Peter Lehmann Masters Wigan Riesling has received the accolades of ‘Best Riesling in the World’ (IWSC) six times. The 2015 vintage release is a brilliant pale green colour. Still in its infancy, this wine presents some toast characters amongst beautiful lime citrus and floral notes. Classic intense lime cordial flavours carry through resonant of a Eden Valley Riesling and complemented by lemon rind and crisp pure acidity.

"This has really transformed into a complex, bottle-matured riesling with lemon-rind, lemon-butter and toasty aromas. The palate is very smoothly arranged and the wine has taken on a glossy textural quality over the five years in bottle. The length and intensity here is so impressive. This is breathtakingly pure, yet complex and drinkable." 98 Points - Nick Stock, James Suckling

"A wine equally split between its freshness on the one hand and honeyed lime juice on the other. It's hard to see how it will increase in complexity, yet it will, as every vintage of Wigan has demonstrated."

Winery & Vintage Info

The Masters wines are named after a person whom, or event that, has played an intrinsic role in the Peter Lehmann story. Crafted from the classic Barossa varietals, the wines are released with 5 years of bottle age and will continue to age gracefully for many years.

Andrew Wigan was mentored by Peter Lehmann and was at his side when the winery was founded in 1979. He was Chief Winemaker from 1980 – 2014. Peter Lehmann’s reputation for Barossa Shiraz was soon complemented by Andrew’s passion for white wines. His refinement of the whites was revolutionary and his contribution to the Peter Lehmann story was recognised in 2003 with the re-naming of the revered ‘Reserve’ Riesling as ‘Wigan’ Riesling.

A traditionally wet winter, mild Spring and excellent fruit set provided a fantastic
start to the 2015 vintage. The 2015 harvest was an early vintage following a cool and dry growing season, however a timely rainfall event in January was a much needed saving grace. Mild weather from February to April set up our best Eden Valley Riesling vineyards to bear fruit of quality winemakers usually can only dream about.

The grapes were picked early and cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. Following a two-week fermentation period, the wine was clarified and bottled immediately before being cellared at the winery for five years prior to release.
