2016 Peter Lehmann Shiraz "The Barossan", Barossa Valley
100% Syrah/Shiraz. The Barossan highlights the outstanding Shiraz sourced from the many fabled sub-regions across the Barossa Valley. A selection of the area's key growers have shared their passion and pristine fruit to create this quintessential Barossa Shiraz.
An intense and complex wine with layers of ripe plum, dark cherry, sweet spice and mocha on the nose. An intense, generous and full bodied wine with fine tannins and a soft, supple finish.
Crafted by the next generation of Peter Lehmann winemakers, 'The Barossan' showcases the superb fruit sourced from many of the fabled Barossa Valley sub-regions. Parcels of high quality fruit were carefully selected from around 40 growers renowned for their skill to produce a quintessentially Barossan Shiraz.
A proportion of the grapes were fermented in oak barrels while the rest were fermented in stainless steel tanks. Following fermentation, the wine was left to macerate on skins for around two weeks to enhance the tannin structure. Once blended, the wine was matured in a combination of French and American 300 litre hogsheads for 12 months before bottling.
Peter Lehmann, with 33 vintages already under his belt, started his own winery in 1979, partly as a means of helping with the glut of grapes then afflicting the Barossa. "I'll take your grapes and turn them into wine," he told the desperate growers, many of them conservative farmers of Silesian descent who regarded their old vines as part of their patrimony. "But I'll only be able to pay you when I sell the wine." They gratefully accepted. Without this deal, it is widely thought that the Barossa would have lost a huge chunk of its old vines. Crafted by the next generation of Peter Lehmann winemakers, ‘The Barossan’ range highlights the outstanding fruit sourced from the many fabled sub-regions across the Barossa Valley.
