Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour is a vibrant magenta.

Aroma

The wine has lashings of fresh raspberries and cherries on the nose.

Palate

It is a refreshingly aromatic style with delightful summer berry flavours and finishes crisply dry.

Vintage Condition

The 2010 vintage began in early Feb after a good winter & spring rains. The weather was warm and stable throughout Feb & March, which has resulted in an excellent vintage for most varieties. The wine was run off the red grape skins early and cold fermented, thus its lively colour and delicious aromas of freshly picked raspberries.

Winemaking Note

We choose to use Grenache only from old, dry grown, low yielding bush vines. Their tiny bunches produce the delicious soft berry fruits and balancing acidity we highly prize when making our Rosé. Once the fruit is harvested, it needs an eye to detail and watchful winemaking to ensure we create a wine of clarity and excellent structure. The wine was run off the red grape skins early and cold fermented, thus its lively colour and delicious aromas of freshly picked raspberries.

Food Matching

Serve chilled. A wine for all seasons. Perfect with the Peter Lehmann Weighbridge platter. Delicious with fresh figs, prosciutto and goat’s cheese, and a wonderful accompaniment for Thai foods.

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.
