Peter Lehmann - Art Series Shiraz Grenache 2011Barossa Valley
Peter Lehmann has led a colourful life. He created one of Australia's most respected and popular wine brands by defying accepted wisdom, courting near misses and narrow scrapes and never shirking the opportunity to challenge a norm. This range is a reflection of the colour and fun experienced as PL has lived his dream, with all his 'art and soul.
Shiraz and Grenache make perfect wine partners - blended together they each bring varietal qualities which create a deliciously enjoyable wine perfect for drinking when young. The lifted aromatic flavours of Grenache gives the richness of Shiraz a delightful softness and elegance, making it an affable classic Barossa blend.
A deep, vibrant red colour leads to a bouquet of dark red fruits and a touch of background aniseed-this a richly flavoured, fruit driven wine with great aromatics and a beautifully soft finish.
The youthful freshness of this wine makes for perfect lunchtime drinking. Wonderful with Mediterranean style dishes such as pizza, pasta or chicken. Also good with a spicy barbecued sausage in fresh bread.
