Peter Lehmann Chardonnay Art Series 2008
The Chardonnay winemaking philosophy at Peter Lehmann is about making a delicate, soft refreshing style with the accent very much on letting the fruit flavours come to the fore. By blending fruit from vineyards in the lower Barossa Valley with those from the higher, cooler Eden Valley, they can make a wine with great depth of flavour with a truly stylish, taut structure. Oak fermentation and maturation is used only sparingly. This wine is fermented in French oak to give a touch of beautiful textural creaminess which adds complexity to the palate. This is a very stylish wine that showcases the primary fruit characters and yet gives a touch of softness that many people find so appealing in Chardonnay.
Peter Lehmann Wines is one of Australia’s most respected and innovative winemakers, creating wines that delight wine lovers around the globe. Winemaking operations are carried out at a single site located near Tanunda, in the heart of the internationally famous Barossa Valley, South Australia.
