Spring into Riesling

Enjoy Peter Lehmann’s selection of bright, aromatic and lifted Riesling wines this spring season.

Riesling is very much at the heart of the Barossa region, with the high altitudes and cool climate of Eden Valley allowing delicate aromas and zesty flavours to flourish and creating wines which are typically elegant, fragrant and finely structured.

Spring is the perfect time to delve into the noble variety and enjoy the refreshing and aromatic white wine that is elegant on the palate with a crisp dry finish.

Spring into Riesling with Peter Lehmann; explore our range and let the fragrant aromas of lime and citrus entice your taste buds over the warmer months as we honour some of Eden Valley’s finest selections.

Grown in the rocky soils of the Eden valley, the 2013 Masters Wigan Eden Valley Riesling has been named the ‘Best Riesling in the world’ six times in the international wine and spirit competition. Having accumulated more than 80 trophies in its time there’s no doubt this drop is a crowd favourite. Embodying great fruit purity, the 2013 Masters Wigan Eden Valley Riesling is refreshing and crisp, best served chilled and pairs perfectly with a fresh oysters, shellfish a pan fried fillet.

Our Portrait range is a testament to Peters promise to produce wine that showcase the Barossa’s true character.

With enticing aromas of freshly picked green apples and hints of citrus blossoms, 2017 Portrait Eden Valley Dry Riesling conquers elegance with its natural acidity and crisp dry finish.

The Hill & Valley Riesling is a classic example of a Peter Lehmann white wine, with traditional Eden Valley qualities that make this region so renowned.

A product of two of Eden Valley’s finest vineyards, The 2019 Hill & Valley Riesling is aromatic with lifted citrus florals and hints of mandarin.

Peter Lehmann Wines 2019 Vintage Update

“After a hot and dry January (understatement of the century), we saw a return to milder conditions for the first three weeks of February. Cool nights have helped Barossa white grapes and we predict to see an excellent Margaret Semillon as a result. A spike in temperature at the end of February brought ripeness and picking times forward, particularly for Shiraz and with whites complete we have turned our attention to reds. With smaller yields this year, fruit looks to be solid and consistent in quality. Our growers are working tirelessly to ensure any vine stress is kept at a minimum and canopies remain healthy.

From a winemaking perspective, Nigel is overseeing all operations whilst gearing up for the red grape intake. Brett and Brooke are working on white juices and ferments, whilst Tony and I are spending time in vineyards assessing quality and ripeness. All aspects of the winery and vineyard operations are being closely monitored by legendary winemaker Peter Scholz, with his shadow often darkening the hallways around break time each morning!"
