        Winemaker Notes

        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 years.

        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.

        Barossa Valley

        View all wine

        Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe.

        The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes.

        Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as 1860. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, purple juice.

        Apart from the classics, we find many regional gems of different styles.

        Late harvest wines are probably the easiest to understand. Grapes are picked so late that the sugars build up and residual sugar remains after the fermentation process. Ice wine, a style founded in Germany and there referred to as eiswein, is an extreme late harvest wine, produced from grapes frozen on the vine, and pressed while still frozen, resulting in a higher concentration of sugar. It is becoming a specialty of Canada as well, where it takes on the English name of ice wine.

        Vin Santo, literally “holy wine,” is a Tuscan sweet wine made from drying the local white grapes Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia in the winery and not pressing until somewhere between November and March.

        Rutherglen is an historic wine region in northeast Victoria, Australia, famous for its fortified Topaque and Muscat with complex tawny characteristics.
