Meandering about my local wine shop, my eye was drawn to the fun bottle shape and lush, saturated colours on the label of Peter Lehmann Barossa Shiraz 2008. Famous for its Shiraz, the Barossa Valley luckily escaped the Phylloxera epidemic which resulted in many of the vineyards having roots that are the direct descendents of the original cuttings brought to Australia in the early 1800’s from the Rhone Valley. A 5thgeneration Barossan, Peter Lehmann began producing wine in 1947; the Queen of Clubs on the label symbolizes “the gamble” he took when he built his winery in 1979. Today his son Doug heads the company which comprises over 150 different Barossa growers throughout the valley, and has an international reputation for producing some of “the very best Shiraz in Australia”.
