Peter Lehmann Layers White
£11.99

Layers is a unique blend that delivers a highly enjoyable journey of discovery for the sense 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.

Description

Details

Peter Lehmann, with 33 vintages already under his belt, started his own winery in 1979, partly as a means of helping with the glut of grapes then afflicting the Barossa. "I'll take your grapes and turn them into wine," he told the desperate growers, many of them conservative farmers of Silesian descent who regarded their old vines as part of their patrimony. "But I'll only be able to pay you when I sell the wine." They gratefully accepted. Without this deal, it is widely thought that the Barossa would have lost a huge chunk of its old vines. Since its first vintage, the Peter Lehmann winery has championed Shiraz and Semillon, the two great traditional varieties of the Barossa. The Layers blends use these two varieties as a base upon which to build a wine that expresses the new face of the Barossa, using varieties that are new or innovative. These smartly packaged wines show that while Peter Lehmann is a traditional winery, it continues to be as innovative today as it was 35 years ago.

Vineyards
Peter Lehmann Wines works with over 140 growers across the length and breadth of the Barossa Valley region, with access to over 750 individual vineyard sites. Fruit for this wine came from selected vineyards in close proximity to Adelaide.

Vinification
Cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks prior to blending and early bottling have produced a lively and fresh yet complex white wine.
