PETER LEHMANN Stonewell 2012

Peter Lehmann Stonewell Shiraz represents the essence of the Barossa’s generous character. Immensely concentrated, low-yield fruit, combined with skilled winemaking, is the basis of this great Australian Shiraz. Stonewell, first vintaged in 1987, is sourced from the 'best of the best' Shiraz vineyards of the Barossa, including Stonewell (hence the name), Marananga, Greenock, Kalimna, Ebenezer and the dry western district of Rosedale. Eden Valley material can also be included in certain years. A classical yet modern style, nowadays the wine is barrel fermented and matured in new and “second-fill” French oak. Stonewell Shiraz shows plenty of paneforte, plum, chocolate aromas, voluminous sweet fruit, structured tannins, well-seasoned oak flavours and tremendous length.

Region Barossa

Barossa Valley Colonel William Light, the South Australian colony’s Surveyor-General, named the Barossa in 1837 after the site of an English victory over the French in the Spanish Peninsular War. In the mid-1800’s Silesian and English immigrants settled in the area. The Barossa itself comprises two distinct sub-regions: Eden Valley and the warmer Barossa Valley floor at 270m.The Barossa Valley enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate characterised by hot dry summers and relatively low rainfall. Cool sea breezes from the Gulf of St Vincent modify the temperature, however hot northerly winds can occasionally dominate creating considerable vine stress. Many older established vineyards are dry-grown, but supplementary irrigation is also extensively used. The valley is comprised of rich brown soils and alluvial sands. A long history of uninterrupted viticulture in the area means the Barossa valley is home to Australia’s largest concentration of old-vine Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre with many

A long history of uninterrupted viticulture in the area means the Barossa valley is home to Australia’s largest concentration of old-vine Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre with many over 100 years old. Although most famous for Shiraz, the Barossa can also produce fragrant and deliciously fruity Grenache blends and beautifully rich, chocolatey Cabernet Sauvignons.

Winery PETER LEHMANN

The late Peter Lehmann (1930-2013) was one of the most important characters in the Barossa. The son of a Lutheran pastor, Lehmann kept the spirit alive during periods of severe economic downturn. His reward was access to some of the very best fruit in the Barossa Valley. Today the winery owns some of the best vineyard land in the Barossa including the famed Stonewell Vineyard. However this only amounts to a tiny amount of total production. The winery relies hugely on the trust, loyalty and friendships that have been built up with numerous independent growers over many many years. The winemaking team headed up by Andrew Wigan represents a blend of traditional thought and modern practice. Over the years Peter Lehmann has evolved as a significant Barossa wine producer with a multi-layered portfolio of wines, all of which offer superb value. Since 2002 Peter Lehmann Wines has been a member of the Hess Group.
