Peter Lehmann, “Clancy’s”, Barossa, 2002 ($16) – A blend of 54% Shiraz, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Garnet color, bell pepper and eucalyptus aromas are more like Cabernet Sauvignon, but there is an undercurrent of plum from the Shiraz, nicely balanced plum fruit with bell pepper flavors and soft tannins. Very good now and will maintain for 2-3 more years in the cellar. An unexpected pleasure. Score: 8.5/10.

I’m quite a fan of the Peter Lehmann range, good value for money across the board. Although it must be said that this Clancy was definitely helped along by the exceptional ’02 vintage for reds in the Barossa.
