Peter Lehmann Mentor Barossa Cabernet Shiraz Malbec

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
2010 is not just one of the greatest Mentors ever made, but it’s so much further ahead of all before it. The epitome of Barossa concentration but with definitive cabernet elegance, structure and longevity, this is one of the great Barossa cabernets of the modern era. The traditional Mentor recipe of Bordeaux blend meets the great Australian cabernet shiraz has been wound back to straight cabernet on the label as the market never really caught on to this blend. Such is the calibre of 2010 Barossa cabernet, mostly sourced from Light Pass and Ebenezer in the north, that just 4% each of merlot, malbec and shiraz were called for. The result is a revelation, at once dense and intense in its blackcurrant and blackberry fruit and at the same time fragrant in violet perfume, cabernet markers of capsicum and tobacco and lively in vibrant acid structure. Supportive oak lends dark chocolate and beautifully structured, firm, fine tannins, promising a very long future.

Very good colour, and has a generous palate of black and red fruits, earth, black olive and cedary oak. A medium to full-bodied wine with a long future.
