Peter Lehmann H & V Riesling 2012

Vintage: 2012

Style: Dry white

Country: Australia

Region: Eden Valley, SA

 

Overview: One month ago a wine industry icon passed away. Peter Lehmann is considered to be one of the pioneers of the modern wine industry in Australia. The original Baron of Barossa was known for his innovation and passion for the industry. The Peter Lehmann brand will remain an immortalization of the man and reflect all that he had achieved.

The H & V range, or Hill and Valley, is a relatively new label on the market. Before tasting this wine I had not visited the H & V range. This Riesling comes from the Eden Valley which is a sub-region of the Barossa Valley. Its higher elevation ensures cooler climates, perfect for growing Riesling.

 

Tasting note: A delicate nose of talc, citrus and an underlying minerality that continues through to the palate with powerful lemon pith characters but finishes with elegant floral notes. A great example of pure, clean fruit and boosts a modest alcohol content of 10.5%.

 

Final Say: All elegance and restraint, a great example of dry Riesling. $20-$25 a bottle

 

Score: 17.5 out of 20
