Traditional Australian dry Riesling is quite unique. It’s very different from Riesling grown elsewhere, and it’s remarkably consistent. I know there are supposed to be regional differences between wines from the two top regions – Clare and Eden Valley – but I’m not sure I’d pick them blind. Here’s a really good example of an ageworthy Eden Valley Riesling that’s beginning to develop nicely.
Peter Lehmann Wigan Riesling 2003 Eden Valley, Australia
11% alcohol. Aromatic, limey nose with some subtle toast and faint petrol notes. The palate is taut, limey and dry with good acidity and some complexity. Still very fresh and intense, but with more complex notes emerging. 91/100
