Peter Lehmann Eight Songs Shiraz 2004

The first cellar door I visited in the Barossa was PLW - great CD, more like a boutique hotel and conference centre than some cellar doors, but the legend behind the name and man makes it a must see in my book.

Everything I like about Barossan Shiraz - and this is a blend of Marananga and Light Pass fruit.  Nigh the perfect wine for Easter. Aromas of chocolate and plump juicy berry fruit invade your nasal passage. In the mouth: unctuous.  Mocha, integrated oak, plush - like sinking into a mocha scented pillow - the wine sinks into you.

Some fine tannin present, a touch of spice and a giving length.  Well balanced, gloriously giving and it just got better over the (frighteningly short) duration it was open for.
