With his word as his bond, many growers in the Barossa sold fruit to Peter Lehmann on a handshake agreement; many of which are still honoured today. These longstanding relationships give us unrivalled access to some of the finest
quality grapes across the length and breadth of the region to craft our wines. Following a period of uncertainty, Peter Lehmann Wines was born to preserve a winemaking community, and save it from detriment during the great fruit surplus of the late 1970s. The Bond is created to honour Peter and his promise.

The Bond has been crafted to honour Peter and his word, and as a testament to the relationships we continue to nurture to this day.
Winemaker Notes
A deep purple core with a bright crimson edge. Lifted red berries, plum and dark chocolate aromas. A full-bodied palate with velvety tannins. Dark chocolate continues through to the palate which shows ripe plums, spice and a lingering, softly structured finish. Ready to enjoy fresh, or can be cellared until 2029.
Production
With winter of 2018 seeing only 77% of the long term average rainfall it was expected that 2019 vintage would see lower yields. However, significant frost events soon after budburst in late September and early November caused widespread damage across the region, with many losing more than 50% of their potential crop. The growing season remained extremely dry with a late November hailstorm adding to the list of challenges. After a very warm January, February and March settled towards average temperatures and remained dry. The small crops were nearly all harvested by the end of March, one of the earliest vintages on record. Whilst yields were very low, the quality of 2019 reds is exceptional with intense colour and flavour being characteristic of the vintage.
