The Masters wines are named in honour of a person or event that has played an intrinsic role in the Peter Lehmann story, and released with bottle age to capture the wines’ full potential. Named after Peter Lehmann’s beloved wife, the Margaret Semillon is a beautiful aged white that develops over years of careful cellaring.


Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Margaret Lehmann is the great woman beside the great man: wife, business partner, and champion of Peter Lehmann Wines and the Barossa Valley. Peter Lehmann winemakers rewrote the rule books 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.
Production Notes
A traditionally wet winter, mild Spring and excellent fruit set provided a fantastic start to the 2015 vintage. The 2015 harvest was an early vintage following a cool and dry growing season, however a timely rainfall event in January was a much needed saving grace. Mild weather from February to April set up our best Barossa Semillon vineyards to bear the quality of fruit that winemakers can usually only dream about.
Winemaker Notes
Pale straw green. Full of beautiful lifted lemon zest and curd. Lovely lemon sherbet characters along with pure zesty acidity. This is a Margaret that requires significant time (and patience) to reach its full drinking potential.
Production
The grapes were picked early and fermented cold in stainless steel tanks to retain fruit delicacy. Following a two week fermentation period, the wine was clarified and bottled before being cellared at the winery for a minimum of 5 years prior to release.
