Peter Lehmann Masters Botrytis Semillon 2017 (375ml)

$24.00 ea

AVAILABLE

(Only available for purchase in groups of 6)

A beautiful golden colour which will intensify with bottle age. In 2011 there was a high level of botrytis infection in three of our Semillon vineyards and this is reflected in the bouquet which is chock full of honey and lime marmalade characters. The palate is deliciously luscious and is counterbalanced by the natural acidity, making this a dessert wine of the highest pedigree. These wines can be matured for quite a few years during which time they become richer in colour and more complex.

Best matched with the following food groups

The Peter Lehmann Masters Botrytis Semillon was inspired by Chief Winemaker Andrew Wigan’s visit to the iconic Château d’Yquem in 1981, home to one of the world’s greatest sweet wine. His time in their vineyards and winery inspired him to recreate the style in the Barossa.

The cool, damp conditions in 2011 encouraged botrytis to appear at the end of the season in three of our Semillon vineyards and this developed to a high degree, enabling us to make arguably the best botrytis Semillon in our history to date.

The Barossa Valley, with its warm lingering summers, is a natural home for the noble rot, Botrytis Cinera. What can be a grapegrowers curse is masterfully crafted in this luscious wine that shows the beauty and diversity of the Semillon grape.

Grapes handpicked from the Peter Lehmann Semillon vineyard on the banks of the Para River, along with the Becker family vineyard at Ebenezer and the McCarthy vineyard in Bethany.

The grapes were crushed and left on skins overnight before being pressed the next day. The juice was clarified, then cold fermented in stainless steel tanks, prior to bottling.

With creamy blue vein or washed rind cheeses. A delicious accompaniment for fruit flans, warm winter puddings and great with scrambled eggs for a luxurious brunch. Can be cellared for 20 plus years.

The history of this wine dates back to winemaker Andrew Wigan’s visit to the iconic Château d’Yquem in 1981, home to the world’s greatest sweet wine. His time in their vineyards and winery inspired him to recreate the style in the Barossa.

Barossa’s warm lingering summers offer ideal conditions for the “noble rot”, Botrytis Cinera. A small block next to the winery has been isolated specifically for this wine, showing the beauty and diversity of the Semillon grape.
