Peter Lehmann Botrytis Semillon 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Semillon Barossa Valley South Australia
Peter Lehmann's story with Noble Semilon goes back many years, when Andrew Wigan had the good fortune of experiencing vintage within the vineyards at Chateau d'Yquem, home to the greatest sweet white wine in the world. What he had assumed to be spoilage, was in fact Botrytis Cinerea. Traditionally, Botrytis affected wines are the most complex and longest lived of all. The Barossa Valley is an ideal region for late harvest, given the quality of local Semillon and the warm conditions that continue well into vintage.

Walking through the vineyards of Chateau d'Yquem, Andrew Wigan could see fruit in the same condition as what he'd experienced back home. Armed with the confidence that Botrytis Cinerea in the Barossa was identical to Sauternes, Wigan returned fully determined to create Peter Lehmann's own expression of Botrytis Semillon. Made exclusively from grapes picked at the Peter Lehmann Semillon vineyard, along the banks of the River Para, when infection of the Semillon is perfect. The grapes are crushed and left on skins overnight before being pressed the next day. Juices are clarified and treated to a mix of fermenters or French oak hogsheads for six months before bottling.
Brightly polished gold hues. Classical aromas of lime marmalade, dried pear and a hint of apricot kernel. Stylish, more-ish and luscious, delicious with dried currant and apricot flavours, complemented by fully integrated French oak, pierced by superb natural acids. A wine of remarkable intensity and superb weight, multi dimensional fruit, everywhere on the middle palate, beckoning for another sip.
