LEHMANN SHIRAZ STONEWELL 15
This is a special wine for long term cellaring and it also makes an impressive special occasion wine. It tastes dry, smooth and full bodied with very ripe, rich flavours of concentrated blackcurrant juice and jam notes, underpinned by powerful tannins and weight. Stonewell was first made in 1987 and named after the Barossan wine district that the late Peter Lehmann held in the highest regard. The small black grapes from this area in the Barossa create the deep richness of flavour in Stonewell.
The grapes in this wine were fermented and macerated for two weeks with a portion of barrel fermentation and followed by 18 months aging in French oak hogsheads. This wine drinks well now and will age for well over a decade in well chosen cellaring conditions.
