Gold Medal - London International Wine Challenge

Peter Lehmann winemaker’s rewrote the rulebooks of Barossa Semillon in the early 90's, 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; delivering a complexity you would expect from an aged white of the highest quality.

"94 Points. Bright green-straw; attractive and complex, with a straw and honey bouquet, the palate following on logically, albeit with a foundation of lemon-accented fruit to those honey notes. Drink by: 2020 Date tasted: 10/Feb/2014 Price: $42.00 Alcohol: 11%" - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.

"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. 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." - Peter Lehmann Wines.
