THE LEGENDARY PETER LEHMANN CHAMPIONED A CAUSE THAT SAVED THE LIVELIHOODS OF THE GROWERS AND THEIR FAMILIES.
Following the boom of the early 1970s, the late ‘70s were difficult times for the Barossa wine grape growing community. The now legendary Peter Lehmann championed a cause that saved the livelihoods of the growers and their families. So it was by building the winery he made a commitment to the region’s growers – business was done with a handshake, and Peter’s word was his bond.
It is a continuation of these deep and longstanding relationships with grape-growing families that has allowed the Peter Lehmann winemakers to craft this exceptional wine. With unrivalled access to the best fruit of the region, we have crafted an exceptional example of Barossa Shiraz.
The Barossa has a long history and distinguished heritage and has been synonymous with winemaking since the European settlers first arrived in 1836. Barossa has a 170-year-old tradition of producing Australia’s finest Shiraz and some of the oldest vines in the world. Early German and English settlers discovered that Shiraz flourished in the region and produced excellent quality wine.
