Overview

The Masters wines are the top tier wines of Peter Lehmann’s original classic Barossa varietals, made for the long haul and released with bottle age to capture their full potential. These wines are named after a person who, or an event that, has played an intrinsic role in the Peter Lehmann story.

‘Eight Songs for A Mad King’ is one of Peter Lehmann’s favourite vocal ensemble musical works, which he loved for its soft harmonies. This work inspired him to create Eight Songs Shiraz, first made in 1996. Peter Lehamnn’s aim was to produce a soft and stylish Barossa wine.

Expert Reviews

Rating 93 - Jane Faulkner, Australian Wine Companion Published 01 August 2018

Robust and opulent as both vintage and the style dictate with a flurry of dark fruit, a spice temple of flavours especially licorice and tamarind, roasted meat juices, which all add depth and complexity. Full-bodied, ripe and powerful tannins and noticeable French oak that needs time to settle. Should do as this will last some distance.

Winery Tasting Notes

This classic Barossa Shiraz is deep in colour with a vibrant red hue. Its nose displays notes of perfumed dark chocolate, coffee and mocha, along with a hint of cherry and raspberry. The wine’s palate is soft and round featuring blueberries followed by a savoury, chocolate finish. This is an outstanding red wine which will cellar

exceptionally well for the next 25 years.

Pairs beautifully with rare roast beef, as well as rich casseroles, beef and game pies. Or for a lighter alternative,

enjoy a glass with aged cheddar and crackers

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.
