Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

A delicate pale lemon colour.

Aroma

The wine shows fresh white peach, a hint of fig and some barrel complexity on the nose.

Palate

It is a beautifully balanced and restrained wine with excellent soft fruit definition: a stylish and elegant face of Chardonnay.

Cellaring Potential

This wine in its vibrant youth, or with careful cellaring, it will continue to develop in the bottle for a further 5 years.

Food Matching

It makes a splendid accompaniment to roast chicken or pork & creamy pasta dishes.

Vintage Condition

The 2009 vintage started early with a week of hot weather. Following this, the weather settled down to an extended spell of warm, dry days & cool nights producing wines with excellent colour & flavour. 15% of the fruit underwent wild ferment in new French oak hogsheads, the balance was fermented cold in stainless steel, then the components were matured for a further 6 months on yeast lees.

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.
