- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
This is a wine style that Dave Lehmann thinks should be a staple of the Barossa.
It’s 75% Riesling, 25% Semillon from Eden Valley. the two varieties working in tandem to create a crunchy, crisp white wine which is insanely easy to drink.
Like all of Dave’s wines, this is excellent value and is ripe and ready to rip into in the warmth of the Australian Summer. Get the prawns ready.
What It Tastes Like
This is fresh as a daisy. Dainty floral notes, lemon skin and pith. Cool easy flow of citrus flavours that build to be actually quite round in the mid palette. Minerality kicks in through the finish. Fresh and friendly feeling. Great value.

About the Producer
Dave is a Barossa boy, through and through. Son of the legendary Barossa icon, Peter Lehmann, Dave is forging his own path as a winemaker. He combines a traditional look at the classic Barossa varieties with some adventurous (and at times ludicrously ambitious) ideas. But one thing is for sure, whether it is making a ripping Barossa Shiraz or a Rosé from 100+ varieties, his love for his region will be at the core of everything he does.
Eden Valley is the cooler more elegant brother of the brawny Barossa. Renowned for slick Shiraz, floral and lifted Riesling and even some stonkingly good Cabernet, the wines of this area provide a great counterpoint to the usual out and out power that South Australian wine has become known for.
Riesling is the king of white grapes. With unparalleled versatility, it rightfully carries the ‘Noble’ name tag. We make extraordinary Riesling in Australia, from far and wide. From the classic searing, razor-sharp styles in the Clare and Eden Valleys to the fragrant and enchanting wines of the Great Southern, Australian Riesling is a chameleon that can take on many forms. Sweet, steely, lean or textured, the world of Riesling is a thing of wonder that should be explored by all true lovers of wine.
