A rare vintage fortified wine released from the Peter Lehmann Wines Barossa Cellar.

We maintain the tradition of producing a few barrels of fortified wine from each vintage, laying the bottled contents to rest and mature before release. A rare vintage fortified wine released from Peter Lehmann's Barossa cellars.

The reference to ‘AD2020’ is a tribute to an enduring tradition since our founding in 1979. The wines are labelled with both their vintage and what we believe to be their optimum maturity of 21 years – commonly associated with final entry into adulthood.

Expert Reviews

Fully developed red; it is extraordinary that a 12-year-old vintage port can be purchased for this price; it is fairly sweet on the mid-palate, but well and truly redeemed by its racy, spicy finish. Now or in 2019. Rating 92 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes


The colour has matured to a bright garnet and is brick red on the edges.


The nose has enticing hints of Christmas cake, liquorice and raisin with a hint of spirit in the background.


Whilst richly mouthfilling, it has a taut structure and finishes remarkably velvety, spicy & dry. A treasure of a wine.

Food Matching

This wine will benefit from decanting prior to serving after a splendid dinner and served with stilton and freshly cracked walnuts, home made fruit cake or delicious chocolates.

Grape Varietals

A blend of 55% Shiraz and 45% Touriga Nacional, the great Portuguese variety.

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.
