Peter Lehmann Shiraz Wildcard 2006 , Krabi

Paid RM$90 for this bottle of Peter Lehmann Shiraz Wildcard 2006, and it was surprisingly good... Easy drinking, smooth, and full of fruity flavours. This is top-dollar of course as it was room-service price at a Krabi hotel :-) Expect to pay between 5-10 pounds or 10 AUD for it in the UK / Australia. ... The wine has a deep center with a dark red rim. The bouquet shows lashings of classical Barossa Shiraz chocolate and plum aromas, given a gentle life from the well seasoned French oak notes. It is a robustly structured wine, with a mouth-filling, generous fruit clothing its firm muscularity. It finishes firm with powdery tannins. It is a fine example of Barossa Shiraz from a top vintage year.
