Peter Lehmann 2002 Eight Songs Shiraz

Peter Lehmann Website Tasting Notes

Colour: Dense black with a garnet rim.
Bouquet: Dark chocolate-dipped ripe plum aromas with a hint
of smokiness.
Palate: Reflects the superb quality of the 2002 red wine
vintage. It has deep, rich black berry fruits with
lashings of chocolate reined in by soft tannins.
Shiraz at its voluptuous best, with a deliciously
velvet mouth feel.
The Vintage: 2002 was the coolest Barossa vintage on record.
The reds are densely coloured with exceptional fruit
concentration and structure.
Vineyards: Selected high quality, low yielding Shiraz vineyards
of the north western districts of the Barossa Valley.
Oak: Fermented and thence matured for 18 months in
new French oak hogsheads.
Cellaring: Very approachable now, and will continue to develop
in the bottle over the next 8-10 years.
Alc/Vol: 14.5%

Our Price: $29 per bottle
