Peter Lehmann The Barossan Shiraz 2018

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AustraliaAs the name suggestes, The Barossan is to summarize Peter Lehmann's view of the Barossa Valley, with fruit drawn from numerous vineyards across the valley floor. Post stainless ferment, this aged 15 months in American oak (25% new). The power and intent of this massive wine is achieved, and felt, with gobs of sweet, plummy fruit lashed with chocolate and vanilla, and padded with cushy, sueded tannins, trailing off with baking spices and a swell of warmth. Thankfully, this is now settled a bit with time, and at a prime place for drinking now, with juicy steak.Tasted: 16 July 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 22.99 BCLS AB 22.95 select private retailers MB 23.09 Manitoba Liquor Mart NS 22.98 NSLC Producer: Peter Lehmann Wines LimitedDistributors: Dandurand
