Peter Lehmann Wines: Margaret Semillon
Peter Lehmann winemakers 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.
Sourced in most years from two vineyards planted in the 1920s and 1930s, Margaret is simply the best PLW Semillon of vintage and can be aged for a further 5-10 years if so desired.
