Geography of the barossa
Comprised of two distinct regions, The Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, and 14 sub-regions, the Barossa valley is unique for its diversity of terrior, topography and mesoclimates. Knitted together like a patchwork quilt, each sub-region displays a rich variety of soil type imparting distinctive flavours and characters into the wines.
The Barossa is one of the only wine regions in Australia to have neighbouring warm and cool climate growing conditions. Barossa Valley enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate characterised by hot dry summers, relatively low rainfall and low humidity, providing perfect conditions for growing grapes. The lower Barossa floor is drier, warmer and is ideally suited to growing iconic full bodied Shiraz. The higher altitude Eden Valley region has a cooler climate with abundant winter rainfall. The soil in Eden Valley is rocky and acidic, with shallow rock and shale that creates world class Rieslings.
Working with growers accross the region
Peter Lehmann Wines works collaboratively with over 100 grower families across the length and breadth of the region, many of whom have been involved with the Peter Lehmann story for decades. Through these strong bonds and generations of working with the region’s finest grape-growers, Peter Lehmann Wines continues to craft a range of premium wines that tell rich stories of people and place.
