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.
Crafted by the next generation of Peter Lehmann winemakers, ‘The Barossan’ range highlights the outstanding fruit sourced from the many fabled sub-regions across the Barossa Valley.
