Overview

Peter Lehmann mentored countless people over his 50-year career, and this wine is named in his honour.

Great Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon has layers of texture and flavour. By drawing fruit from a number of Barossa sub-regions – each with their own unique terroir – Mentor Cabernet captures immense varietal definition with added complexity of old vine, low-yielding fruit matured in 100% French oak barrels.

Mentor is made as the best expression of Barossa Cabernet of vintage, with addition of small portions of complementary varieties in certain years.

Mentor growers keep yields low and produce fruit that displays classic lifted cassis and violet characters.

Expert Reviews

A fine, deeply layered and seamless Bordeaux blend of considerable finesse whose heady aromas of violets, cassis and pure small black and red berries are lifted by fragrant scents of fine grained French oak. It's long and elegant, with a gentle, fine-grained spine beneath its dark, plush, plummy and faintly meaty palate of briary furit. Very finely balanced. Rating 95 - Jeremy Oliver, Austalian Wine Annual 2014

Bright crimson-purple of medium depth; the complex array of red and black fruits are hemmed in to a degree by dry tannins, and it's far from certain whether the fruit or the tannins will prevail in the long run. My points are fence sitting. Rating 91 - Drink by 2025 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

This is our best cabernet of vintage and is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence.

Food Matching

Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to duck, goose and game dishes. It is superb with oxtail, braised lamb shanks and wonderful with a fine aged cheddar.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In the face of a serious overproduction of grapes and the real possibility of growers facing financial ruin, Peter Lehmann found some investment partners, established a consortium and built the Peter Lehmann Wines winery. It was 1979.The first vintage was processed in 1980 and in 1982 the winery was formally named Peter Lehmann Wines. From then on, its wines have been marketed under the Peter Lehmann Wines label.

As an experienced winemaker, Peter Lehmann was all too aware of the challenges facing a young winery in a competitive market. Growth was well planned, slow and steady.

Initially, the winery facility was built to process fruit purchased from the local growers. Carefully and strategically, the Peter Lehmann Wines operation moved on from the bulk wine market to become a producer of premium bottled wines with a well-deserved international reputation.

As well as purchasing grapes from about 185 local independent growers, Peter Lehmann Wines has its own vineyards, which produce about 2% of its requirements.The famous Barossa wine region is a little over an hour by car north of Adelaide, South Australia’s capital. The Barossa comprises two regions, the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, and these regions encompass a myriad of sub-districts.

The care and consideration which Peter Lehmann Wines brings to the selection of grapes enable the winery to produce a wide range of distinctive, award-winning and internationally acclaimed wines.

Our wines are created from grapes purchased from about 165 carefully selected independent growers as well as grapes grown in the four company-owned vineyards. Many of our growers’ families have worked the same vineyards for five and, in some cases, six generations. These Barossa vignerons tend to around 900 individual vineyards that run the gamut of the Barossa, through Lyndoch, Vine Vale, Light Pass, Stonewell, Greenock, Ebenezer and the Eden Valley.
