Peter Lehmann Stonewell Barossa Valley Shiraz 2013 - Wine

Tasting Notes

This limited release Stonewell Shiraz has aromas of dark, plummy fruit and a touch of chocolate and aniseed. The palate is richly structured with fine tannins and a long, persistent finish. The wine shows distinct flavours of black fruits, dark plums, liquorice, dark chocolate with hints of black pepper.

Production Notes

The grapes were fermented on their skins in static fermenters for two weeks prior to pressing off through a small batch basket press. Following clarification, the wine was aged in French oak hogsheads for 12 months prior to bottling, and was further aged in the cellars before release.

Producer Profile

Peter Lehmann, with 33 vintages already under his belt, started his own winery in 1979, partly as a means of helping with the glut of grapes then afflicting the Barossa. "I'll take your grapes and turn them into wine," he told the desperate growers, many of them conservative farmers of Silesian descent who regarded their old vines as part of their patrimony. "But I'll only be able to pay you when I sell the wine." They gratefully accepted. Without this deal, it is widely thought that the Barossa would have lost a huge chunk of its old vines. The 'Masters' wines are made from the parcels regarded by the winemakers as the best Semillon, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz of the vintage.
