Riesling Eden Valley South Australia
Peter Lehmann is an international sensation at Riesling, having been declared Best Riesling in the World no fewer than five times at the London International. Named for Andrew Wigan who has been the maker of every Riesling bottled under the Peter Lehmann label since inaugural vintage.
Wigan offers a rare opportunity for enthusiasts to experience the delights of a classic and mature Riesling wine. Eden Valley is home to Australia's finest, time has revealed the place to be a natural home for Riesling, which many winemakers agree is the noblest white varietal. The mature Eden Valley vineyards produce wines with a unique sense of place. Each year Peter Lehmann classifies the very best, to hold back for extended ageing. From low yielding Eden Valley Riesling vineyards, the grapes are picked early and fermented cold in tank. Following two weeks of vinification, Wigan is treated to clarification and bottled immediately, followed by four years of ageing under the Peter Lehmann cellars. Alcohol 12.5%
A bright lemon colour with green tinges. This multiple gold medal winner exudes the classic Eden Valley lime bouquet and is showing the first hints of toastiness. The palate is still remarkably youthful with fresh racy acidity and a honeyed deepening in the middle, superb flinty minerality sliced through by the backbone of fresh lime juice and a touch of honey. Eden Valley Riesling at its finest.
