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 the grapes picked from premium vineyards high in the hills of the Eden Valley, 2017 Portrait Eden Valley Dry Riesling is delicious in its youth or can be cellared with confidence. Enjoy as the perfect aperitif or a companion to any Asian cuisine.

2016 Portrait Eden Valley Dry Riesling is delicate and elegant with aromas of apples and lime. Serve chilled in its youth to enjoy the zesty clean finish, or age to discover richer notes of toast and honey. The perfect way to complement a spring seafood dinner of fresh oysters, prawns or white fish.

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. The long and pure flavours of lemon pith make this wine a drop that speaks of its region and is best accompanied by freshly shucked oysters or shellfish.

Visit our cellar door and experience a true sense of Barossan hospitality as you delve into our Riesling range. Choose from our tasting experiences to sample and taste across the Peter Lehmann wines’ portfolio or enjoy our selection of locally produced food offerings.

Mulled Wine Recipe

Add some spice to your next winter entertaining occasion with this classic mulled wine recipe.

We have selected the Peter Lehmann Wines 2015 Clancy’s red blend to include in this winter warmer. This wine is beautifully fruit forward, perfect for a classic mulled wine recipe. You can also add a splash of Peter Lehmann Wines 2002 Vintage Port to make it even more delicious which is sure to keep your guest snug and smiling. 

Serves 5 – 6

INGREDIENTS

1 cup of water
6 cloves
3 star anise
1 cinnamon stick
¼ cup of caster sugar
1 small whole nutmeg
1 orange
1 bottle of Clancy’s red blend
Splash of PLW VP (optional)

METHOD

1. Add the water to a medium sized pot over a high heat
2. Add cloves, star anise, cinnamon stick and caster sugar
3. Grate nutmeg, to taste and add to the pot
4. Zest the orange before slicing and adding the slices and the zest to the pot
5. Bring to the boil and stir intermittently for 5 minutes
6. Reduce heat and then add Peter Lehmann Wines Clancys Red Blend and VP
7. Serve in a mug or insulated glass.

TIP: It’s also easy to make in the slow cooker or even Instant Pot, if you prefer.  The rule of mulled wine is to make sure you do not boil the alcohol. Reduce the heat and let the recipe cool slightly before adding the wine. 

Leave the mulled wine to simmer for at least 15 minutes, and up to 3 or 4 hours, so that all of the delicious flavours can come together.  Then strain out the spices, and serve warm.
