Vale Peter Lehmann, a member of the Order of Australia, the original Baron of the Barossa, and a legend of Australian wine, helped shape the wine industry over seven decades. Peter Lehmann established the Tanunda-based winery that bears his name in 1979, creating a wine brand that today signifies quality Barossa winemaking. Each vintage, over 140 grape growers supply Peter Lehmann Wines with quality fruit from over 700 hand-tended vineyards located throughout the Barossa.
The Portrait Eden Valley Riesling is sourced from vineyards dotted throughout the cool climate, high altitude levels of the Eden Valley. All single vineyard fruit was vinified separately, then blended in line with the traditional Lehmann style - citrus, acid and multiple layers reflecting the individual vineyards.
A delicate green/gold colour leads to a fresh aroma of newly picked apples and limes. The palate is elegant with a crisp, dry finish as expected in a high class Riesling from a great vintage- delicious in its youth as a chilled white but it can be aged for a few years if desired during which time it will become richer with notes of toast and honey.
A lovely portrait of Eden Valley riesling. Pale bright quartz-green; the bouquet is floral with citrus blossom to the fore, the palate finely etched lime juice, the long finish with perfectly balanced acidity. Bargain, with even more in store.
