Peter Lehmann Masters ‘Wigan’ Riesling 2011
- Region:Eden Valley South Australia, Australia
- Availability:Victoria and Tasmania
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 having been named ‘Best Riesling in the World’ by International Wine and Sprit Competition six times since 1991, and being awarded over 80 trophies and countless medals since its inaugural vintage as ‘Wigan’ in 2003 (previously ‘Reserve’ Riesling). A mature wine with remarkable youth on the palate, Wigan proves Peter Lehmann’s belief that Riesling is indeed the most noble of white varieties.
The Masters wines are the top tier of Peter Lehmann’s original classic Barossa varietals, made for the long haul and released with bottle age to capture their full potential. These wines are named after a person or event that has played an intrinsic role in the Peter Lehmann story.
Chief Winemaker, Andrew Wigan, was mentored by Peter Lehmann, and was at his side when the winery was founded in 1979. He has had a hand in every Peter Lehmann wine since.
