About

The ‘Aussie Claret’ pairing of Cabernet and Shiraz is a wine style unique to this country and has always had an affinity with the Barossa Valley.

With his long Barossa history, Dave Lehmann was always destined to try his hand at a Cab/Shiraz. He says he will only release it if the vintage warrants it and the 2010 was one of the best the Barossa has seen in decades.

The 2010 Alexander’s Reward is 75% Cabernet, 25% Shiraz. Make no mistake, this is an imposing wine. Through all the earth-shattering fruit power and luscious oak trimmings, a brightness still cuts through the core, a fine line to walk with this wine style and Lehmann does it so well.

With 95 points from James Halliday, this wine is one for the die-hard Barossa fans; rich, unashamedly potent and full of swagger and charm.

What It Tastes Like

Dense blackcurrent and chocolate, toasty oak and cloves with a pop of red berry fruit from the Shiraz. So decadent, it lolls around the mouth eeking into every crevice. A surprising brightness to the fruit keeps the whole show clipping along and stops it feeling tired or flat. Played with a straight bat. Good, classic Barossa red.
