This wine shows delicate green gold hues with a bouquet of fresh limes and honey. The palate has a classic lime juice backbone and is refreshingly dry, finishing with great acidity. Simply magnificent Eden Valley Riesling.

Brilliant green-straw; a great riesling in traditional dry style, the fruit hyper-intense, green lime and mineral notes wound around each other; excellent balance and length.Rating 96 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2011
Winery Tasting Notes
Colour is vibrant lemon with green tinges.
This multiple trophy winner from a stunning vintage shows classical Eden Valley lime juice with a hint of warm buttered toast.
The palate is remarkably youthful with zesty acidity and a fine, mineral, dry finish. This is Eden Valley at its very best.
A perfect aperitif. Also a superb accompaniment to oysters, shellfish, and grilled white fish.
Thanks to the screwcap closure, the wine will gain complexity with further careful cellaring.
Named the Wigan, after PLW’s Chief Winemaker Andrew Wigan, who has been involved in the making of every Riesling bottled under the Peter Lehmann label since the beginning, the Wigan Riesling is a testament to his success with Riesling within Australia and on the International Wine Show circuits.
