Overview

The Hill & Valley Series wines honour the greatness of our growers' vineyards that have defined quality at Peter Lehmann Wines since our foundation in 1979.

Each vintage we keep certain parcels of fruit separate and release them as individual wines. We believe these wines to be a true expression of the varietal characters and unique terroir of the vineyards from which they are made.

The H&V Cabernet from Barossa Valley is world-class, displaying all the rich cassis and mint so admired of the variety, but with a distinctive Barossa character that makes it fulfilling and satisfying.

Expert Reviews

"A wine you should look out for. It tastes good from the start but the longer you sit with it, the more impressive it becomes. This tastes of blackberry and cocoa, chocolate and that trademark cabernet dustiness. Grainy tannin of deceptive insistence. A little bitterness but hey, that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. It’s a chocolatey bitterness anyway. Tip top balance." Rating 91 - - Campbell Mattinson Wine Front 5 November 2012

Colour

The colour is deep, black cherry.

Aroma

A bouquet redolent of black currants and violets.

Palate

The palate is richly structured showing great Cabernet flavour and a soft, fined grained tannin finish.

Cellaring Potential

The wine drinks beautifully now but can be cellared with confidence for a few more years if so desired.

This wine is a superb accompaniment to beef, rich game dishes or a good Cheddar cheese.

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.
