Peter Lehmann - Art 'n' Soul Chardonnay 2011Barossa 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.
The Peter Lehmann Chardonnay philosophy is about making a delicate, soft, refreshing style and letting the natural fruit flavours come to the fore. Fruit is sourced from the low lying Barossa Valley floor to the cool, high Eden Valley delivering a wine with depth of flavour and a stylish, taut structure.
Wild ferments, some French oak maturation and yeast lees stirring add a touch of complexity to this elegant wine style.
A blend from Barossa Valley (69%) and Eden Valley (31%) mature Chardonnay vineyards.
It makes a splendid accompaniment to roast chicken or pork or creamy pasta dishes.
