Peter Lehmann Wigan Eden Valley Riesling 2017


Named after Andrew Wigan’s talent with white wines the 2017 is released after 5 years bottle age. Lemon myrtle, calamansi lime skin and star jasmine blooms. Grapefruit flesh, cut honeydew and Granny smith apple curls. A self raising flour plume with a touch of almond skin. Acidity flows naturally and a hessian-like weave of skin phenolics add further dimension to the palate. This is still tightly coiled but beginning to show how time will unfurl the delicate Eden valley flavours. A classic and yet modern interpretation of Eden Riesling. This is a crunchy, citrus driven wine now and will only continue to get better with age. Think along the lines of another decade or so. Serve with a sliced fennel salad with peeled prawns.
