Peter Lehmann Stonewall Shiraz Barossa Valley 2007

Member Review by Terence Pang:

Retail price $80. The flagship of the Peter Lehmann winery. The wine sat in 90% French oak, 10% American for 18 months. Intense black ruby colour. Expressive aromas of dark chocolate that attempts to blanket the deeper core of dark plum fruit. A dry, full-bodied wine that feels tight and limited at the moment. Tannins are fine but grippy and should loosen up over time. The palate is rather closed, but there is no doubt of latent dark berry and plum flavours. I just wonder whether the freshness of the wine can hold on for as long as it takes the tannins to settle in. Needs a revisit in ~3 years. 91+?
