Lambertskirch Saar Kabinett Riesling 2016

Spicy stir fry calls for some Lauer power. I love their off-dry rieslings. This site was very recently replanted and only the second vintage in Kabinett style but already very successful. A youthful, exuberant key lime and stone fruit melange tempered by a mineral-driven poise, with racy but well-integrated acidity. — 23 days ago

Peter Lehmann

VSV 1885 Shiraz 2010

See 2 previous notes. This has shown progressively better at each tasting. An interesting series, the VSV Series (Very Special Vineyard) from Peter Lehmann. In this case the 1885 is planted on its own roots by the Schrapel family in the Ebenezer district since...1885. The 6th generation Ralph Schrapel tends the vines - his signature on the label. A tradition in the Barossa that many are purely grape growers, many of German descent, and not necessarily vignerons. This vineyard is a low yielding 4 acre block. I made brief notes in any event - deep dark Ruby in colour. A classic Barossa palate - black cherry, earthy, dark chocolate flavours with a touch of liquorice. Luscious and mouth filling with softening tannins. Very easy to like and drinking at its peak. A good example of the saying that good wine is made in the vineyard. — 9 days ago
