PETER LEHMANN LAYERS ADELAIDE - 2009
Year two of Layers is a blend of Semillon (39%), Muscat (23%), Gewurztraminer (16%), Pinot Gris (16%) and Chardonnay (6%). Cold fermented with only 11.5% alcohol the wine sees no oak, only stainless steel.
Golden color with lots of citrus and honeydew melon on the nose. Great mouthfeel with peach, citrus, melon, tropical fruits and honey on the finish. Fresh, vibrant, smooth, balanced.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Another great year for Layers. Although I'm scoring it identically to last year's vintage, I think 2008 was slightly better. That said, this is still a wonderful wine and a terrific blend. The low alcohol makes it a terrific summer white. Retails for around $16. A great value wine for this kind of quality.
