Firm, full and bursting with flavor, this dry 1999 Peter Lehmann Eden Valley Riesling is no wimpy wine. When young, the wine possesses a lovely bouquet with fresh citrus and lime flavors on the palate. Deepening in color and gaining complexity with age, this Riesling will ultimately reveal more of its flesh. Although Lehmann’s wines drink well young, they age beautifully. As testimony to the quality of Peter Lehmann, Eden Valley Riesling from the 1982 and 1993 vintages won dry Riesling of the show at the 1991 and 1998 London International Wine & Spirit Competitions.
This is one of the few dry Rieslings that’s really dry, it makes a wonderful accompaniment to oysters, as well as Shrimp on the Barbie. We also recommend it with red snapper and dishes prepared with fresh ginger, especially when consumed in its youth. Enjoy mates!
