Peter Lehmann ‘Stonewell’ Barossa Shiraz 2010

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 27-Jun-2014
Fruit from selected low-yielding sites predominantly from Ebenezer, Nuriootpa, Freeling and the company’s Stonewell Road site, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 14 months in 90% French and 10% American oak hogsheads. Black-red colour, near impenetrable, with youthful purple hues on rim. The nose is beautifully expressed with great intensity of ripe black fruits, unfolding plums, chocolate, liquorice and sweet, spicy aromatic and lifted oak. The componenty is seamlessly entwined with perfect proportion and the richness and interwoven detailing showing great finesse. Fullish-bodied, the elegance and smooth, seamless flow belies the considerable richness and underlying drive and power. Ripe black fruits, liquorices, spices, floral and black mineral nuances, are all enhanced by aromatic oak notes, and melded with beauty and harmony. The flavours are supported by very fine-grained, powdery tannins, lending the concentrated core great elegance and length. This is an exceptionally refined and seamless wine with real concentration, richness and interest. It will develop over the next 10-15 years. 19.5/20 Jun 2014 RRP $110.00
