2012 Peter Lehmann Stonewell Shiraz 14.5% 6x75

Price: 190.00


Fruit from no more than a dozen small, old vineyards is selected to create this wine each year, the oldest planted in 1885. Three premium estate owned, low-yielding vineyards met the Stonewell standard to be included into this vintage. All three vineyards; Obbietivo, Carey and Simar are located in the southern part of the Barossa.
This limited release flagship winefrom Peter Lehmann. Old vine Barossa Shiraz grapes were fermented on their skins for two weeks prior to pressing off through a small batch basket press. The wine was then aged in French oak hogsheads for 12 months prior to bottling, and was further aged in the cellars before release.
There are aromas of dark, plummy fruit and a touch of chocolate and aniseed. The palate is richly structured with fine tannins and a long, persistent finish. The wine shows distinct flavours of black fruits, dark plums, liquorice, dark chocolate with hints of black pepper.
