Editorial Reviews for Peter Lehmann Red Blend Barossa Layers
2009 Lehmann Layers Shiraz Barossa 14.5% $13 Very peppery on the nose, with red fruit and a rather herbal, dried wood, old tree bark note adding complexity to the late arriving notes of smoked meat. A touch sweet on entry, this is fairly bright in the mouth with lively acids and nice tannins lending tension. The flavors are rather subdued, fairly aromatic in the mouth with red fruit notes and a nice savory, herbal element as well as a hint of mushroom on the backend. The finish is a bit short and shows more black fruit. A nice, friendly easy to drink Shiraz Blend. 87pts
A nice white blend. Not for the person looking for a real dry white wine.
An intriguing blend of Pinot Gris, Muscat, GewArztraminer, Chardonnay, Semillon. This wine paired well with oven roasted halibut in a garlic cream sauce and sliced, butter roasted potatoes with bacon and onion. There's nice hints of the various "layered" varietals with each sip, and a crisp balanced structure of stone fruits, honey, citrus and melon. Very pleasant finish that doesn't linger too long.
Good value Shiraz blend of five grapes. Subtle dry tannins with lovely pepper finish. Black licorice and plum/blackberry accents. Overall balanced red, but slightly acidic.
Kate. Likes. 2010.
Good summer sipper with Muscat and Gewurztraminer predominating on both nose and palate. Good tropical fruit flavors and spice - sure to be a crowd pleaser! Chill to normal refrigerator temperature (45 degreesFahrenheit or 7 degrees Celsius for best results).
Smooth, refreshing, delightful. Great for sipping or with light summer fare such as grilled seafood and salads. Worth the price!!
External Reviews for Peter Lehmann Red Blend Barossa Layers
INTRIGUINGLY COMPLEX, SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL Peter Lehmann's 'Layers' range of wines are a unique blend that deliver a highly enjoyable journey of discovery for the senses in each and every glass. As a 5th generation Barossan, Peter Lehmann was the son of a Pastor and was born in Angaston in 1930. He started wine-making in 1947 under the mentorship of the great Rudi Kronberger, moving on after thirteen years to become manager and wine producer at Saltram Wines. His own estate was founded in 1979, to support the Barossa growers facing financial ruin due to overproduction, and he soon became acknowledged as a producer of premium quality wines gaining an international reputation and following. James Halliday, the eminent wine writer said "It's not often a person becomes a legend in their own lifetime" Grapes : 55% Shiraz, 18% Tempranillo, 17% Mourvedre and 10% Grenache Region : Australia / Barossa Maker : Andrew Wigan Notes : A vibrant red cherry colour, this is a real multi-dimensional wine with all four grape varietals adding their own unique characters to the final blend. A real burst of red berries and spice on the nose with a smooth mouth filling juice give way slowly to a softly textured finish. Serve : Ideally drunk young with Mediterranean dishes of meat, spicy Indian style curries and hearty casseroles. ABV : 14.50%
