Wine Note

Peter Lehmann 'Mentor'

Over the years we have identified vineyards that repeatedly produce the best Cabernet wines, many planted over 60 years ago. These older, low yielding vineyards produce fruit that displays the classic lifted cassis and violet characters of great Cabernet. Mentor is fermented and matured in 100% French oak hogsheads, which integrates seamlessly with the powerful flavours and structure of the wine. .Recognising the greatness from a superb vintage, the winemakers chose this Cabernet for the 2004 Mentor, the first of this line to be released as a straight varietal. This is the best Cabernet we make each vintage and our particular dedication to Peter - the founder of Peter Lehmann Wines and ‘Champion of the Barossa’.
It's seriously good, not over the top at all, lovely dense ripe cassis and black cherry with tobacco, cedar, oak on a structured fine palate. Great wine now and will cellar easily for 10 years.
"Very good hue; classic cabernet on both bouquet and palate, oak seamlessly integrated by finishing fermentation in French hogsheads, very good structure and great length. Cork. 14% alc. Rating 96 Drink 2020 "James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2010

"A slow-maturing, long term cabernet that will take years to unravel its layers of deep, dark fruits, polished cedar/vanilla oak and firm, tightly-knit tannin. A floral perfume of raspberries, cassis, plums and fresh bubblegum-like oak precedes a long, tightly knit and finely measured palate saturated with vibrant and persistent flavour.(18.6/95, YTD 2016-2024+) Jeremy Oliver"
