2021 THE Bond Shiraz
With his word as his bond, many growers in the Barossa sold fruit to Peter Lehmann on a handshake agreement; many of which are still honoured today. These longstanding relationships give us unrivalled access to some of the finest quality grapes across the length and breadth of the region to craft our wines. Following a period of uncertainty, Peter Lehmann Wines was born to preserve a winemaking community, and save it from detriment during the great fruit surplus of the late 1970s. The Bond is created to honour Peter and his promise.
A fullbodied Barossa Shiraz, this wine is made from premium parcels of fruit, and barrel aged for added complexity of flavour, mouthfeel and aged character.
WINE MAKERS NOTES
A youthful dark purple colour with bright edge. Displaying aromas of mocha and aniseed with a fullbodied palate — generous with toasted oak and vanilla notes, derived from time maturing in barrel. Along with vibrant fruit flavours, this wine has a smooth mouth feel and soft finish. Ready to enjoy fresh, or can be cellared until 2024. This Barossa Valley Shiraz is well-suited to a lazy Sunday barbecue with friends and family, or accompanies extraordinarily well with slow cooked braised meats.
