Peter Lehmann, with 33 vintages already under his belt, started his own winery in 1979, partly as a means of helping with the glut of grapes then afflicting the Barossa. "I'll take your grapes and turn them into wine," he told the desperate growers, many of them conservative farmers of Silesian descent who regarded their old vines as part of their patrimony. "But I'll only be able to pay you when I sell the wine." They gratefully accepted. Without this deal, it is widely thought that the Barossa would have lost a huge chunk of its old vines. The 'Masters' wines are made from the parcels regarded by the winemakers as the best SémillonRieslingCabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz of the vintage.

Vineyards
Peter Lehmann works with over 140 growers across the length and breadth of the Barossa Valley region, with access to over 750 individual vineyard sites. The fruit for this wine was sourced exclusively from the Estate Sémillon vineyard on the banks of the Para River.

Vinification
The grapes were crushed and left on skins overnight before being pressed the next day. The juice was then clarified and cold fermented in stainless steel tanks, prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes
A beautiful golden colour that will intensify with bottle age. The bouquet is chock full of honey and lime marmalade. Deliciously luscious and counterbalanced by natural acidity, this is a dessert wine with the highest of pedigree.
