Peter Lehmann Eden Valley Riesling 2004
Riesling from South Australia, Australia
The cooler slopes of South Australia's Eden Valley consistently produce many of Australia's great Rieslings. Peter Lehmann Wines have won the International Wine & Spirit Competition's prestigious Peter Sichel Trophy for Best Riesling, World Wide on four occasions with Eden Valley Rieslings.
As young wines, Eden Valley Rieslings show floral aromatics and fresh, tangy crispness. Deliciously lively in their youth, Eden Valley Rieslings tend to soften and honey with age.
The 2004 Eden Valley Riesling has been bottled using the Stelvin closure to maximize freshness and guarantee quality. Lemon/lime flavors with hints of honey to come. Superbly crisp with the typical steely mineral backbone of an Eden Valley Riesling from an excellent vintage.
Excellent with pan-fried fish, freshly shucked oysters, seared scallops, and freshly caught yabbies.

These amazing resources enable them to craft wines for every occasion, including their flagship, Stonewall. Peter Lehmann Wines has developed a reputation as one of Australia's most respected, energetic and innovative premium wine producers and today, the team continues to create wines that delight wine lovers around the globe.

The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
