The company will be distributing three ward-winning labels from the winery: Wildcard, Art ‘n’ Soul and Portrait.

Martin McAuley, managing director at United Wines, Martin McAuley, says that Peter Lehmann has an “unrivalled reputation in Australian wine production”:

“We are delighted to partner with Liberty Wines, Peter Lehmann’s UK distributor, to bring new wines to the Northern Ireland marketplace,” he added. “The labels we are introducing will appeal across a number of palates, price points and meet current market demands.”

Commenting on the launch of the new range, Jon Worsley, commercial director at Liberty Wines said:

“It’s exciting to see new wines from such a respected brand coming into the Northern Ireland marketplace and there is no doubt that Peter Lehmann is held in high regard within the industry.

“Enthusiasts will now be able to enjoy award-winning wines from one of the oldest winemaking communities in Australia which is home to some of the oldest vineyards in the world, many still flourishing on their original pre-Phylloxera roots.”

The new range of Australian wines is now available exclusively from United Wine Merchants.
