Peter Lehmann - Art Series Classic Reisling 2011-13Barossa Valley
Peter Lehmann has led a colourful life. He created one of Australia's most respected and popular wine brands by defying accepted wisdom, courting near misses and narrow scrapes and never shirking the opportunity to challenge a norm. This range is a reflection of the colour and fun experienced as PL has lived his dream, with all his 'art and soul.
A young fresh Riesling combining the delightful citrus characters of high country Eden Valley and the soft round fruit of the Barossa.This wine is made in a refreshing style that bursts into the mouth with a gentle touch of sweetness lending it to countless occasions.
It has a delicate green, gold colour with vibrant, fresh floral notes and a hint of citrus. The palate shows great purity of fruit with a soft, moderately dry finish. Serve lightly chilled. It is a perfect aperitif and the ideal wine with fresh oysters, shellfish or pan-fried white fish
The 2011 vintage was awarded the prestigious and highly sought after Trophy for Best White Wine Under $20 at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show.
