Peter Lehmann Red Blend Barossa Layers 2010
Semillon, Muscat, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay, each add character to the final blend. An attractive pale yellow with green tints, it has aromas of citrus, hints of peach and aromatic lifted spiciness. It has excellent structure and a soft creamy mouth-feel, delightful depth on the middle palate and finishes wonderfully fresh with a mouthful of crunchy fruit.
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.
A nice white blend. Not for the person looking for a real dry white wine.
External Reviews for Peter Lehmann Red Blend Barossa Layers
INTRIGUINGLY COMPLEX, SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL Peter Lehmann's 'Layers' range of wines are a unique blend that deliver a highly enjoyable journey of discovery for the senses in each and every glass. As 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 : 55% Shiraz, 18% Tempranillo, 17% Mourvedre and 10% Grenache Region : Australia / Barossa Maker : Andrew Wigan Notes : A vibrant red cherry colour, this is a real multi-dimensional wine with all four grape varietals adding their own unique characters to the final blend. A real burst of red berries and spice on the nose with a smooth mouth filling juice give way slowly to a softly textured finish. Serve : Ideally drunk young with Mediterranean dishes of meat, spicy Indian style curries and hearty casseroles. ABV : 14.50%
