From the bottle:
"LAYERS is crafted to illustrate our belief that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Don't be fooled by its easy drinking and approachable nature, each taste reveals another layer of subtle complexity and flavour enjoyment. Richly perfumed tropical aromas, supported by layers of lemon, peach, dried apricot and green melon on the palate, with balanced acidity and structure that provides a long, smooth finish. This un-oaked wine is ideally suited to modern cuisine. Enjoy.This wine reminds me of a crème brûlée, not just because it has some of the same flavors, but much like the dessert it has layers of flavor. What at first looks simple reveals more and more as you partake. That's not to say this is an overly complex wine, but it does have some depth for those willing to contemplate it.
The 2009 Peter Lehmann Layers Adelaide White exhibits aromas of citrus, pear, and a little spice. The taste is similar with a little lemon zest coming through. It has a good balance of flavors with a bit of cream. Much like the Layers Red, it starts simple but actually has good complexity and a nice finish. An intriguing wine that I recommend you try out!
