Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Adelaide Hills South Australia
The Peter Lehmann team treat every wine as a piece of art, composed with the assistance of a palette of fruit from more than 140 growers across the length and breadth of Barossa Valley. Many of the independent growers identify Peter Lehmann as mentor of the Barossa and will submit nothing but their finest fruit. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are synonymous with the great national icon wines of Peter Lehmann, as he has continued to make a distinguished contribution for decades to the evolution of the Barossa Shiraz Cabernet style
The Art & Soul range are fashioned to represent an experience that's far greater than the sum of parts, made to capture true varietal character while offering quality and consistency with every vintage. Shiraz and Cabernet make the enduring Australian claret style. Art Series is crafted from a collation of parcels assembled from established Shiraz and Cabernet vineyards dotted dotted throughout the Barossa. Grapes are crushed and vinified on skins for seven days before pressing off to a mixture of French and American oak hogsheads for a year, where the Shiraz and Cabernet components integrate fully, building complexity, mellowing the tannins and achieving fine structure.
Deep red colour. Bouquet of dark chocolates, cassis and plum, lightly fragrant spice with whiffs of currant. The palate is satisfyingly rich, showing long generous fruit flavours of dary cherry and plum, spiced blueberries and plum over supple sweet tannins and cocoa/ carob oak before a firm, long finish. Enjoy with tomato braised meats, oven baked eggplant and cheese inspired recipes.
