8 Songs Shiraz was first made in 1996 with the aim of producing a decisively soft and stylish style of Barossa wine. Sourced from some of the oldest, low-yielding vineyards across the Barossa, this wine has been matured in 100% new French oak hogsheads. The winemaking team seamlessly integrates the opulent fruit and velvety tannins to create a distinctly elegant wine with an abundance of mocha chocolate and dark plum fruit characters.

Expert Reviews

Medium garnet with a bit of purple, the 2012 Shiraz Eight Songs is scented of blackberries, black raspberries and red currants with hints of green peppercorns, garrigue and earth. Medium to full-bodied with plenty of lively black and red berry flavors on offer in the mouth, it has a good firm structure and long, lifted finish. Rataing 90+ - Drink by 2023, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (OCT/2015).

Winery Tasting Notes


This 2012 Shiraz is deep red in colour with a black core.


Displays a bouquet of charcoal chocolate notes with dark plum and mocha.


True to the bouquet, this wine finishes with soft velvety tannins and rich opulent fruit on the palate.

Cellaring Potential

While drinking beautifully now, you may wish to put it away in the cellar for another five years or so during which time it will soften further and become a little more complex.

Food Matching

8 Songs Shiraz sings with rare roast beef, rich casseroles, beef and game pies, and of course, a great aged cheddar.

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.
