Barossa Valley

'It just hits the right flavour notes from lemon zest and lemongrass to a hint of creamed honey and stone fruit'

  • Margaret Lehmann is the great woman beside the great man: wife, business partner, and champion of Peter Lehmann Wines and the Barossa Valley.

    Together, founder Peter Lehmann and Chief Winemaker, Andrew Wigan, rewrote the rulebooks of Barossa Semillon in the early 90s, eschewing oak and opting for an early-picked style that lent itself to ageing. The result is Margaret Semillon. Released after five years cellaring, it has youthful lemongrass aromas and citrus acidity that belie its age; and complexity you would expect from an aged white with a bountiful trophy cabinet. Safely sealed under screwcap, it will continue to develop for many years to come. Traditionally released as a five year old wine.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The grapes have been picked early to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish. Margaret is our best Semillon of vintage and can be aged for a further 5-10 years if so desired, during which time it will become more golden in colour and richer and more complex in flavour.

    Vineyards - A 1923 planting owned by the Fiebiger Family at Vine Vale and a 1936 planting owned by the Scholz family at Light Pass sub-region of the Barossa and two small blocks owned by the Mader family at Light Pass which were established in 1925 and 1965 respectively.

    TASTING NOTES

    The colour is pale gold with a green tinge giving the impression that the wine is younger than it is. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon.

  • REVIEWS

    'It just hits the right flavour notes from lemon zest and lemongrass to a hint of creamed honey and stone fruit. Just a bit of spice and the long flow of flavours and acidity across the palate make this top notch.'
