Peter Lehmann Shiraz Art Series 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Shiraz has a long and glorious history in the Barossa where it has flourished uninterrupted since the 1850’s. The Barossa blessedly escaped the scourge of phylloxera and this means that many of its great Shiraz vineyards remain planted on their own roots. This makes the Barossa the envy of the wine world. The soils of the Barossa and its climate are ideal for producing full-flavoured, rich-fruited Shiraz wines capable of great longevity. Barossa Shiraz is the wine internationally recognised as Australia’s contribution to the great wines of the world. This example is a dense black hue with a deep garnet rim. There are lashings of dusted chocolate with an underlay of dark plum characters on the opulent nose. This is a beautifully structured and stylish Shiraz, where the rich dark fruit flavours are restrained and balanced by the firm, yet soft, fine-grained. It finishes lengthy, complex and textured. This is a great partner for beef, full-flavoured meat and poultry dishes, good Indian curries, and, of course, perfect with a fine matured cheddar cheese. The quintessential barbecue grill partner.

Reticent on the nose revealing low blackberry, vanilla, black pepper and leather aromas that are fresh and balanced. This is rather shallow on the palate with good acids and tannins just not enough fruit to fully cover them making the tannins seem dry. The fruit is lean with appealing blackberry and black plum skin notes baked up with some cedar and spice notes that disappear on the lean, somewhat stripped finish. 80pts
