Peter Lehmann 'Portrait'

Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009

Australia Red

Barossa 75cl

Peter Lehmann has always made good Cabernet, and this raises an interesting point, i bought a case of 1992 Cabernet from Oddbins in probably 1995, it was 6.99, since then the exchange rate has pretty much halved, duty has gone up by well over a 1 a bottle and Vat has gone up, let alone cost of grapes, materials, shipping etc etc, and so 16 years on it's 10.49, what a bargain !!It is frustrating that so many people do not see this, a pint of beer back then was what 1.50 and it's now c3.50..anyhow back to the wine.
It has a lovely perfumed nose, morello cherry, almond, cassis and oak. Bright and vibrant on the palate with lovely sweet berry fruits, integrated oak, good acidity and ripe tannins. Beautifully balanced with such lovely ripe fruit, it coped admirably with a beef madras, drink now or cellar over the next 5+ years. Fabulous value!!
