Tasting Notes

A fresh, lively Riesling with a delicate green tinge and hints of freshly picked limes. The palate shows great fruit purity with a refreshingly crisp, dry finish and it is a wine that can be drunk now or aged with confidence for a few years where it will develop the complexity expected of a top flight Eden Valley Riesling. Being lower in alcohol (at 10.5%), this makes for a lovely fresh light wine to be enjoyed at anytime of day.

Producer details

Peter Lehmann started his own winery in 1979, partly as a means of helping with the glut of grapes then afflicting the Barossa. "I'll take your grapes and turn them into wine," he told the desperate growers, many of them conservative farmers of Silesian descent who regarded their old vines as part of their patrimony. "But I'll only be able to pay you when I sell the wine." They gratefully accepted. Without this deal, it is widely thought that the Barossa would have lost a huge chunk of its old vines. The 'Hill & Valley' wines are made from fruit selected, often from single vineyards, in the Barossa Valley and from the higher reaches of the adjacent Eden Valley.

In the vineyard

The grapes were sourced from vineyards on the Eastern slopes of Eden Valley. This east-facing side is particularly cool as it lies over 400 metres above sea level on acidic sandy soils ideal for enhancing the natural acid balance of an exceptional Riesling.

In the winery

The fruit was picked early, crushed, chilled and the juice immediately separated from the skins to enhance delicacy. Following cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine was clarified and bottled.

Food Recommendations

Anything light and Asian spiced, particularly seared sesame tuna steaks or Thai beef salad
