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 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.

Winery Tasting Notes

This limited release is our best Cabernet of vintage and the cool conditions experienced in 2011 have accentuated the varietal characteristics.

Colour/Aroma

The colour is deep, leading to a bouquet of black forest fruits and a touch of green leaf.

Palate

The palate shows the typical firmness of Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon and finishes with great length- a wine of breeding which can be cellared with

confidence for another 8-10 years.

Food Matching

Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to richer dishes such as duck, goose and game - try it with Peking duck pancakes, grilled spicy Italian sausages or venison pie.

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.
