Peter Lehmann Masters Wigan Riesling 2011

£13.99

TASTING NOTE

Colour is vibrant lemon with a green tinge. Wigan Riesling displays the classic Eden Valley lime juice characters, with hints of honeyed bottle age character already showing through.

After a short burst of heat in late January and early February the weather settled down and was warm and stable throughout February and March, producing delicate white wines of exceptional quality.

The grapes were picked early and fermented cold in stainless steel for two weeks before clarification. Bottling took place immediately, then the wine was cellared at the winery for five years prior to release.

Andrew Wigan has had a hand in every Peter Lehmann wine since the first vintage in 1980. He revolutionised white winemaking with his passion for Riesling. This wine is named in his honour.

From the shallow rocky soils of the Eden Valley – one of the great Riesling sites of the world – the Wigan Riesling has become one of Australia’s most celebrated wines. It has been named ‘Best Riesling in the World’ in the International Wine and Sprit Competition six times in the past decade, and accumulated more than 80 trophies since its inaugural vintage as ‘Wigan’ in 2003 (previously ‘Reserve’ Riesling).  A mature wine with remarkable youth on the palate.
