Peter Lehmann Stonewell Shiraz 1998

92 points

Barossa Valley, South Australia. 14.5%

Surprising touch of mercaptan aroma.

A close knit Barossa shiraz that has only recently started to mellow. Nice balance, not overtly sweet like some, or too dolled up with added acid and Am oak like some.

That said while it’s quite correct it isn’t that exciting. For the price and vintage I had hopes of something a bit more interesting.
