Overview

Peter Lehmann built his winery by defying accepted wisdom, courting near misses and narrow scrapes, and never shirking the opportunity to challenge the norm. The same values exist today with our winemakers treating every wine as a blank canvas and their "palette" consists of fruit from more than 140 growers. These wines are made to capture the colour and fun experienced as Peter Lehmann lived his dream, with all his 'art and soul.

A new twist to the classic Peter Lehmann Semillon. As pioneer and champion of Barossa Semillon, we are committed to showing its beauty and versatility. With the Art ‘n’ Soul Semillon, we present the softer spectrum of Semillon, and add extra “zing” with a splash of Sauvignon Blanc from the cool-climate of the neighbouring Adelaide Hills region.

Expert Reviews

With enough moves and shakes to keep an entire football stadium of fans cheering, this perky little sem is more flexible than a stunt cheerleader! A cunning touch of honeyed sweetness rounds out backflips of fresh lemon zest and crunchy minerality. Bring it on!Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste (MAY/2011)

Good Barossa Semillon has been around for a very long time but it has only been emerging as a classic Australian wine type in recent years. Its evolution has echoed the move away from oak maturation by most makers, allowing the pristine fruit to speak for itself. This extraordinary bargain from Peter Lehmann is a worthy flag-bearer for the new direction. Enticing aromas of lemon sherbet, peaches, grass cuttings and herbs have a savoury, waxy edge. It tastes intense with a light but sustained flavour, finishing long and zippy. Worth buying by the dozen and putting a few bottles away – older examples are delicious. (11% alcohol; screw cap).

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.
