Established just eleven years after the founding of South Australia, the ancient vines in the Hundred Of Moorooroo were planted circa 1836 by the Jacob brothers, after accompanying Colonel William Light on the Seven Special Surveys expedition to populate Adelaide's north. Moorooroo endures as the nation's cardinal parcel of vine, the mother rootstock for many of the Barossa's most distinguished sites. For over a century, these sacred vines contributed fruit to the Orlando company, where they formed the backbone of countless spectacular historical vintages. Decimated by the government sponsored vine pull schemes of the 1980s, only four rows of these priceless.. The fruit of vines established 1836»
Old Richmond Gaol was one of Diemen Land's first prisons, built by the convicts themselves, of good old fashioned granite blocks, laboriously hauled in wooden hand carts and quarried from the ominously monikered Butchers Hill. Today, Butchers Hill is the site of the steepest sloping vineyard in Coal River Valley, invigorated by afternoon sea breezes and prevailing winds from the roaring forties, its highly auspicious, self mulching black Vertosols, yield extraordinary wines. Established by founding members of the Hobart Beefsteak & Burgundy Club, Butchers Hill represents three generations of passion amongst the nether vineyards of the Apple Isle. Not just a..

Just outside the Gippsland town of Leongatha, a few minutes down the road from the hallowed grounds at Bass Phillip estate, ten precious acres of exceptional terroir were planted in 1990, to artisanal clones of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. The propitious easterly aspects make the most of morning sun, an auspicious bequeath of fertile Ferrosols oblige the rootstock and infuse the fruit, while reducing the vigor and rationing the harvest. Lucinda Estate was never established as a producer of scale, its scant yields were always destined to be in pursuit of stunning Syrah and the perfect Pinot. Victoria's Gippsland is a place of paradise for vintages in the.. A glimpse of the gippsland grail»

Peter Lehmann The King Vintage Port CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Touriga Barossa South Australia
Every now and then, Peter Lehmann releases a rare jewel from deep within the cellar. The King is a superb fortified wine of great distinction which has laid undisturbed in the bottle for many years under the Peter Lehmann Tanunda Cellars. Twelve years old upon release, The King is showing the benefits of extended bottle age. A rich and mature cepage of Shiraz with Touriga Nacional, grown to good Barossa vineyards, the King must be decanted carefully, as a vintage Port of this distinction will show some sediment and crust. A treasure of a wine.

Peter Lehmann maintains the tradition of reserving a few barrels of fortified from each vintage and cellaring the bottled contents to mature. A beautifully made wine which has developed a deep velvet appearance and luscious characters with a lift of spirit on the nose. Shiraz and Touriga Nacional are vinified on skins for three to four days, a neutral brandy spirit is then added to arrest fermentations. Following a further ten days maceration on skins, batches are pressed, clarified and aged twelve months in a selection of older oak barrels. Components are racked and assembled, bottled and held under the Peter Lehmann Tanunda cellars for maturation until ready to release. The King is a vegan friendly wine. Alcohol 19.0%
Deep mahogany colour, brick robes. Deeply complex bouquet showing hints of liquorice and black cherries, almond and festive cake. The palate shows wonderful richness, full of nutty complexity and fine fruited, without being cloyingly sweet. Whilst richly mouthfilling, The King shows a taut structure and finishes remarkably velvety, spicy and dry, as do all the great Ports of the world, an intensely regal wine.
