  • No formal notes: deep, packed with fruit.

  • Absolutely a powerhouse! Tons of muscle coated with dark chocolate...showing a length that could go another 10

    Great start, lots of chocolate coated dark fruit and not much spice, but a great length mid palate that turns to silk on the 60 second finish..

    Where can I get more?

  • Dark chocolate , serious black plums and black currants with some smoky licourice and tar. However , v smooth restraint yet structured as a barista should be. But classic with power without being ott. Some incense and sandalwood oak as well.

  • Martin's Birthday Dinner aka Shiraz Night (Sixty 40, Rochester Mall, Singapore): Like the 2001 Jim Barry Armagh that preceded it, this was opened for some 5 hours before service. However, while the former wine seemed advanced and drank beautifully, this still had a sense that its best years are some way ahead of it. I liked the nose. It was rather sweeter and more primary than the other wines, but was certainly not over-the-top with its deep aromas of dark cherries, blackberries tossed together with a bit of spice and some slightly green bits of eucalyptus and menthol. Nice. Like the nose the palate was also the biggest amongst the wines - we all had no problem identifying it as a Barossa. It had deep flavours of blueberries and plums still showing a primary edge to them, but this was certainly well-crafted, with a good sense of structure and balance lent to it by a really well-integrated frame of powdery tannins and nice acidity integration. A long finish then had a little spice, earth and mineral nestling amidst the wine's blue fruited notes. This was very nice, but it seems to still be in its adolescence. I would wait another 5-6 years on the one bottle I have in my cellar.

  • Rich, almost port-like. Great dark colour. Still youthful with plenty of years on it.

    (Peter Lehmann Stonewell Shiraz) A big nose here, full of intense, ripe fruit, which although not particularly hot or diffuse does have a rather volatile edge. The palate has a the same dark, brawny, spicy, chocolate-tinged fruit, with a round and creamy substance. A substantial wine, with good tannins underneath the fruit. Considering it has a few years under its belt already it still seems very youthful. Impressive, with great potential.

    (Peter Lehmann Stonewell Shiraz (Barossa)) Another look at this wine which I tasted at the 2009 Australia Day Tasting just a week or two ago. Big, sweet, fruit gum, meaty and chocolatey fruit on the nose. On the palate, big, sweet, dense fruit. There's a lot of structure underneath it all too. A very full-on style for sure, and in need of cellar time, but there is a lot of potential here.
