Overview

The Hill & Valley Series wines honour the greatness of our growers' vineyards that have defined quality at Peter Lehmann Wines since our foundation in 1979.

Each vintage we keep certain parcels of fruit separate and release them as individual wines. We believe these wines to be a true expression of the varietal characters and unique terroir of the vineyards from which they are made.

A classic Peter Lehmann Riesling showing delicate fruit purity and the hallmark mineral typicity of Eden Valley.

The grapes were sourced from the Petney’s single-vineyard atop the High Eden Valley in the Eastern Barossa Ranges. This steep east-facing site is particularly cool as it lies over 420m above sea level on shallow rocky soils – ideal for enhancing the natural acid balance of an exceptional Riesling.

Expect this captivating wine to show great longevity as it narrowly missed Wigan, our top Riesling and will reward with patient cellaring.

Expert Reviews

One of the most exciting new Eden Valley riesling releases in years, this is the wine that the Lehmann wizards have dubbed “baby Wigan”. Sourced from a single vineyard, the highest from which Lehmann sources in High Eden, it narrowly missed out on being anointed as this year’s Wigan for release in four year’s time. One of the most refined and pure wines of the vintage, it’s achingly pristine, impeccably poised, crystalline and underlined by beautifully structured, slatey minerality. Benchmark Lehmann.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In the face of a serious overproduction of grapes and the real possibility of growers facing financial ruin, Peter Lehmann found some investment partners, established a consortium and built the Peter Lehmann Wines winery. It was 1979.The first vintage was processed in 1980 and in 1982 the winery was formally named Peter Lehmann Wines. From then on, its wines have been marketed under the Peter Lehmann Wines label.

As an experienced winemaker, Peter Lehmann was all too aware of the challenges facing a young winery in a competitive market. Growth was well planned, slow and steady.

Initially, the winery facility was built to process fruit purchased from the local growers. Carefully and strategically, the Peter Lehmann Wines operation moved on from the bulk wine market to become a producer of premium bottled wines with a well-deserved international reputation.

As well as purchasing grapes from about 185 local independent growers, Peter Lehmann Wines has its own vineyards, which produce about 2% of its requirements.The famous Barossa wine region is a little over an hour by car north of Adelaide, South Australia’s capital. The Barossa comprises two regions, the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, and these regions encompass a myriad of sub-districts.

The care and consideration which Peter Lehmann Wines brings to the selection of grapes enable the winery to produce a wide range of distinctive, award-winning and internationally acclaimed wines.

Our wines are created from grapes purchased from about 165 carefully selected independent growers as well as grapes grown in the four company-owned vineyards. Many of our growers’ families have worked the same vineyards for five and, in some cases, six generations. These Barossa vignerons tend to around 900 individual vineyards that run the gamut of the Barossa, through Lyndoch, Vine Vale, Light Pass, Stonewell, Greenock, Ebenezer and the Eden Valley.
