A very nice Shiraz for the price. Nice and Chocolaty. Read more

87 points. I don't know how wine spectator came up with 91 but this could be a bottle variation . This bottle was screw capped so it must be later filling. The nose was fine the overall structure very balance with the exception of a strong fruit acid that spoils it for me.

This is available for 11.95 at costco. Opens well with chocolate even toffee sweetness from with mid chewiness and a really deep long tart to dry vanilla finish. Pleasure in a bottle, not orgasmic but great with virtually any food. We bind tested some friends who picked it as French Cote due Rhone Blend or Bordeaux (?). Encore requested with gorgonzola and ripe french brie. Rate 89-90/100

Hill & Valley wines showcase the great diversity of the Barossa. From the hills of Eden Valley vineyards to those situated on the Barossa Valley floor, these ancient soils provide the base for great wines that speak of their origins. 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 : 100% Premium Barossa Shiraz Region : Australia / Barossa / Eden Valley Maker : Andrew Wigan Notes : A deep red colour, with a strong burst of black cherry and chinese five spice showing through. The palate exudes rich soft fruit with a soft texture and the finish is long with soft gentle tannins. Drinking well now but will also mature with age over the next 5 - 8 years. Serve : The perfect pairing for spicy beef stir fry, barbecued Chorizo sausage or with great parmesan. ABV : 14.50%

Deep in colour our Shiraz is rich and generous, with intense flavours of plum and chocolate, and fruit that has been mellowed by 12 months oak maturation. Enjoy with a beef scotch fillet, pan fried pork chops or crisp roast duck. - Winery

On the tart side, with firm tannins and blackberry flavors that linger nicely on the chewy finish. Best after 2007. 50,000 cases made.

Tiefes Schwarz-Rot. In der Nase opulent; nach reifen Pflaumen sowie Anklänge an Mokka- Schokolade. Im Gaumen gut strukturiert, ausgewogen, mit Aromen dunkler Früchte; gut integrierte, dezente Tanninen mit einem langen, festen Nachhall

The 1996 Shiraz Stonewell is a big, broodingly backward wine offering aromas and flavors of melted asphalt, black raspberries, smoke, graphite, pepper, and blackberries. Full-bodied and moderately tan... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 1996 Peter Lehmann Shiraz Stonewell 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

A wine of great depth of colour reflecting the splendid 2009 red wine vintage. The bouquet has tantalising aromas of dark plums and black fruits with just a hint of oak in the background. It is a seamless wine with an excellent structure, its rich fruit reined in by firm tannins. A beautiful expression of Barossa Shiraz, it will continue to develop in the bottle for five plus years. This wine is a perfect accompaniment with steak, roast beef or lamb and excellent with pizza and meat based pasta dishes. It is delightful with aged cheddar or pecorino cheeses.
