Peter Lehmann 2002 "The Mentor"

Chief Winemaker, Andrew Wigan, has proclaimed the 2002 vintage
as the greatest Barossa Cabernet vintage of his 30 year
winemaking career.
Blend: 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 10% Shiraz,
8% Malbec.
Fruit source: The Stonewell, Ebenezer and Light Pass districts
of the Barossa Valley.
Colour: Dense black centre with a dark red/garnet rim.
Bouquet: An exciting mélange of mixed spice, wild violets,
hints of mint and black currants.
Palate: The richness and depth of the fruit is a seamless
blend. A wine of great power and length, it shows a
superb balance between the fruit and the
fine-grained tannins. A distinguished wine of great
dignity and is only a very limited release.
Wood: Fermented and thence matured for 18 months in
new French oak hogsheads.
Cellaring: It can be cellared with confidence for a further 10
plus years.
Alc/Vol: 14.0%
