Peter Lehmann 8 Songs Shiraz 2013 (Barossa Valley Australia)

26.25

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.  Peter sadly passed away in 2013 but his legacy lives on in the Peter Lehman Winery.

His Shiraz is very deep in colour with a blue-red hue running through it. With notes of dark chocolate & charred oak on the nose, all lifted by aromas of cherries & plums. Velvety soft tannins allows the red fruit flavour to shine through.
