Overview

The Eden Valley region is well suited to Pinot Gris with its cool moderate temperatures and elevated altitude, allowing long slow ripening, producing a well-balanced wine with heightened acidity and natural fruit flavour.

Nathan Burley’s vineyard on the edge of High Eden Valley, planted in shallow, rocky soils where low yielding fruit is hand-picked. This aromatic and textural wine is typical of the Australian take on the French-derived wine style, and is harmonious with many food flavours due to its layered complex palate.

Expert Reviews

This drinks really well and has enough interest in texture to let you know you’re drinking something slightly classier than you thought—it ticks lots of boxes for the variety in pear drops, light oily texture, citrusy acidity and a hint of spice. Good gear. 91 points - WBM (AUG/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes

Pinot Gris grown high in the Eden Valley was picked a little later in the season to make a more textural white wine.

Colour

The colour is delicate with a green tinge leading to an aroma of fresh pear.

Palate

The palate is rich and soft with a pleasingly dry finish and while drinking beautifully now can be aged for a few more years if desired during which time it will gain further depth and complexity.

Food Matching

Serve lightly chilled with pan-fried salmon, roast pork and apple sauce or chicken and mushroom pie.

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.
