Light yellow with a green hue, a lemon bouquet with lime, quince and white petals, soft and rounded on the palate, crisp acidity, mature, juicy fruit, a Chardonnay that is both fruity and elegant.

Special notes

The Wildcard line offers the perfect balance of value for money. The people in the area call him the "Baron of Barossa-Valley."" And for the wine magazine ""Decanter"", he is nothing less than the ""living legend of Australian wine"" He's Peter Lehmann, son of a Lutheran pastor. His family settled in this region on Australia five generations ago. However, he was the first to enter the wine trade. The company continues to grow under his iron rule. Up to 15,000 tons of grapes are processed per year, largely from independent growers. Lehmann himself meanwhile, has no more than 55 hectares of vines, including the Stonewell vineyard with 18 hectares purchased in 1994. The estate now belongs to Hess Group AG. (The Hess Collection Winery, USA / Glen Carlou Vineyards, South Africa / Bodega Colome, Argentina and Peter Lehmann Wines in Australia).

    Die in der Degustationsnotiz gepriesene Qualität besitzt dieser Wein nicht, weil zu dünn und zu wenig Charakter. Im Barosso Valley schmeckt er eindeutig besser.

    Dieser Weisswein war für mich ungeniessbar. Abschreckend wirken die Zwiebel und Essignoten.
