Reviews and Ratings

Vera Czerny rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This wine completely charmed me, ever since I first tasted it.The ratio of each grape variety in the blend changes every vintage, but the quality never does - Peter Lehmann's Clancy's is a tribute to famous Barossa Shiraz.

Rated high repeatedly by prestigious wine critiques around the world - this is truly exceptional quality red wine, priced very fairly.

Black cherry and ripe plums is the first aroma notes I noticed, with a touch of chocolate. Soft, medium bodied red is perfectly balanced and not overpowering. The oak is not overpowering, in a beautiful harmony with the wine. You reach easily for a second glass! Its price in USA is around $ 14-15.

Medium - Full body,
Aged in oak
Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Shiraz blend is another one of my favorite 'go-to' wines. I really enjoy this wine with steak, and meats done on the grill. Big ripe fruits and aromas of spice, oak and a hint of chocolate. It's a great value wine and I will be picking up another bottle soon.
