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 showcases the superb fruit sourced from the many sub-regions across the Barossa Valley. Parcels of high quality fruit were carefully selected from around 40 growers to produce a seamless blend of varying expressions of Shiraz.

The fruit was fermented and macerated on skins for up to two weeks, with 25% barrel fermentation. Once blended, the wine was transferred into barrels, 50% of which were new American oak, the remainder being older French and American oak, for 15 months before bottling.

A complex and layered wine with fruit intensity and suppleness. Lifted cherry and brooding dark fruit aromas combine seamlessly with sweet chocolate and mocha undertones. An intense, generous and full bodied wine with fine tannins and a soft, supple finish.
