Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Crafted by the next generation of Peter Lehmann winemakers, the Barossan showcases the superb fruit sourced from the many fabled sub-regions across the Barossa Valley.
A selection of the Barossa’s key growers, renowned for their quality and skill, have shared their passion and pristine fruit to create this quintessential Barossa Shiraz. Each parcel speaks to its vineyard origins, sharing a special and unique aspect of the sub-region.
Deep red colour with a deep black centre. Lifted aromas of fresh red berries complemented by charred spice notes and elements of dark chocolate and aniseed. A full-bodied Barossa Shiraz with a palate rich in juicy red fruits and persistent chocolate characters that carry through to the palate to finish on a silky soft finish. Enjoy now or can be cellared until 2028."

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2017 Vintage)
"This immensely appealing shiraz shows blackberry, Black Doris plum, cocoa, cedar and cake spice aromas on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that is wonderfully flavoursome and persistent. It is mouthfilling and velvety, making it irresistibly delicious. At its best: now to 2027."
4 ½ Stars & Best Buy, Cuisine Australian Shiraz Tasting, June 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"A classic style with notes of violet, eucalyptus and sweet vanilla oak. The fresh palate is expertly balanced with flavours of ripe raspberries, dark blue fruits and blackcurrants. Very affordable and very drinkable."
4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"Fleshy and smooth, this instantly appealing red is boldly coloured, fragrant and robust (14.5% alc/vol), with deep, plummy, spicy flavours, hints of liquorice and mint chocolate and a well-rounded finish."
Yvonne Lorkin, May 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Glossy and inky in the glass, this shiraz delivers a sweet, plummy, roundhouse kick to your cakehole. Hints of toasted coconut merge with a smorgasbord of spices, buckets of berries and luxurious layers of cocoa-dusted character on the finish."
90/100 Cameron Douglas MS, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Ripe, oaky, fruity and spicy with black pepper, black currant, blueberry and plum aromas. Dry yet fruity with blue and black berry flavours, fleshy plum and chocolate, clove toasty oak flavours. Moderate tannins with medium+ (ish) acidity. Persistent flavours, fruity, toasty, ripe , balanced and lengthy finish. Well made – as always. Drink from 2019 through 2026."
