Tasting Note: The Classic Riesling has a delicate green, gold colour with vibrant, fresh floral notes and a hint of citrus. The palate shows great purity of fruit with soft, moderately dry finish.

Producer Details: A fifth generation Barossan, Peter Lehmann was born at Angaston in 1930, the son of a Lutheran pastor. His winemaking career began in 1947 as a 17 year-old with Yalumba where he worked under the mentorship and tutelage of the great Rudi Kronberger for 13 years until he was appointed Winemaker/Manager of Saltram Wines in Angaston. In that role for 20 years he built a national reputation for his high-quality, innovative Barossa Wines. He founded his own winery in 1979 in order to support the Barossa growers who were facing financial ruin in the face of a serious overproduction of grapes - he named his new venture Masterson after the Damon Runyon character Sky Masterson, acknowledging what a gamble he had taken. Peter Lehmann Wines soon became a producer of premium bottled wines with a well-deserved international reputation. However, the imminent withdrawal of the principle shareholder in 1993 threatened the company's survival and Lehmann was again forced to gamble - this time by offering equity in the company by public float. The growers with whom he had forged such lasting relationships and his loyal staff invested in the new enterprise together with thousands of small investors and the float succeeded almost overnight.

In The Vineyard: The grapes had a cool, slow ripening period which has in turn produced superb white wines with delicacy and finesse. Selected mature vineyards grown in both the Barossa and Eden Valleys.

In The Winery: The fruit was picked early, crushed, chilled and the juice immediately separated from the skins to enhance delicacy. Following cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine was clarified and bottled.
