Peter Lehmann Mentor Cabernet Shiraz Malbec

An exactingly crafted blend that exemplifies the savoury definition and longevity of the understated 2009 vintage, yet with the well-poised and intricately polished fruit profile that defines the modern Peter Lehmann style. Considerable fruit concentration and definition are on show here, capturing the vibrancy of crunchy redcurrant and leaf of cabernet (70% of the blend), the spice and black plums of shiraz (20%) and the earthy undertone of firmly structured malbec. A lingering aftertaste and finely textured tannin chassis promise longevity. $35 at WineStar, No Frills, Aussie Wines, Winelistaustralia, Dan’s and Nillumbik Cellars.
