Overview

The Peter Lehmann story is legendary in how the man saved numerous growers from losing their livelihood creating the winery that now bears his name. Years after the fact the wines from this highly respected winery continue to represent excellent value with their generous flavor profiles. The current Peter Lehman Barossa Shiraz 2002 could easily be debated as one of the finest we have tried in quite a number of years. Peter Lehman Barossa Shiraz 2002 has a deep crimson color as well as a deep crimson hue. The nose combines subtle confectionary notes as well as all spice and chocolate notes fused into dark plum fruit – all with good lift and pitch aromatically. Flavors of licorice, chocolate and spicy dark plum fruit dominate with a seamless palate structure that showcases terrific depth and balance to the fruit with excellent hang time and persistence backed with fine-grained tannins. This highlights the strength of the great 2002 vintage with its exceptional vibrant fruit base and harmonious tannin and acid structure.

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.
