As Peter Lehmann says, "Our style of Barossa Semillon sits
beautifully between the freshness of Riesling and the greater
weight of Chardonnay. It is a very exciting Australian white wine."
The 2005 vintage produced white wines of great delicacy and
wines which exemplify their varietal characters. While wonderful
to sip in its youth, Chief Winemaker, Andrew Wigan,
prophesies a great future in the bottle for the 2005 Peter Lehmann Semillon.
Color: Vibrant pale straw with green tinges.
Bouquet: Clean-cut aromas of lemon flower, hints of
grapefruit and bees wax.
Palate: A very elegant and delicate Semillon with
persistent lemony lanolin characters on the middle
palate. It is tightly structured in its youthful
zestiness and finishes with clean, crisp, yet soft
acidity. The wine is unoaked and totally fruit-driven.
Lightly chilled, Semillon is a delicious aperitif, and is a perfect
partner for seafood and chicken, as well as caesar salad.
