Released as a 5 Year old.
Andrew Wigan has had a hand in every Peter Lehmann wine since the first vintage in 1980. He revolutionised white winemaking with his passion for Riesling. This wine is named in his honour.
From the shallow rocky soils of the Eden Valley – one of the great Riesling sites of the world – the Wigan Riesling has become one of Australia’s most celebrated wines. It has been named ‘Best Riesling in the World’ in the International Wine and Siprit Competition six times in the past decade, and accumulated more than 80 trophies since its inaugural vintage as ‘Wigan’ in 2003 (previously ‘Reserve’ Riesling). A mature wine with remarkable youth on the palate.
“Maturity meets freshness here to deliver a riesling that is simply stunning. It’s totally true to its Eden Valley roots, offering varietal perfume and “chalky” regional character. A few years in bottle has allowed the flavour to build and the palate to fill out.” – 5 Stars and Best Riesling Winewise Championship 2017
“It’s toasty yet fresh. It’s complex yet approachable. A glorious amalgam of flavours from glace lemon and lime, juicy with superfine acidity ensuring it’s in a good spot today and for some time yet.” – 97 Points Jane Faulkner for James Halliday’s Wine Companion
“This has impressive power and the gentle weathering of five years in bottle has delivered a wine with immense charm. Lemon and quartz, from start to finish, smoky minerals, fine-etched acidity, and great length. A benchmark. Drink now or hold for another decade or maybe two” – 98 Points Nick Stock for James Suckling
