Winemaker Notes

Riesling was first planted in the shallow, rocky soils of the Eden Valley in the early 1850's. Time has revealed this place to be a natural home for Riesling which, to quote Peter Lehmann, is ‘the noblest white wine variety'. Our Eden Valley Rieslings have the unique distinction of being awarded the trophy for the Best Riesling in the World at the International Wine and Spirit Competition in London 5 times – more than any winemaker in the world.

As young wines they show lovely floral aromatics and fresh, tangy crispness. Zesty, clean and refreshing wines that showcase the wonderful crisp mineral acidity typical of the finest Eden Valley Rieslings. As they mature, these flavours soften and honey with age. We believe Eden Valley Riesling to be one of Australia's most distinctive wine styles.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JH 95
Australian Wine Companion
Peter Lehmann's wild ride through life has paralleled that of riesling, and his endurance is akin to that of riesling. This absurdly lovely wine has a fragrant, lime-accented bouquet, the palate featuring excellent mouthfeel and length; the fruit runs in an unbroken line through to the finish and aftertaste.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Bright and tangy, with lovely pineapple and grapefruit flavors that remain juicy and vivid through the dry, silky finish.

Sauternes

View all wine

Sweet and unctuous but delightfully charming, the finest Sauternes typically express flavors of exotic dried tropical fruit, candied apricot, dried citrus peel, honey or ginger and a zesty beam of acidity.

Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, and Muscadelle are the grapes of Sauternes. But Sémillon's susceptibility to the requisite noble rot makes it the main variety and biggest contributor to what makes Sauternes so unique. As a result, most Sauternes estates are planted to about 80% Sémillon. Sauvignon is prized for its balancing acidity and Muscadelle adds aromatic complexity to the blend with Sémillon.

Botrytis cinerea or “noble rot” is a fungus that grows on grapes only in specific conditions and its onset is crucial to the development of the most stunning of sweet wines.

In the fall, evening mists develop along the Garonne River, and settle into the small Sauternes district, creeping into the vineyards and sitting low until late morning. The next day, the sun has a chance to burn the moisture away, drying the grapes and concentrating their sugars and phenolic qualities. What distinguishes a fine Sauternes from a normal one is the producer’s willingness to wait and tend to the delicate botrytis-infected grapes.
