Peter Lehmann Orrock VSV Shiraz 2009


This wine is sourced from a vineyard in the southern Flinders Ranges in South Australia some 200 kilometres north of the Barossa Valley.  The label does not feature a geographical indication.  It reminds though of a classic Barossa Valley style, with ripe, soft and sweet fruited plum and dark cherry characters, coupled with long length and a very balanced expression.  There are no "edges" or extremes here, nor attempts to be overly clever in the winemaking; this wine simply tastes of a wine made sympathetically from high quality physiologically ripe fruit and expresses itself much like a typical Barossa Valley style shiraz.  I enjoyed it very much as a consequence.  Very Good
