Peter Lehmann Wines works with over 140 growers across the length and breadth of the Barossa Valley region, with access to over 750 individual vineyard sites. The fruit for this wine was sourced from premium vineyard sites across the region.

The 2014 vintage started in very hot weather but was interrupted by two days of heavy rain in mid February after which the weather settled down and the region experienced wonderful Indian summer conditions for the remainder of the vintage. This allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly, producing wines of exceptional quality.

Each variety is individually fermented to dryness on skins then matured in old French and American oak for six months prior to bottling under screwcap to ensure consistency of quality.

The colour is vibrant red with a burst of dark cherry and spice on the bouquet leading to a softly textured finish. Shiraz delivers fruit depth and structure, while the Tempranillo is firm and savoury. Mourvedre brings a wild earthiness and all are bound together by the aromatic and spicy nature of Grenache which softens the palate.

Peter Lehmann, a member of the Order of Australia and the original Baron of the Barossa, and a legend of Australian wine. He helped shape the industry over seven decades.

Behind the legend is a never-say-die attitude, a sharp wit and an intrinsic gift for winemaking. Peter was born in the Barossa village of Angaston in 1930, the fifth generation of one of Barossa�s pioneering families.

Peter Lehmann Wines was established primarily for the grape growers of the Barossa. Company vineyards account for less than two per cent of total production, and the winery would not exist without the 140 family farmers that supply fruit from all corners of the region.

Most growers are small-scale vignerons, with an average of 20 � 70 acres of vines, providing fruit of great individual character.

Viticulturist Tony Marshall works closely with the growers to consistently improve quality. Every grower understands they are making wine � not just growing grapes.It is a tight-knit family that gets together every year in November to celebrate the new wines of the year�s vintage.
