Tempranillo is a Spanish red grape variety that plays the major role in the great red wines of Rioja and Ribera del Duero in northern Spain. It produces deeply coloured, richly flavoured red wines that match robust red meat dishes or a sharply flavoured Cheddar. These wines are characterised by dark black cherry flavours and finish with lovely chalky tannins making them great food wines. There are similarities between these two famous Spanish regions to the Barossa and it seems as if Tempranillo has found another natural home on the Barossa floor.

Expert Reviews

The careful use of the word 'Barossa' suggests the wine comes in whole or part from the Eden Valley, with its almost citrussy (I often see elements of this with tempranillo) juicy red fruits supported by appropriate tannins. Nice wine. James Halliday, Rating 90, 15th September 2014

Winery Tasting Notes

The exceptional 2012 vintage in the Barossa has produced an outstanding Tempranillo. The colour is typically deep, leading to a bouquet of dark plum and cherry and finishing with characteristically firm, chalky tannins. This is a full bodied red wine suited to rustic, red meat dishes and it certainly has the potential to age beautifully in the bottle for a number of years. It is recommended that the wine be decanted 4 or 5 hours before serving to allow it to breathe and open up.

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.
