Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2005

Peter Lehman fashion a good semillon here from the Barossa Valley.

An interesting nose, with notes of talc, minerals, citrus and lemon pith, held together with a slight reductive edge.  On the palate, high acid, medium length, lemon pith and a biscuit like character that was distinctive.  Weighing in at only 11.5abv, here is evidence that Barossa Valley does not always produce high alcohol wines.  This fact combined with its high acid profile, suggests that an early picking strategy has been adopted for this wine.  Quite a balanced wine in all.  87 points

Abv: 11.5%
Price: mid $20s
