Vale Peter Lehmann, a member of the Order of Australia, the original Baron of the Barossa, and a legend of Australian wine, helped shape the wine industry over seven decades. Peter Lehmann established the Tanunda-based winery that bears his name in 1979, creating a wine brand that today signifies quality Barossa winemaking. Each vintage, over 140 grape growers supply Peter Lehmann Wines with quality fruit from over 700 hand-tended vineyards located throughout the Barossa.
In the beginning we made just one Shiraz, the grape variety that has defined the Barossa as one of the world's great wine regions. But we knew Shiraz that came from some vineyards was better than others - smaller, deeper in colour and more intensely flavoured - 'Little Black Jewels' we called them. For over 20 years, Stonewell has been lauded as one of Australia's greatest wines and one of the world's greatest Shiraz." - Andrew Wigan
Deep purple-crimson; imposes itself from the first whiff of the expressive bouquet, the first sip of the palate, yet does so with style (and guile); the aromas and flavours are complex, yet seamlessly moulded in a supple display of black and red fruits, the tannins equally supple, the French oak totally integrated and balanced.
