Peter Lehmann 8 Songs Shiraz 2010
In every business, there are people and events that leave a lasting and treasured legacy. The Masters wines from Peter Lehmann represent the finest ultra premium parcels that are blended from many of the best vineyards the Barossa can offer. It seems only fair then that the wines be named in tribute to the characters and events that made the winery what it is today. Eight Songs Shiraz was born out of love of art and music and inspired by an operatic work, ‘Eight Songs for Mad King’, first performed in the Barossa in 1993. The heart of Eight Songs lies in the old Shiraz vineyards spread across the landscape of the Barossa. Eight Songs is an elegant and distinctly softer side to Barossa Shiraz. Fermented and matured in 100% new French oak hogsheads the palate shows dark plums, chocolate and mocha notes with hints of vanilla undertones. The seamless integration of opulent fruit and velvety tannins creates an elegant expression of Barossa Shiraz at its sensuous best.
