2019 Masters Eight Songs Shiraz
The Master’s Collection has been inspired by significant people and moments during
Peter Lehmann’s life. Each one is unique and distinctive, just like the wines themselves.
Peter looked for inspiration in all facets of his life and had a particular love of the arts.
The Eight Songs Shiraz is named after one of his favourite musical works, ‘Eight Songs
for a Mad King’.
After reasonable winter and spring rainfall, soil moisture was adequate during the
growing season and the Barossa’s vineyards exhibited healthy canopies heading into
summer. January and February were warm and dry, with very warm temperatures in
February slowing down the pace of ripening. Vintage really ramped up in March, with the
majority of Barossa Shiraz being picked during this period.
WINE MAKERS NOTES
This Shiraz has a deep crimson in colour with purple hues, rich and fragrant with abundant satsuma plum, blueberry and dusty cedar notes. The palate is all about texture and mouthfeel, with rich ripe plums, dark chocolate and a pure fruited long savoury finish.
