Peter Lehmann ‘VSV’ ‘1885’ Shiraz 2009

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 27-Jun-2014
Full, dark, black-garnet colour, deep and dense. The nose is voluminous with intensely packed aromas that blossom with layers of ripe black and red fruits, plums, Asian spices and lifted nutty and vanilla-like and complex oak that unfolds in waves. Medium-full bodied, sweetly vibrant and bright fruit flavours of black berries, plums and liquorice are enriched and lifted with aromatic, cedary, spicy oak. The mouthfeel has great energy with beautiful acidity providing tension, and refined tannin-extraction, lending a degree of elegance, if not finesse. The tightness and concentrated line carry through to a long finish. This is a classical, old-vine Barossa Shiraz with aromatic oaking that will age 10+ years easily. Fruit from the ‘Schrapel’ vineyard, Ebenezer, established in 1885, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in French oak hogsheads. 600 cases made. 19.0-/20 Jun 2014 RRP $59.00
