Peter Lehmann The Barossan Shiraz 2018

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AustraliaThis is sourced from vineyards across the different sub-regions of the Barossa Valley to produce, in their words, THE Barossan. I liked the previous vintage, and the 2018 is even better. There's more definition to the fruit, combining ripe blackberry and blueberry that's complemented by white pepper and sweet spices. The oak seems dialled down this vintage, or at least more fully integrated. Medium-full bodied, it’s quite soft and silky, with enough acidity to make it all work. There's a lot to like here, in a classic Barossa shiraz at a steal of a price. Perfect served lightly chilled and poured alongside BBQ.
