About The Wine

This wine began its life back in 1947 as the base of the famous Saltram twany. 

Dave Franz' father, the great Peter Lehmann, added to the stocks during his time at Saltrams and took a large portion with him when he left to start his own winery.

The Old Redemption was Lehmann's own blend. He tucked it away in old barrels in the old dusty sheds of the family winery for decades.

Now, we are lucky enough that he has allowed his son Dave to release it in these tiny batches. 

It's one of the more decadent and impressive tawnys you are likey to find in Australia right now with a history as rich as its flavour.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Initial syrupy silky rich mouth feel is turned into a fiery delight of hot chilli like pepper fire and cleansing spirit. Like an XO cognac the angels dance of pure fire stipples the tongue with heady sweet oak that persists for around the same time that it takes to put the kids through college. The concentrated raisin sweetness fills and caresses the mouth before opening lotus like to layer upon layer of spicy complexity finishing with cigar box memories." - David Franz, winemaker
