Peter Lehmann's Barossa Shiraz 2012
If you were to paint a portrait of Peter Lehmann it would have real depth and character, just like the man himself.
For his style and skill as a winemaker, and for his backing of the Barossa and its growers, Peter Lehmann has become a living legend in the Barossa.
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.
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.
