Peter Lehmann Hill & Valley Barossa Valley Shiraz

Alongside many other large company Barossa shiraz labels at this price (even some from Lehmann), H&V has a mood of authenticity and attention to detail. Small batch winemaking builds accurate fruit definition, layered with lively black cherries, blackberries and black plums, against a backdrop of liquorice and smart toasty, dark chocolate French oak. It will appreciate some years for fine, firm tannins to integrate fruit and oak. $18 at Cellarmasters.
