Peter Lehmann Masters Botrytis Semillon 2011

£8.99

TASTING NOTE

A beautiful golden colour that will intensify with bottle age. The bouquet is chock full of honey and lime marmalade. Deliciously luscious and counterbalanced by natural acidity, this is a dessert wine with the highest of pedigree.

Peter Lehmann works with over 140 growers across the length and breadth of the Barossa Valley region, with access to over 750 individual vineyard sites. The fruit for this wine was sourced from selected Barossa vineyards including our own Peter Lehmann Semillon vineyard on the banks of the Para River.

Generally considered an incredibly challenging vintage across Australia, the cool damp conditions in 2011 were ideal for this wine, encouraging botrytis to appear at the end of the season in all of the Semillon vineyards. This developed to a high degree, enabling the team to make arguably the best Botrytis Semillon in their history to date.

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