The Peter Lehmann Portrait Barossa Shiraz represents the heart of Barossa. Fruit from more than 60 growers across the breadth of the region make up the final blend, affording consistency to the original Peter Lehmann style: robust and generous.
Peter Lehmann Portrait Barossa Shiraz is made in the tradition of the very first Peter Lehmann wine, and represents the heart of Peter’s Barossa. Fruit from more than 60 growers across the length and breadth of the Barossa makes up the final blend, affording consistency to the original Peter Lehmann style: robust and generous.
Several of these vineyards are more than 100 years old. Yet age alone doesn’t make a great wine – it is how the vineyard is managed. The winemakers and growers work together year round to “grow better wine.”
The monumental 2013 red wine vintage in the Barossa has produced a Shiraz with deep colour and a bouquet of dark forest fruits with a hint of chocolate and vanilla in the background. This is a full bodied, richly flavoured wine with soft, velvet tannins and while drinking beautifully now can be cellared with confidence for another 5-10 years if so desired.
Fruit was fermented on skins for ten days. Following pressing, clarification and blending, the wine was matured in French and American oak hogsheads for 12 months prior to bottling.
Try it with a good steak, barbecued quail, roast beef or a tasty Cheddar.
