Not content with just being 'champion of the Barossa', Peter (or perhaps Margaret) Lehmann should now also be known as the 'champion of Barossa semillon'. With greater belief and enthusiasm for the style than anyone else, the current team at Peter Lehmann has raised the awareness of quality Barossa semillon to a new level.

A superb little entry point semillon, Peter Lehmann's 2008 displays an airy fragrance of spicy citrus, melon, nuts and gentle honeysuckle. It's more generous than recent vintages in both mouthfeel and character, as its smooth, round palate presents clean yet slightly pungent melon and citrus flavours with a drier, more savoury finish marked by soft acids and a note of tobacco.

üAnother success story for Peter Lehmann's project semillon. The 2008 is the most interesting wine I've had under this label for years. Drink to 2014.
