Peter Lehmann Layers White Adelaide New 2008
Layers is a unique blend that delivers a highly enjoyable journey of discovery for the senses in each and every glass. Finely structured lemon tinged Semillon provides a wonderful backbone to support the soft floral aromatics of Muscat entwined with the delicate spice of Gewürztraminer. Pinot Gris introduces texture and mouthfeel to complete a wonderfully flavoursome wine. This complements a wide variety of seafood, white meats, salad and Asian inspired dishes. Best served chilled.

BEST WHITE WINE - ROYAL ADELAIDE SHOW 2011 A young fresh Riesling combining the delightful citrus characters of high country Eden Valley and the soft round fruit of the Barossa. A 5th generation Barossan, Peter Lehmann was the son of a Pastor and was born in Angaston in 1930. He started wine-making in 1947 under the mentorship of the great Rudi Kronberger, moving on after thirteen years to become manager and wine producer at Saltram Wines. His own estate was founded in 1979, to support the Barossa growers facing financial ruin due to overproduction, and he soon became acknowledged as a producer of premium quality wines gaining an international reputation and following. James Halliday, the eminent wine writer said "It's not often a person becomes a legend in their own lifetime" Grapes : 100% Riesling Region : Australia / Barossa Maker : Andrew Wigan Notes : A delightful Green and Gold colour showing vibrant, fresh floral notes with a lovely citrus hint.
