Peter Lehmann Red Blend Barossa Valley Mentor 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit Source: Stonewell, Ebenezer and Light Pass districts of the Barossa Valley. The Vintage: A warmer year in the Barossa, producing a diverse concentration of flavours in many of the Barossa's vineyards. Colour: Deep ruby red with a black heart. Bouquet: A delicious mélange of vanilla, cassis, dark chocolate and black plum. Palate: Fours years’ maturation prior to release has allowed the blend to fully integrate. It shows a seamless palate with a superb concentration of rich plum and chocolate. Savoury French oak gives cedary notes that define a firm finishing wine with fine tannins. Wood: Barrel fermented and thence matured solely in French oak hogsheads for sixteen months prior to bottling, and then cellaring for a further two years. Cellaring: With careful cellaring, this wine will show development for a further 10 years. Alc/Vol: 13.5% Serving Suggestions: Fantastic with roasted poultry- in particular duck, goose or turkey. Also superb with roast rack of lamb, beef cheeks & mash potato or crown roast of hare.

Peter Lehmann has created another gem in the 1999 Mentor. Starting right out of the bottle it has a complex and sophisticated nose with little room for doubt about the body and potency of this wine. Tastes and smells of exciting fruits, including berries and stone fruits along with an ending of pepper and mineral. This wine is very long on the tongue and aside from a mildly chalky sensation toward the end, its longevity is appreciate. All-in-all a well built wine that should be enjoy liberally.

Dunkles Rubinrot. Ausgewogenes Bouquet mit Noten von Pflaumen, dunklen Früchten und Eichenholz, mit einem Hauch Muskatnuss und Vanille. Im Gaumen klassischer Barossa-Charakter, vollmundig, samtige Struktur mit gut eingebundenen Eichenholznoten.

Wine Spectator ReviewRated 90Dark, dense and ripe, not heavy in texture but chewy with soft tannins around a plump core of cherry, herb and smoke flavors. It all lasts impressively. A classy wine meant to wrap itself around food rather than stand on its own. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Malbec. Best from 2006 through 2012.
