Peter Lehmann The Barossan Shiraz 2016

With its faux leatherette label, along with carrying both the name of quite possibly the Barossa Valley's most famous winemaker AND perhaps claiming itself as a regional standard bearer through use of the definite article, the Barossan sure has much to live up to. 

Fortunately for fans of both PLW and the region, the wine won't fail to delight. It's a rich and hearty wine, offering toasted nuts and deep set Mulberry. 

It's a wine not shy of the oak that has supported its development, and is complimented by choc-mocha and hazelnut elements. It's delicate in the way it gently ebbs along to its finish. A good marker for the region. 91
