Peter Lehmann Merlot

Cracka Review

The wine has a deep garnet rim with a black centre. On the nose, it is showing lashings of dark ripe plum dipped in dusted chocolate. Barossa Merlot at its best from a great red wine vintage, it is mouth filling, soft and opulent with the richness of the fruit reined in by the beautifully fine tannins on the finish. Delicious to sip now, it can be cellared with confidence for five plus years. It makes a perfect match for roast lamb, Osso Buco, and Peking duck!

Good length, weight and intensity; distinctive varietal character; twang of olive on blackcurrant fruit; balanced tannins and oak. Surprise packet.
