The colour is deep red-black leading to a bouquet showing hints of chocolate and dark plums. These flavours extend to the palate which is richly structured with a fine, persistent finish - a wine of great style and power.

The 2006 vintage is highly rated by the winemakers and has produced wines of great depth, flavour and richness.

Extremely low yielding mature vineyards in the Barossa Valley districts of Kabiningie, Dorrien, Freeling and Greenock.

Fermented & macerated on skins for up to 2 weeks with some partial barrel fermentation. After pressing & clarification, matured in 90% French and 10% American oak hogsheads for approx 18 months.

Savour with rich game dishes, roast beef, and hard cheese such as Parmigiano Reggiano, aged cheddar or Grana Padana.

Stonewell Shiraz is Peter Lehmann Wines best wine of each vintage and one of the world's great Shiraz. It is the most powerful expression of Shiraz we make from our growers' vineyards. The pedigree of these vineyards and the knowledge that has been passed from each winemaking generation at Peter Lehmann Wines to the next, assures us these will be wines of great longevity.

The story of Stonewell Shiraz began in 1987 when Peter Lehmann decided to make a special Shiraz - a wine of immense intensity and muscularity that would demand time in the barrel and bottle before release. The wine was named 'Stonewell' after the district that he believed best showed the characters admired most in Barossa Shiraz.

This tradition has continued and each vintage the best Shiraz from our legacy of growers' Barossa vineyards is chosen to create Stonewell. Usually no more than a dozen small, old vineyards are selected each year, the oldest planted in 1885. Located in the harder country, these are some of our lowest yielding vineyards. The berries are small and sparse with crops typically less than 2 tonnes per acre.
