External Reviews for Peter Lehmann Shiraz Weighbridge
A beautifully soft, fruit driven wine showing typical shiraz richness reined in by the soft tannin finish. As a 5th generation Barossan, Peter Lehmann was the son of a Pastor and was born in Angaston in 1930. He started wine-making in 1947 under the mentorship of the great Rudi Kronberger, moving on after thirteen years to become manager and wine producer at Saltram Wines. His own estate was founded in 1979, to support the Barossa growers facing financial ruin due to overproduction, and he soon became acknowledged as a producer of premium quality wines gaining an international reputation and following. James Halliday, the eminent wine writer said "It's not often a person becomes a legend in their own lifetime" Grapes : 100% Shiraz Region : Australia / Barossa Maker : Andrew Wigan Notes : Beautiful dark cherry in colour, giving a mixed spice and dark plum nose with a typical Shiraz touch of pepper. Great depth on the palate, reflecting the excellent quality of the Lehmann estates. A fantastic, youthful wine giving immense enjoyment. Serve : This fresh full-fruited wine is a delicious partner for pasta and cheese dishes and perfect with chicken and light meat. ABV : 14.00%
