Description

This is a dense and dark red wine that has flavours of red cherry, plum, dark chocolate and oak, that are delivered on a smooth, soft palate with velvety tannins. A real treat.

Released with bottle age and ready to go, this is part of the Masters' Series of wines that Lehmann produce to honour impactful and meaningful events in Peter Lehmann's life. This, brilliantly, is a homage to Peter Maxwell Davies' Eight Songs for a Mad King, which indeed is impactful and meaningful, as well as utterly excellent.

Lehmann's wines and their legacy are considerable. The story of the winery has reminiscences of the Vincent Lingiarri struggle, as grape growers in the Barossa were being deprived of their living by companies refusing to pay and honour contracts. Lehmann essentially saved the region by taking out a loan and building a winery to vinify the excessive amount of grapes harvested in the region. The first wine was The Futures Shiraz, named as a commitment that Lehmann was giving to the growers' own future, as well as his own. Working this closely and successfully with vineyards in the region has given him unparalleled privilege in being able to source the best quality fruit available, and it's obvious that it isn't just saved for the best wine either: grape for grape, these are some of the best value wines from Barossa, year after year after year.
