The Masters wines are named after a person whom, or event that, has played an intrinsic role in the Peter Lehmann story. Crafted from the classic Barossa varietals, the wines are released with 5 years of bottle age and will continue to age gracefully for many years. 

Andrew Wigan was mentored by Peter Lehmann and was at his side when the winery was founded in 1979. He was Chief Winemaker from 1980 - 2014. Peter Lehmann’s reputation for Barossa Shiraz was soon complemented by Andrew’s passion for white wines. His refinement of the whites was revolutionary and his contribution to the Peter Lehmann story was recognised in 2003 with the re-naming of the revered ‘Reserve’ Riesling as ‘Wigan’ Riesling.


Wine Profile
Awards
5 STAR WINERY RATING James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion International Winemaker of the Year 2003 & 2006, Australian Producer of the Year 2003, 2006 & 2008 - International Wine & Spirit Competition.
Production Notes
A traditionally wet winter, mild Spring and excellent fruit set provided a fantastic start to the 2015 vintage. The 2015 harvest was an early vintage following a cool and dry growing season, however a timely rainfall event in January was a much needed saving grace. Mild weather from February to April set up our best Eden Valley Riesling vineyards to bear fruit of quality winemakers usually can only dream about.
Winemaker Notes
Awarded 'Best Riesling in the World' (IWSC) six times. Brilliant pale green. Still in its infancy, this wine presents some toast characters amongst beautiful lime citrus and floral notes. Classic intense lime cordial flavours carry through resonant of a Eden Valley Riesling and complemented by lemon rind and crisp pure acidity.
Food Pairing Notes
A wine of celebrity status, it is best enjoyed for celebratory occasions. Also try pairing with fresh seafood, like oysters, or Andrew Wigan’s all-time favourite – pan fried fish and homemade chips, with extra lemon.
Production
The grapes were picked early and cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. Following a two-week fermentation period, the wine was clarified and bottled immediately before being cellared at the winery for five years prior to release.
Other Notes
Released within 5 years of bottle age, this wine is ready to enjoy now, otherwise it can comfortably cellar until 2029.
