The Chardonnay winemaking philosophy at Peter Lehmann is about making a delicate, soft refreshing style with the
accent very much on letting the fruit flavors come to the fore. By blending fruit from vineyards in the lower Barossa
Valley with those from the higher, cooler Eden Valley, Peter Lehmann makes a wine with great depth of flavor and a truly
stylish, taut structure.
Oak fermentation and maturation is used only sparingly - usually just 10% of this wine is fermented
in French oak to give a touch of beautiful textural creaminess which adds complexity to the palate. A very stylish wine
that showcases the primary fruit characters and yet gives a touch of softness that many people find so appealing in
Delicate pale straw in color. A soft creamy nose with peach notes and alluring barrel and wild ferment
characters. A taut palate. Restrained; lean and flinty acidity guides nicely weighted fruit and complex
oak through to a clean minerally finish. A restrained and stylish Chardonnay from a superb white wine
vintage. Enjoy in its vibrant youth, or cellar for a further 5 plus years.
Perfect accompaniment to fuller flavoured fish such as salmon, or creamy pasta dishes, chicken pie or a chicken, leek and mushroom risotto.
"Vanilla-scented oak frames peaches and tropical fruit upfront, and then this wine picks up just enough crisp, citrusy flavors on the finish to give ti a sense of balance and focus." 88 Points,
