Overview

This wine was named The Black Queen in honour of the most hauntingly famous Black Queen of all, The Queen of Sheba, who describes herself in the book of Solomon as “I am black, (and) comely.” There can be no better description of this wine.

Intensely flavoured Shiraz grapes from old-low yielding vines create this wine inspired by the groundbreaking ‘Sparkling Burgundy’ of the 1950s – one of Australia’s unique contributions to the wine world. Named after the Queen of Sheba, this Black Queen is deep in colour, with aromas of chocolate and dark cherry and full of exotic fruit flavours.

Expert Reviews

The grapes come from the Light Pass district; after conventional fermentation, the wine spent 2 years in used French oak before bottle fermentation and 2 years on lees. It has very good shiraz varietal character, dark brooding fruits layered with spice and licorice, the tannins admirably fine and supple; excellent balance/dosage. Rating 96 - Drink by 2038, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2015).

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Beautifully deep in colour with a persistent fine bead.

Aroma/Palate

The bouquet shows hints of Satsuma plum and black cherry leading to an explosion of dark, exotic fruits on the palate- a very special sparkling red for times of celebration.

Food Matching

The perfect celebration wine- a great party starter and wonderful for a lazy Sunday brunch. Try it with smoked oysters wrapped in bacon and grilled, roast turkey or peking duck pancakes.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In the face of a serious overproduction of grapes and the real possibility of growers facing financial ruin, Peter Lehmann found some investment partners, established a consortium and built the Peter Lehmann Wines winery. It was 1979.The first vintage was processed in 1980 and in 1982 the winery was formally named Peter Lehmann Wines. From then on, its wines have been marketed under the Peter Lehmann Wines label.

As an experienced winemaker, Peter Lehmann was all too aware of the challenges facing a young winery in a competitive market. Growth was well planned, slow and steady.

Initially, the winery facility was built to process fruit purchased from the local growers. Carefully and strategically, the Peter Lehmann Wines operation moved on from the bulk wine market to become a producer of premium bottled wines with a well-deserved international reputation.

As well as purchasing grapes from about 185 local independent growers, Peter Lehmann Wines has its own vineyards, which produce about 2% of its requirements.The famous Barossa wine region is a little over an hour by car north of Adelaide, South Australia’s capital. The Barossa comprises two regions, the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, and these regions encompass a myriad of sub-districts.

The care and consideration which Peter Lehmann Wines brings to the selection of grapes enable the winery to produce a wide range of distinctive, award-winning and internationally acclaimed wines.

Our wines are created from grapes purchased from about 165 carefully selected independent growers as well as grapes grown in the four company-owned vineyards. Many of our growers’ families have worked the same vineyards for five and, in some cases, six generations. These Barossa vignerons tend to around 900 individual vineyards that run the gamut of the Barossa, through Lyndoch, Vine Vale, Light Pass, Stonewell, Greenock, Ebenezer and the Eden Valley.
