Expert Reviews

Rating 92 - Jane Faulkner, Australian Wine Companion Published 01 August 2017

Great colour with barely a hint of currants and cassis, menthol and the blackest licorice as it bolds down savoury route. Full-bodied and here's the rub, drying tannins blocking this. You wouldn't drink it without a rich, juicy meaty dish.

Winery Tasting Notes

This limited release is our best Barossa Cabernet of vintage. The 2013 Mentor is a rich, deeply coloured wine that exhibits a bouquet of violet and cassis and a touch of dark chocolate. The palate is rich and structured with a classic Barossa Cabernet tannin, followed by a long finish balanced by blue fruits and cassis. The 2013 Mentor is a magnificent wine that can be confidently cellared until 2033.

The 2013 Mentor is ideally matched with richer dishes such as duck, goose and game. Enjoy 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.
