Each year, the best of vintage is fashioned into a wine of great distinction.

Peter Lehmann's finest of vintage Cabernet Sauvignon, collated from exceptional, low yielding sites in the Ebenezer and Light Pass, Rosedale, Vinevale and Tanunda sub-regions of Barossa. Over the years, an elite tally of superior vineyards which produce the best Cabernet wine have been identified, many planted over sixty years ago. These older, low yielding sites grow fruit that displays classic lifted cassis and violet characters of great Cabernet Sauvignon. Components are vinified and macerated on skins for up to a fortnight with some partial barrel ferments, followed by pressing and clarification, before maturation in French oak hogsheads for fifteen months.
Deeply coloured with dense centre. Inviting aromas of blackcurrant, cedar box and mint. The palate shows defined Cabernet cassis, chocolates and vanilla, a superb integration of oak and fruit, before a firm, fine grained tannin finish. Mentor is designed to soften and increase in complexity, emerging as a wine of immense power and richness. Great depth of flavour and richness, the ideal accompaniment to goose or game, superb with braised lamb or a fine aged cheddar.
