  • Vintage 2014 at Peter Lehmann Wines

    23 Apr 2014

    The 2014 vintage at Peter Lehmann Wines kicked off on the 30th of January, our second earliest start ever, with the last grapes being crushed on the 28th of April- quite a long, drawn out affair. The crop was small for the third year in succession due largely to poor fruit set in Spring and then a burst of very hot weather in January and early February. We hadn’t been picking long when the Valley experienced just over 100mm of rain in two days. Crushing stopped for a week or so and we all held our breath, but rather than causing any damage, the rain proved to be a blessing as the whole countryside softened and the mild weather that followed for the remainder of vintage allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly with no stress.

    The Eden Valley Rieslings have great natural acidity and delicacy as well as fruit intensity. Semillon, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris have produced stylish dry whites of excellent character and keep a look out for our first release of the Spanish white, Verdejo, grown on the deep sands of Vine Vale and soon to be released under the Hill & Valley label as a single vineyard wine. The reds at this stage look very good with Shiraz, Cabernet and Tempranillo in particular showing deep, vibrant colour, lovely structure and varietal intensity. Overall we rate the 2014 vintage very highly and look forward to introducing these exciting wines as the year unfolds.
