Winery & Vintage Info

Known as the man who saved the Barossa Valley, Peter Lehmann’s reputation is legendary throughout the region and Australian winemaking history. Today, Peter Lehmann Wines is one of the most established family owned wineries in the region.

Often referred to as the ‘Jewel in our Crown’, the Peter Lehmann Black Queen Sparkling Shiraz 2016 is a unique and indulgent wine crafted from premium vineyards in South Australia’s Barossa region. This regal sparkling wine boasts bold flavours and a fine, persistent and elegant bead. Sparkling Shiraz is a unique Australian wine style, first developed in South Australia in the late 1800s. Former Peter Lehmann Chief Winemaker, Andrew Wigan, was attracted to the style as a young winemaker. He aspired to make a great sparkling wine from Barossa Shiraz and he began working with Peter Lehmann in the 1970s.

Sourced from three premium vineyards in the Nurioopta, Light Pass and Ebenezer districts it was fermented on skins for 7-10 days, pressed, clarified and then matured for 12 months in older French oak hogsheads. The base wine was then bottle-fermented and aged on its yeast lees for five years. After disgorgement, a small amount of The King Vintage Port was added to build complexity.

Bright and deep red, the aroma is abundant in savoury plum, fennel seed and dark chocolate aromas.

The cool, slow ripening vintage of 2017 has melded the quality of Black Queen in to a age-worthy classic. Naturally low in tannins, the wine is soft and abundant in rich dark fruits with a lovely Christmas cake-like finish. The sweetness is apparent, but balanced by the complexity of fruit-weight and time spent on tirage before disgorgement.
