Description

"This is sweetly fruited and immediately appealing on the nose showing raspberry, dark cherry, violet, vanilla and mixed spice aromas, followed by a juicy palate that is plump and supple. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and varietal flavours, making it a wonderful anytime red" Wine Orbit

With purple hues and a bright crimson edge, this wine is extremely fragrant, revealing aromas of fresh raspberries, maraschino cherries and peppery spices. This is a medium-bodied wine with flavours of juicy berries and soft tannins, with exotic subtleties of pomegranate and rose.

Sourced from premium Grenache vineyards on the Barossa Valley floor.

The 2017 vintage began after a long wet Winter. This resulted in wet soils and a cooler than average Spring, leading to the vines growing slowly but healthily. March saw the beginning of an Indian Summer, which was perfect for consistent ripening, colour development and good natural acidity.

The wine was fermented on skins for ten days, utilising a small percentage of whole bunch fermentation in open fermenters, and then aged in older French oak for 15 months prior to bottling, with a combination of 300L oak hogsheads and 500L puncheons.

Crafted by the next generation of Peter Lehmann winemakers, THE Barossan showcases the superb grapes 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 the ultimate expression of a great Barossa Grenache. Each parcel of grapes speaks to its vineyard origins, sharing a special and unique aspect of the sub-region.

Food Pairing: Matches perfectly well with slow cooked casseroles, stews and tomato-based dishes like Spaghetti Bolognese.
