Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Futures wines are a tribute to our past and a celebration of our future. Recalling our Barossa story, ‘Futures’ was the wine that secured the livelihoods of the growers who were integral to establishing the Barossa region. Today these wines are made in recognition of the long-standing friendships and partnerships that will continue to prosper long into the future. Futures wines are testament to generations of Peter Lehmann winemakers working alongside renowned Barossa grape-growers, allowing us to source exceptional parcels of fruit from select low-yielding vineyards across the region.
Vineyard Notes
Fruit was sourced from low yielding, high quality Barossa vineyards in the premium Western and Northern sub-regions of Barossa Valley.
Winemaker Notes
This Shiraz is a deep red colour displaying a bright edge, with notes of dark fruits, chocolate and liquorice combined with a charry oak undertone and long, firm finish. The intense muscular fruit flavours are integrated perfectly, creating an approachable and supple wine that will benefit from cellaring if desired.
Food Pairing Notes
Ideal with rich game dishes, roast beef or a good quality aged cheddar cheese.
Production
Fermented on skins for 7 – 10 days. Following pressing and clarification, the was wine matured in a mixture of new and older French oak hogsheads for 15 months prior to bottling.
