Winemaker Notes

Eight Songs Shiraz was born of our love of art and music and inspired by an operatic work, ‘Eight Songs for Mad King', first performed in the Barossa in 1993.

The colour is beautiful dark cherry with a rich garnet rim. The nose is deep chocolate, plum fruits and cedary notes. The palate is richly opulent, beautifully structured with layered, fully integrated tannins supporting the depth of primary fruit characters and spicy overtones.

Eight Songs Shiraz sings with rare roast beef, rich casseroles, beef and game pies, and of course, a great aged cheddar.

Critical Acclaim

JH 95
Australian Wine Companion

Pure fruitcake and chocolate bouquet; loaded with blackberry on the palate, there are ample levels of dark fruit, tar, licorice and a touch of spice; rich on entry, the acidity provides freshness and contrast.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

This full bodied, richly textured Shiraz is ready to drink, with slightly lifted aromas of plums and baking spices and a velvety mouthfeel. Long and supple on the finish, it should continue to drink well though at least 2018.

Wine Spectator

Polished, round and distinctive for its dark chocolate and chili pepper undertones around a core of ripe currant and blackberry. Shows power and finesse. Drink now through 2015. 200 cases imported.

W&S 91
Wine & Spirits

This shiraz has begun to soften with age, its mineral tannins revealing layers of herbs, sleek plum and strawberry fruit. The flavors are saturated without being sweet, ready to decant for roast leg of lamb.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

Peter Lehmann's 2005 Eight Songs Shiraz offers a medium-deep garnet color and evolving aromas of mulberries, warm blackberry, Chinese dried plum, earth, toasted nuts, coffee and smoked bacon. Well structured with medium-firm fine-grained tannins and high acidity, this is a concentrated, full-bodied style with great balance and a long savory finish. Drinking now, it should continue to develop and cellar to 2018+.
