Peter Lehmann, Layers Red 2014
By incorporating grape varieties that are fairly new to the Barossa Valley, and using good old Shiraz as a base, Lehmann has acheived a multi-dimensional wine loaded with red and black fruits. Herb and spice aromas lead into a palate of really ripe, sweet fruit with a vanilla backbone. On the finish, further ripe fruit flavours of strawberry, raspberry and blackberry mingle with spicy black pepper. Drink with rich casseroles or fruity cheeses.
