Shiraz and Grenache each bring distinct character in this delightfully lifted blend. The lifted aromatic flavours of Grenache bring softness and elegance to the richness of Shiraz.
- SA - Barossa

An elegant, refreshing and friendly BBQ quaffer, with sufficient body to build a long finish. True to the season, it’s a particularly spicy Shiraz Grenache, laced with pink pepper, fresh rhubarb, raspberry and strawberry fruit. Rating 90 - Tyson Stelzer, Wine Taste Weekly (22/JUN/2013)
Peter Lehmann has lead a colourful life and his Art ‘n’ Soul label reflects that journey. 2011 was a cool year demonstrated in this gentle, almost delicate wine, one word not normally associated with Peter Lehmann or his reds. Fresh raspberry and bright cherry aromas with a whiff of spicy complexity lead to a medium-weight, yet generously flavoured palate. The shiraz gives structural support and extends the finish, while the Grenache adds an enticing juiciness to the wine. Drink soon with pork and fennel sausages. Gourmet Traveller Wine (JUN-JUL/2013)
"The cool Barossa vintage gave shiraz and grenache unusal perfume, even in lower priced wines like this. There's a floral lift to berry aromas, and a thread of rich, earthy complexity. It tastes juicy and direct. No need for ageing. Enjoy with good sausages and minced lamb pies." Ralph Kyte-Powell, Uncorked, Melbourne Age (16/APR/2013)
From a smart bargain Barossa range, this is a medium bodied, fruit-forward, fragrant blend which suits a varied range of foods because of its subtle, dual variety spice and natural sweetness. Tony Love, DAily Telegraph, Sydney, Best Weekend (20/APR/2013)
"This is pretty tasty. And very good value. Raspberry, kirsch, aniseed, some plumpness to the mid-palate but grainy and earthen and interesting through the finish. Grenache is only 13 percent of the blend but it plays a key role. It’s fantastic really, all things considered." Rating 89 - campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front (20/MAR/2013)
Wine match to Moroccan Chicken Bake - "This dish is all about the sweet spice flavours generated from the tomatoes and capsicums baking down, jousting with the salty and savoury olives and chick peas in the finish. Oh, and that subtle lick of honey as well. A wine that shows a little of all these is just the ticket."Michelle Southam, Daily Telegraph (16/APR/2013)
Winery Tasting Notes
A deep, vibrant red colour
A bouquet of dark red fruits and a touch of background aniseed
This a richly flavoured, fruit driven wine with great aromatics and a beautifully soft finish.
The youthful freshness of this wine makes for perfect lunchtime drinking. Wonderful with Mediterranean style dishes such as pizza, pasta or chicken. Also good with a spicy barbecued sausage in fresh bread.
