The Peter Lehmann Art ‘n’ Soul Shiraz Cabernet shows excellent bright red hues and a touch of leafiness from the Cabernet as well as some dark mulberry notes. The palate shows fruit richness and finishes with firm but soft tannins. While drinking beautifully now it can be aged for 3-5 years if desired.
Peter Lehmann made his name with these varieties, and this classic Australian blend of Barossa’s flagship red varieties continues the tradition he set. Aromatic Cabernet meets its match here with the richness of Shiraz.
Shiraz and Cabernet combine in this classic Australian blend. Both varieties are synonymous with Peter Lehmann as he evolved their individual style over 30 years of winemaking experience. Blending them together produces a classic Australian wine with great balance and flavour showing the integrity of pure Barossa and the stewardship of our winemakers.
The Peter Lehmann Art ‘n’ Soul Shiraz Cabernet 2013 vintage was our earliest and one of the driest and quickest for many years. The weather remained warm to hot throughout but without any extended heat waves and the unusually small crop has produced highly coloured, richly structured red wines destined for many years in the cellaran outstanding red wine vintage.
The grapes were crushed and fermented on skins for seven days prior to pressing off. The wine was then aged in a mixture of French and American hogsheads for 12 months to give the wine extra complexity and structure.
Beautifully complementary with Steak and Guinness Pie, rare roast beef or a mature Cheddar.
