"When once asked why the Barossa could make so many different wines, Peter Lehmann replied, 'Because we can!'
– testament to the Barossa’s viticultural heritage, its ability to excel across a variety of wines and its reputation as
Australia’s greatest winemaking region. Our love of wine and art and the diverse character of these wines have inspired
us to distinguish each label with one of the many faces of the Queen of Clubs who is symbolic of the brave gamble Peter
Lehmann took to build his winery in 1979.
Peter Lehmann once said that when God created Shiraz, he did so with the Barossa in mind! Shiraz has had a long and
glorious history in the Barossa where it has flourished uninterrupted since the 1840’s. The Barossa blessedly escaped
the scourge of phylloxera, and consequently many of the vineyards remain planted on their own roots, direct descendants
of cuttings brought to Australia in the early 1800’s from Hermitage in the Rhone Valley. This makes the Barossa
the envy of the wine world.
Our soils and our climate are ideal for producing the full flavoured, rich fruited Shiraz wines of great longevity that have
made them internationally recognised as Australia’s contribution to the great wines of the world."
"Ripe and round, this is generous with its smoky cherry and black currant flavors, persisting against mildly grippy tannins to create a long, layered finish. Best from 2010 through 2016." -Rated 91, Wine Spectator
