Peter Lehmann The Barossan Shiraz – a story about a man who some say helped save the Barossa. A bank loan, a handshake and working together during the tough times.

Lehmann left school early in 1947 to start an apprenticeship as a winemaker and by the late 50s he was winemaker at the iconic winery Saltrams. In 1978 a fruit surplus spelt disaster for the region with companies refusing to buy grapes and leaving the livelihoods of over 140 local growers in the shtuck!

Peter put his balls on the line, took out a loan, assembled the equipment needed and built a small winery (called Masterton of the Barossa) to process their grapes. The first vintage was produced in 1980 and was named “The Futures” after the agreement (by handshake, in true old school fashion) that Peter would pay the growers first once the wine sold. His word was his bond. By 1982 (after much convincing needed) he put the Peter Lehmann name on the wines – the rest is history!

Using fruit from across the Barossa region from some of the same family growers that came together during those tough times. Aged 15 months in oak this is the quintessential Barossa Shiraz style the region has become world famous for. It’s big, bold, full bodied and full of rich, juicy dark berry and chocolatey flavours with a silky finish.

A bigger style red like this needs a bigger style feed to go with it like chargrilled steaks, roast beef and game meats. Drink now to 2028.
