Peter Lehmann Portrait Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml)
If you were to paint a portrait of Peter Lehmann it would have real depth and character, just like the man himself! When pressured by his bosses in the 1970’s to renege on a hand-shake deal he’d struck with the growers, Peter Lehmann said ‘to hell with them’ and – with the help of the local community – bought all the grapes himself. Peter Lehmann’s winery was created in 1979. For his style and skill as a winemaker, and for his backing of the Barossa and its growers, Peter Lehmann has become a living legend in the Barossa.
There are currently over 140 grape growers throughout the region that supply the company with quality fruit for the company’s extensive range of wines. The Peter Lehmann brand is synonymous with the quality and consistency that one has come to expect from Australian wines.
The colour is deep red with a dense black centre, and the nose gives tantalising aromas of chocolate, blackcurrants, with hints of nutmeg, cloves and star anise. It is a beautifully rich Cabernet with superb depth of seamless fruit. A supple wine, it is lively and inviting and finishes satisfyingly firm.
Fermented on skins for a period of seven-to -ten days before maturation in 15% new and older French and American oak hogsheads for 14 months prior to bottling.
