Founded in 1979, Peter Lehmann Wines brings unmatched diversity, uniqueness and quality from more than 800 hand-tended vineyards across the length and breadth of all 14 Barossa sub-regions. The quality of Peter Lehmann Wines are a testament to our relationships, allowing us access to the region’s finest grapes.

Collectively, these wines present a portrait of the region through a selection of the traditional varietals that made it famous.

REGION Barossa Valley.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS The Spring of 2016 supplied bountiful rain and overflowing rivers across the Barossa and Eden Valley. This set up the vineyards perfectly for the growing season, where above average crops and healthy canopies allowed the fruit to hang on the vine for longer - resulting in an elegant, full bodied and balanced style of Portrait Shiraz.

WINEMAKING & MATURATION Fruit was fermented on skins for seven to ten days. Following pressing, clarification and blending, the wine was matured in 10% new French and American oak 300L hogsheads for 12 months prior to bottling.

COLOUR Deep red with a black centre.

NOSE/ AROMA Red berries, charry spice with chocolate and liquorice notes. PALATE Chocolate carries through to the palate, which is abundant with rich red fruits and a soft finish.

ANALYSIS Alc/Vol 14.5% T.A 6.21g/L pH 3.62 RS (Glucose & Fructose) 0.55g/L
