Peter Lehmann Botrytis Semillon is a sweet wine of amazing freshness,
wonderful flavor and tantalizing complexity.
Post vintage weather in the latter part of May gave ideal conditions for
the natural development of botrytis on the late-hanging Semillon
grapes. Traditionally, botrytis affected wines are the most complex
and longest lived of all sweet table wine styles.
This 2005 Peter Lehmann Botrytis Semillon is a great wine and the
winemakers are fully confident that it will give pleasure for many
years to come.
It has been bottled using screw cap as a guarantee of quality.
Color: Delicate pale gold.
Bouquet: Classical aromas of lime marmalade, dried pear
and a hint of apricot kernel.
Palate: Stylishly luscious with delicious weight on the
middle palate. It has superb Semillon fruit
counterbalanced by refreshing racy acidity so it
finishes with a delightful clean complexity.
Cellaring: Delicious to drink now, but with the screw cap
closure can be confidently cellared for 20 plus
Enjoy with: Botrytis Semillon is naturally
thought of as a dessert wine. Serve it with cheese, particularly soft, ripe cheeses
and good blue cheese accompanied by fresh fruit.
