The Peter Lehmann Wines Story
In 1979 Peter Lehmann parted ways with Saltram to start Masterson Wines, the company which has since evolved into Peter Lehmann Wines, in a move solely designed to help the growers he had built relationships with over the years. Peter took the surplus grapes and doing business on a handshake sold wine on a “pay now and we’ll deliver in two years” arrangement called ‘The Futures’. This raised enough money to buy the growers’ fruit and process it into what became the first ever vintage of Peter Lehmann wine in 1980. Today the winemaking team at Peter Lehmann have a collective winemaking mentality defined by former chief winemaker and mentor, Andrew Wigan. Over the years there has been a natural evolution within the team but the approach has remained the same; consistency and a continuous strive for perfection. "We are always looking for ways to make better wine. To never rest on our laurels. There is a strong sense of pride and tradition that surround our wines.” Tim Dolan, Senior Winemaker
Why's this wine for you?

Want to taste the Barossa Grenache recently championed the finest in the region? Then look no further than the untold bargain that is Peter Lehmann The Bond.

Not only did it notch up 97pts at the Barossa Valley Wine Show, where it took out the gong for best Grenache, but it also had the critics singing its praises too.

2018 is a classic Grenache year, and this wine has the recipe nailed. Blueberries, nutmeg and spice, its all there. The wine feels so balanced and effortless, with just a whisk of oak and bright, vibrant acidity to keep it fresh. Just look at those reviews (and not just the points)! Tyson Stelzer, Hallidays right-hand man calls the first ever vintage of Peter Lehmann's The Bond Grenache 'The definition of Barossa grenache.' While Huon Hooke calls it 'a serious Grenache and amazing value'. At this price, under $20 a bottle, you cannot get a better wine.

How's it taste?
With purple hues and a bright crimson edge, this wine is extremely fragrant, revealing aromas of fresh raspberries, maraschino cherries and peppery spices. This is a medium-bodied wine with flavours of juicy berries and soft tannins, with exotic subtleties of pomegranate and rose.
How was it made?
The wine was fermented on skins for ten days, utilising a small percentage of whole bunch fermentation in open fermenters, and then aged in older French
oak puncheons and hogheads for 15 months prior to bottling.

Tyson Stelzer - Halliday's Wine Companion
Matured 15 months in seasoned French oak puncheons and hogsheads. Graceful and accurate Barossa grenache in an enticingly medium-bodied guise. Alluring signature raspberry, poached strawberry and rhubarb fruit is the focus, sensitively and subtly supported by seasoned French oak, building more in texture than flavour. Finely crafted tannins carry a long finish. The definition of Barossa grenache.

Huon Hooke - The Real Review
Deep red/purple, excellent colour. The bouquet is lifted and sweetly fragrant, raspberry fruit with oak-char supporting: spicy, savoury and full of interest, with a good backbone of firm tannins in harmony with the whole. Rich, medium to full-bodied and satisfying. Long carry. A serious grenache, and amazing value.

Huon Hooke - The Real Review
Deep, dark red colour with a tint of purple and in appearance more like a GSM than a pure grenache. Black fruit aromas. The wine is full-bodied and dense, concentrated, chunky and bold. Traces of dried herbs and brown spices. The tannins are quite powerful, extending the finish and adding some (acceptable) astringency. Good now, with food, and better if given a little more time. Impressive stuff; very good value.

The first release under this label, this has a fresh, poached-raspberry nose with very bright, lively fruit appeal. The palate has such intense, essence-like raspberries and some berry pastry to close. Supple texture. Drink now. Screw cap.
