This is a little piece of Australian wine history. Legendary winemaker, Peter Lehmann made this vintage port in 1979. '79 was his last year at Saltram before venturing out on his own to create the empire that was to become Peter Lehmann wines, arguably one of the Barossa's most important wine institutions. He took a little Shiraz from the Barossa and a little Cabernet from Langhorne Creek and fortified it with Brandy spirit. The wine has remained in the Lehmann family cellar for almost four decades until his heir, Dave Lehmann decided to release a small amount as a tribute to his father. It's a wine that transports you back to a different time. A time when fortified wines were abundant in Australia. This is an incredibly rare opportunity to take a step back in time with one of the country's true wine legends.

What it Tastes Like

Unbelievably fresh for its age. Golden toffee and treacle over salted licorice and plum jam. The spirit has kept it so alive, an aging warhorse still with a twinkle in its eye. Finish is long and dignified. Fantastic drinking experience. Such a pleasure.
