Overview

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.

Expert Reviews

Brilliant quartz-green; absolutely stacked with lime juice fruit, yet has finely balanced and persistent acidity to hold its shape and length well into the future; dwell on the aftertaste to really appreciate the quality of this wine. Rating 96 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2015

Brilliant quartz-green; one of the most consistent rieslings at the top end of the quality tree; it is absolutely stacked with lime juice fruit, yet has finely balanced and persistent acidity to hold its shape and length well into the future; dwell on the aftertaste to really appreciate the quality of this wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Colour is delicate lemon with a green tinge.

Aroma

The bouquet shows classic Eden Valley lime juice characters with some toasty, freshly baked brioche notes arising from 5 years of bottle aging.

Palate

The palate is pristine and finishes dry with zesty minerality.

Cellaring

This is a stylish Riesling of great class and will repay a further 5-10 years careful cellaring during which time it will become richer and more complex.

Food Matching

A superb accompaniment to oysters, shellfish pan-fried white fish fillets or a roast chicken.

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.
