Colour is a bright lemon with green tinges.

This multiple medal winner has the classical Eden Valley lime bouquet and is showing the first hints of toastiness, the result of time in the bottle.

The palate is still remarkably youthful with fresh racy acidity and a honeyed deepening on the middle palate.

Eden Valley Riesling at its finest.

Riesling was first planted in the shallow, rocky soils of the Eden Valley, high in the Barossa ranges, in the early 1850's. Time has revealed this place to be a natural home for Riesling which, to quote Peter Lehmann, is the noblest white wine variety. The mature Eden Valley Riesling vineyards from which the winery draw their grapes produce wines with a unique sense of place and each year they are classified the very best to cellar in the Peter Lehmann winery.

It is the winery's belief that the Eden Valley is the finest place in Australia and the New World for this noble variety. They have been rewarded spectacularly with their Reserve Rieslings gaining a reputation for being one of Australia's great dry white wines and six times since 1991 declared 'Best Riesling in the World' at the International Wine and Spirit Competition in London.

Named the Wigan, after PLW's Chief Winemaker Andrew Wigan, who has been involved in the making of every Riesling bottled under the Peter Lehmann label since the beginning, the Wigan Riesling is a testament to his success with Riesling within Australia and on the International Wine Show circuits.
