Region Eden Valley

The Eden Valley is a cool and elevated sub-region of the Barossa situated in the Barossa Range to the east, overlooking the Barossa Valley. Low water availabilty, high altitude and strong winds make site selection in the region very important . The vineyeard soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock and are comprised mostly of red clay and sandy, silty loams interspersed with schistic gravels. The Eden Valley is renowned for its floral talc scented Rieslings and vibrant fruit pure Shiraz. Cool climate Chardonnay also performs well as does Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

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.
