Peter Lehmann Shiraz Barossa Valley Black Queen 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Sparkling Shiraz is a unique Australian wine style, first developed in South Australia in the late 1800’s. In the 1930’s, 40’s & 50’s, the Seppelt winery at Great Western in Victoria became the home of great Australian sparkling Shiraz, or sparkling Burgundy as it was commonly known at the time. Chief winemaker Andrew Wigan grew up in a town close to that winery and those sparkling Shiraz held a strong attraction for a young winemaker. Ever since he came to the Barossa in the mid 1970’s to work with Peter Lehmann, he wanted to make a great sparkling wine from Barossa Shiraz. The colour of this unusual wine is dark cherry red. The nose has lashings of beautiful soft chocolate and dark plums. Having spent 6 years on yeast lees, it has a persistent fine bead, and is superbly developed, showing richness, softness and a delicious yeast complexity. The perfect celebration wine. A great party starter and wonderful for a lazy Sunday brunch. Try with egg and bacon pie! Delicious with roast turkey, baked honey-glazed ham.

A wonderful red. Smooth, soft, delicious fruit tastes, without being sweet. Just a delight with pasta w/ a sweet red sauce.

    Delicious notes of chocolate and dark cherries leading to an explosion of dark, exotic fruits on the palate. Peter Lehmann Wines have had a lot of reasons to celebrate over the years as they have won many awards for their wines. Of course to celebrate you have to have bubbles, so it only made sense that they would make a range of Sparkling wines. Grapes : 100% Shiraz Region : Australia / Barossa / Eden Valley Maker : Andrew Wigan Notes : Beautifully deep in colour with a persistent fine bead. The bouquet shows hints of chocolate and dark cherry leading to an explosion of dark, exotic fruits on the palate - a very special sparkling red for special celebrations. Serve : Ideal partner for celebrations, fruit desserts or enjoying on its own as a refreshing wine ABV : 14.00%

    Wine Tasting NotesDark center with a deep red rim. On the nose it shows dark plum, black forest fruits and chocolate. A robust and full-bodied wine, showing delicious velvet fruit on the palate, reflecting the quality of the excellent vintage.

    Tiefes Schwarz-Rot. In der Nase opulent; nach reifen Pflaumen sowie Anklänge an Mokka- Schokolade. Im Gaumen gut strukturiert, ausgewogen, mit Aromen dunkler Früchte; gut integrierte, dezente Tanninen mit einem langen, festen Nachhall.

    Intensives Purpurrot. Grosse Aromafächer mit Noten von Zartbitterschokolade, Lakritze und Beeren. Im Gaumen herrliche, konzentrierte Shirazsüsse kombiniert mit feiner Barriquearomatik, gestützt von einem soliden Säure-Tanningerüst.

    Tiefrote Farbe; in der Nase weich, mit einer schönen Balance zwischen Pflaumen-, Frucht- und Eichenholzaromen, mit Nuancen von Muskatnuss und Vanille; im Gaumen ein klassischer Barossa Shiraz: mit samtigen Fruchtnoten, weichen Tanninen und einem langen Abgang. Der Ausbau dieses Shiraz erfolgte während 18 Monaten in französischen und amerikanischen Eichenholzfässern

    Tiefrote Farbe, in der Nase sehr fruchtig, nach Lakritze mit würzigen Komponenten und ein wenig dunkler Schokolade. Im Gaumen ausgewogene Harmonie zwischen Frucht und Würze, mit langem Nachhall.

    <p>Peter Lehmann believes that the Barossa region of Australia is the ideal place to grow Shiraz. This one has a bouquet of plums and black fruit. It pairs well with steak.</p>
