Stonewell Shiraz is Peter Lehmann Wines best wine of each vintage and one of the world’s great Shiraz. It is the most powerful expression of Shiraz we make from our growers’ vineyards. The pedigree of these vineyards and the knowledge that has been passed from each winemaking generation at Peter Lehmann Wines to the next, assures us these will be wines of great longevity.

The story of Stonewell Shiraz began in 1987 when Peter Lehmann decided to make a special Shiraz - a wine of immense intensity and muscularity that would demand time in the barrel and bottle before release. The wine was named ‘Stonewell’ after the district that he believed best showed the characters admired most in Barossa Shiraz.

This tradition has continued and each vintage the best Shiraz from our legacy of growers’ Barossa vineyards is chosen to create Stonewell. Usually no more than a dozen small, old vineyards are selected each year, the oldest planted in 1885. Located in the harder country, these are some of our lowest yielding vineyards. The berries are small and sparse with crops typically less than 2 tonnes per acre.

Expert Reviews

There is an ever-rising theme of restraint in Stonewell, and the cool January and February of 2008 reinforced this style, picked largely prior to the unforgettable heatwave in early March. The result is one of the great Stonewells of all time, with a tannin structure that is a revelation: superfine, almost mineral in its textural presence, yet with a grip and a control that promise great things in two decades time. There is immense concentration of black fruits, coal steam, liquorice, even a hint of Barossa metwurst, yet it carries with remarkable precision and immense control.

Rating 97 - Drink 2028 - 2038 - Tyson Stelzer,

Impenetrable colour; a flagship wine without excessive baggage and window dressing; pure, ripe and fragrant Barossa fruit, layered, perfumed and attractive in every regard; the palate is densely structured, but far removed from overbearing, with a fine thread of tannins and a long and expansive finish; a lovely fresh wine from a challenging vintage.

Winery Tasting Notes


Dense black centre with a deep garnet rim.


The nose shows lashings of dark plums and chocolate with hints of mint.


A wine of great dignity, its structure is superbly taut, with intense depth of fruit reined in by the firm tannins. As befits a wine made in strictly limited quantities, this is a wine for posterity and may be cellared with confidence.

Food Matching

Savour with rich game dishes, roast beef, and cheese such as Parmigiano Reggiano, aged cheddar or Grana Padana.

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.
