Named for Andrew Wigan who has been the maker of every Riesling bottled under the Peter Lehmann label since the very beginning, Wigan is a testament to Andrew's success within Australia and the international show circuit. From low yielding Eden Valley Riesling vineyards, the grapes are picked early and chill fermented for a fortnight.
