Sparkling Shiraz is a unique Australian wine style, first developed in South Australia in the late 1800's. From the 1930's through to the 50's, the Seppelt winery at Great Western in Victoria became the home of great Australian Sparkling Shiraz, or Sparkling Burgundy as it was commonly known at the time.

Chief Winemaker Andrew Wigan grew up in a town close to that winery and those Sparkling Shiraz held a strong attraction for a young winemaker. Ever since he came to the Barossa in the mid 1970's to work with Peter Lehmann, he wanted to make a great sparkling wine from Barossa Shiraz. We started making a few cases each year in the 1980's and didn't get really serious about it until the first wine was released in 1999 from the 1994 vintage after 5 years cellaring in the bottle on tirage. Made in traditional Methode Champenoise.

We named it The Black Queen in honour of the most hauntingly famous Black Queen of all, The Queen of Sheba, who describes herself in the book of Solomon I am black, (and) comely. There can be no better description of this wine. A truely indulgent pleasure The 2008 Mentor is a classic example of great Barossa Cabernet showing deep colour, intense dark forest fruits and a firmly structured finish.

Beautifully deep in colour with a persistent fine bead. The bouquet shows hints of chocolate and dark cherry leading to an explosion of dark, exotic fruits on the palate-a very special sparkling red for special celebrations.

The perfect celebration wine: a great party starter and wonderful for a lazy Sunday Brunch. Delicious with roast turkey, quail and glazed ham, or chocolate cake!

Producer Information

Peter Lehmann's personal bravery, loyalty and commitment to the Barossa forged the foundations of the winery that bears his name, built in 1979 to protect the livelihood of his mates, the independent Barossa grape growers, and their treasured vineyards. His passion for, and commitment to, the Barossa is infectious and continues with everyone today that is associated with Peter Lehmann Wines, now under the guidance of son Doug Lehmann.
A conviction that the Barossa is the best place in Australia to make wine, and having enough self belief to constantly explore and push the boundaries of wine excellence has yielded some impressive results over the years, perhaps none more spectacularly than in both 2003 and 2006 when they accepted the awards for Best Australian Producer and International Winemaker of the Year at the International Wine and Spirit Competition in London.
Their commitment to the Barossa and the growers has been rewarded and the winemakers enjoy access to a legacy of over 900 vineyards that has no peer in the Barossa winemaking community. The growers, their vineyards and a commitment to excellence in Barossa winemaking have been the backbone of Peter Lehmann Wines since 1979.
The Peter Lehmann Barossa Art Series Collection is testament to the Barossa's viticultural heritage, its ability to excel across a variety of wines and the quality and diversity of the growers' vineyards. Their love of wine and art and the diverse character of these wines have inspired Peter Lehmann Wines to distinguish each label with one of the many faces of the Queen of Clubs who is symbolic of the brave gamble Peter Lehmann took to build his winery in 1979.
