Expert Reviews

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 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.
