Winemaker's Notes

Winemaker's Notes: ‘Eight Songs for A Mad King’ was one of Peter Lehmann’s favourite vocal ensemble musical works, loved for its soft harmonies. This is sourced from some of the oldest, low-yielding vineyards in Barossa. It was first made in 1996 from three 100-plus year-old vineyards with the aim of producing a decisively soft style unlike any other Peter Lehmann Shiraz before it. Maturation in 100% new French oak hogsheads integrates the rich fruit and velvety tannins to enhance dark chocolate and soft red fruit characters.

Winemaking: Fermented and macerated on skins for up to 2 weeks with some partial barrel fermentation. Following pressing and clarification, the wine was matured in French oak hogsheads for approximately 15 months.

Appearance: Deep in colour with a bright red hue.

On the nose: The nose displays notes of dark chocolate and charry oak combined with lifted red cherry and plum aromas.

On the palate: Soft velvety tannins and soft red fruits on the palate.

Bottle Size: 750ml

Closure: Screw Cap
