Peter Lehmann Portrait Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
Smooth and moderately generous, with a sweetly oaked, chocolatey, vanilla and mocha-like bouquet of cassis, dark plums and briar backed by a whiff of coconut. It's juicy and forward, with an initially sweet presence of fruit that extends modestly over a fine, loose-knit spine towards a balanced, if slightly green-edged finish.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Bright colour, with good depth; a more than useful commercial Cabernet Sauvignon (as per the back label), all the emphasis on the mix of juicy red and black fruits; ready right now, but will hold for a couple of years.

Distinctly Barossa (dark chocolate and plums) and distinctly cabernet (leaf, mint, capsicum and firm, fine tannins), it will benefit from a few years in the cellar to soften and build.

Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
Underpinned by a fine backbone, this fragrant young cabernet has a fresh, violet-like bouquet of cassis, blackberries and plums knit with cedar/chocolate/vanilla oak and backed by a hint of dried herbs. It's smooth and juicy, ripe and jammy, with a marginally hollow, under and over-ripened palate that finishes a fraction short.

Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
Honest and even, likely to develop well, revealing moderately intense aromas of dark berries, dark plums and olives backed by cedary oak and a dusty hint of dried herbs, it's long, smooth and elegant, with a firmish but pliant spine beneath its juicy but reserved expression of cassis, blackberries and chocolate oak, finishing with just a hint of currant.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2006 Vintage) says
These Peter Lehmann cabernets are deceptively good -and if you keep them in a cool, dark place for a year or two they tend to taste even better. This is quite remarkable. It's our kind of wine - structured, complex, easy to drink and yet worth commenting on. It tastes of chocolate and blackberries and has lots of fine, dry length of flavour, and though you wouldn't call it rich you'd never call it lacking. You can quaff this or you can serve it up with a fancy roast on a Saturday night. Elegant and complete.
