Peter Lehmann

Barossa Valley

The shiraz and riesling vintages here (oh, and the semillon) are probably the most consistent, affordable and widely distributed wines in the Barossa. Lehmann himself – a fifth-generation Barossa winemaker and a legend in the wine trade – passed away in 2013 aged 82, causing an outpouring of sadness across the valley.
