Max & Me

Max & Me small-batch wines by Phil and Sarah Lehmann, from their rugged and beautiful Eden Valley Property, in the Central-East of the Barossa ranges

About the winery
Boongarrie Estate is Phil and Sarah's property in the Eden Valley, in the Barossa Ranges. The landscape is undulating and studded with ancient redgums and rocky outcrops. At 460m above sea-level, the elevation tempers the summer days and provides cool air flow during the nights, ideal for nuanced and mineral flavours in the wines. On suitable sites within the property, 10 hectares is planted to vineyard (Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon est. 1998), and a 4 hectare Olive grove planted to Manzanilla Cacereña, Penduleno and Kalamata (est 2004).  Philosophy for managing the land is to look after the soils, and avoid chemical inputs where possible. Winemaking is traditional open-fermenters for the reds, with elevage in new and old French oak 300 and 500 L barrels. Riesling is cool fermented in stainless steel, and bottled after a few months lees contact post fermentation.

History & Geography
Phil and Sarah have been farming 'Boongarrie' since 2002, but although Phil's professional work has been a winemaker, it was not until 2011 that they released their inaugural wine, a Shiraz from the property.
