Degustation notes

Very dark ruby colour, an intense bouquet that marries distinctive aromas of very ripe black berries and eucalyptus, which evolve into delicate woody and dark chocolate nuances supported by slightly smoky notes, good concentration on the attack, a dry palate, robust, with good structure, exudes flavours of ripe berries evoking raisins.

Special notes

The people in his area call him the "Baron of Barossa-Valley."" The wine magazine ""Decanter"", has called him nothing less than the ""living legend of Australian wine"". He is Peter Lehmann, son of a Lutheran pastor. Turning 75 this year. His family settled inAustralia five generations ago. But he was the first to enter the wine trade, and at the age of 17. He worked at Yalumba for 13 years, then became Chief Oenologist and Director of Saltram Wines. Under his leadership, the quantity of grapes produced by Saltram went from 400 to over 6000 tonnes per year. Lehmann convinced independant winemakers and won their trust. Which he did not want to destroy when, 27 years before, the owners of the company had told him to purchase fewer grapes due to economic problems.

    Ein Wein der so richtig Freude macht - kräftig aber dennoch auch elegant und harmonisch. Hat wunderbar zu unserem Lamm mit Härdöpfelgratin gepasst!

    Ein Hammer! - Habe mir diesen Wein zu meinem Geburtstag gekauft und wurde nicht enttäuscht - schlicht eine Wucht! Kräftig, aber trotzdem elegant, perfekt zu einem Rindsfilet (und sicher auch zu anderen Grilladen...) - kann ich wärmstens empfehlen

    Ein Wein zum Geniessen - Die Aromen sind äusserst breit gefächert, vor allem Cassis, Zedernholz und Minze treten hervor und eine angenehme rauchige Note. Ein Wein mit viel Kraft und Tiefe, der zu vielen Gelegenheiten passt.

    Super-Wein zum Super-Preis - Geniesse diesen Wein schon seit längeren Jahren. Frühere Jahrgänge waren mit weiteren Traubensorten vermischt (z.B. Malbec). Hinweis dazu findet sich auf der Rückseite der Flasche. Unbedingt probieren!
