Peter Lehmann Shiraz My Word Is My Bond 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Peter Lehmann once said - only half jokingly -that when God created Shiraz, he did so with the Barossa in mind! Shiraz has had a long and glorious history in the Barossa where it has flourished uninterrupted since the 1840’s. The Barossa blessedly escaped the scourge of phylloxera, and consequently many of the vineyards remain planted on their own roots, direct descendants of cuttings brought to Australia in the early 1800’s from Hermitage in the Rhone Valley. This makes the Barossa the envy of the wine world. The soils and climate are ideal for producing the full flavoured, rich fruited Shiraz wines of great longevity that have made them internationally recognised as Australia’s contribution to the great wines of the world. This example has a deep garnet rim with a black centre. There are lashings of dark chocolate on the nose. Showing the classic richness of Barossa Shiraz with a superb depth of fruit on the middle palate reined in by fine chalky tannins on the finish, this is a great partner for beef, full flavoured meat and poultry dishes, good Indian curries, and of course perfect with fine chocolates.
