A rich and balanced Shiraz, Tempranillo, Mourvèdre and Grenache blend with blackberry, plum, black cherry, cinnamon spice and mocha plushy and silky on the palate. Produced by Peter Lehmann, the first Australian wine industry figure to be appointed to the Order of Australia. Pair with wine-braised beef short-rib and thyme-infused escargot en croute.

Shiraz Tempranillo Mourvèdre Grenache food pairings: tourtière, roast pork, leg of lamb, bison burgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Layers 2017 is fantastic value under $18. Look for layers of dark plum, cherry, earthy florals, dried savoury herbs, savoury spice, menthol and mocha flavours on this full-bodied Shiraz, Tempranillo, Mourvèdre and Grenache red wine blend from the Barossa. Produced by the Peter Lehmann team. Muscular, powerful and delicious. Pair with bison burgers from the grill. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
