Peter Lehmann The Antiquus Shiraz 2017
Lavish, profound and complex – simply magnificent Barossa Shiraz!
“It’s not often a person becomes a legend in their own lifetime” says James Halliday of the man called the ‘Baron of Barossa’. His story and the acclaim his renowned estate commands
are remarkable. Peter, who has sadly passed away,
was born in 1930, the fifth generation of Barossa
pioneers. He made his first wine aged 17, and earned
a big name at some of Barossa’s finest estates. To safeguard the livelihood of growers, he opened
his own cellar in the 1970s. A huge gamble that
paid off big time. Halliday gives the estate his highest
rating, 5 Red Stars, and on top of multiple Trophies
and Golds, his credentials are really astonishing.
