Natalie's tasting note, score, food pairings and recipes for this wine
Reviewed January 5, 2013 by Natalie MacLean
Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|The first wine Peter Lehmann ever sold when he struck out on his own was called “The Futures” and was sold according to the Bordeaux model; the Futures line of premium Barossa wines are named for that initial offering. As his label states, “My Word is My Bond.” Always the innovator, Lehmann rounds out his Shiraz here not with Viognier, but with the increasingly rare third white variety of Bordeaux, Muscadelle. Bursting with lovely dark fruit and vanilla, along with savoury herbs and floral overtones. There’s tons of ripeness on the palate, with a medium-full body and a nice round texture.
