Peter Lehmann Portrait Riesling

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Peter Lehmann is one of Australia’s great wine companies, and the man behind it is also a great guy too who did much to get the Barossa Valley to where it is today. Riesling has always been a speciality and this is a super drop with loads of crisp, limey citrus fruit flavours. Summer drinking at its best.

Winemaker's Notes

The Portrait wines embody the original promise Peter Lehmann made to the grape growers to make wines that show what the Barossa is all about. With a “family” of more than 140 growersacross the length and breadth of the Barossa, Peter Lehmann has created a portrait of the region with the top varietals that have made it famous.

Peter Lehmann calls Riesling “the noblest white wine variety” and traditionally produces a dry, crisp wine style.

The Portrait Eden Valley Dry Riesling is sourced from vineyards dotted throughout the cool climate,high altitude levels of the esteemed Eden Valley. All single vineyard fruit was vinified separately, then blended in line with the traditional Lehmann style - citrus, crisp acidity and multiple layers reflecting the individual vineyards. We believe Eden Valley Riesling to be one of Australia's most distinctive wine styles.

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2012 Vintage) says
The Barossa Wine Show delivered a result for the people this year, naming an $18 sensation as its finest white wine of any variety and any age. The team at Lehmanns are riesling superstars, and it’s testimony to their wizardry and to season that even their entry wine can look as magnificent as this at such a young age. It ticks every box: delicate fragrance of lime blossom and lemon zest, precise palate focus of granny smith apples, slatey structure and an outstanding acid line that carries long into the finish.

Bright, light straw-green; the wine provides a fascinating contrast to the Lehmann H&V Barossa Riesling, firmer, more intense and filled with zesty lime juice flavours, bolstered and lengthened by good acidity; it carries its message through the length of the palate and aftertaste.
