I have decided to experiment with a variety of different red wines. I have never really been an enthusiast about types of wine, except for knowing that I enjoy Shiraz and Merlot. For those who don't know what that is, it is a variety of grape.
Anyway, I thought I would start to write a series of new reviews on a variety of different red wines.
So, here goes.
Peter Lehmann's 'Futures', a 2011 Shiraz from the Barossa Valley.

Recent philosophising helped me to be immediately attracted by the stamp 'My word is my bond' on the front label, as well as the fact that the wine was reduced in price (from $27 to $23), Peter Lehmann's 2011 'Futures' is the first wine that I will ever review.
Now, a quick disclaimer: although these are my words, I may later change my mind. However, for now, my word is my bond, and the word is WINE; so if you're whining about it, why not have some cheese with that whine? Anyway, banter aside, it tastes delicious.
The first sip was stunning, like a zap to my throat and head, almost waking me and my taste buds up, while transforming me into the dreamy wine consciousness almost instantly. I am now on my third glass and seem to struggle with spelling third... or is it thrid?
This is a really good wine. The after taste mellows nicely and lingers for quite some time. Top notch. I can honestly say that this is the best wine that I have ever reviewed. However, there are many more to go.
Check back later for more wine reviews and in the end I will provide a summary of some of the best randomly selected wines that I have chosen to review.
