Winemaker Notes

Layers is a unique blend that delivers a highly enjoyable journey of discovery for the senses in each and every glass. Shiraz delivers fruit depth and structure, combining beautifully with the aromatics and spiciness of Grenache, Mourvedre adds wild earthy notes to the blend and melds together with the firm, savory character of Tempranillo, to surround and soften the palate of this multi-dimensional wine.

This wine perfectly complements a wide variety of game, Mediterranean influenced dishes and spicy Indian curries.

Critical Acclaim

WS 89
Wine Spectator
Fresh and open-textured, offering a medium-weight mix of orange peel—accented red berry and exotic spice flavors, persisting against polished tannins with a sense of refinement. Shiraz, Tempranillo, Mourvèdre and Grenache. Drink now through 2018.

Peter Lehmann, Barossa, Australia

The history of Peter Lehmann Wines is intrinsically linked to the events that made the Barossa famous. Formed in 1979 by Peter Lehmann to assist the grape growers of the region who at the time were facing financial ruin, they now enjoy the rewards of longstanding friendships and loyalty. Each vintage, over 160 grape growers supply Peter Lehmann with the best fruit from over 900 of the best vineyards located throughout the Barossa. These amazing resources enable them to craft wines for every occasion, including their flagship, Stonewall. Peter Lehmann Wines has developed a reputation as one of Australia's most respected, energetic and innovative premium wine producers and today, the team continues to create wines that delight wine lovers around the globe.

The Barossa Zone encompasses the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. Some of the oldest vines in Australia can be found here.

Barossa Valley of course is the most important and famous wine growing region in all of Australia where 140+ year-old, dry-farmed Shiraz vines still produce inky, purple and dense juice for some of Australia's best wines.

In the cooler, wetter Eden Valley sub-region, the Hill of Grace vineyard is home to famous Shiraz vines from the 1800s but the region produces also some of Australia’s very best and age-worthy Rieslings.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
