Mk 03 – Cabernet Shiraz

Two varieties
Of the incredible array of table wines produced in Australia since the 1800s, it is the amalgam of Cabernet & Shiraz that has made what is widely accepted as the country’s greatest and has become internationally recognised as Australia’s signature red.

Two regions
Of all the regions to grow Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, it is Coonawarra and the Barossa that have over time demonstrated both excellence and consistency in producing Australia’s finest examples of each. Their respective climatic conditions are ideally suited to each variety, and provide the best possible components for this classic blend.

Two families
The partnership between the Lehmann & Hesketh families stretches back to the 1970’s when Peter & Robert formed Masterson Wines. This was the genesis of Peter Lehmann Wines, and the collaboration that famously saved the livelihoods of many Barossa grape growers. Their sons Jonathon and Phil are the next generation working together, and it is their respective vineyards in Coonawarra and the Barossa that supply the fruit for this wine.
