Named after Peter Lehmann's wife Margaret, an avid Semillon fan, this unique Australian white wine is made from grapes picked from very old vines and the wine is only released for sale after five years of bottle aging, with no oak contact. The result is richly structured, with layers of tropical fruit, lemons and dried stone fruit. The finish is smooth and super-long. Enjoy it now or keep even longer in the bottle (if you can resist).

Five years in bottle before this ripe Australian beauty sees the light of day - and it's worth the wait. A truly stunning Semillon from the company of renowned winemaker Peter Lehman.

The Producer

Born in the Barossa Valley, Peter Lehmann (1930-2013) began a lifetime of winemaking at the age of just 17 when he joined the Yalumba team. He decided to establish his own winery in 1979, as a way of helping the local growers to sell their grapes, a helping hand which meant they went on to become one of Australia's greatest wine brands. The winery now sources fruit from 140 local growers, who are integral to the success of the company. Peter's role in saving the Barossa was rewarded with the award of ‘Personality of the Year’ by the International Wine Challenge in 2009, not to mention a member of the Order of Australia.

The Winemaker

The winemaking team at Peter Lehmann is led by Ian Hongell, aided by Tim Dolan. Winemaking at Peter Lehmann since 1998, following vintage experience around the world and stints at some of Australia's other great wineries, Ian took over the reins from chief winemaker Andrew Wigan in 2015. Winemaking was the obvious choice for someone who grew up close to the Peter Lehmann winery, with Ian's father working with Peter at Saltram. Ian gets to see both sides of the coin, with his own small Shiraz vineyard supplying fruit for the winery.

The Region

The Barossa Valley is situated an hour's drive north of Adelaide in Australia and is arguably the country's best known wine region, with over 150 wineries in production. With its Mediterranean climate and rich, dark soils, this is ideal red wine country with many different sub-regions giving a wide variety of styles. Rhone grapes Shiraz (Syrah) and Grenache are particularly suited to the region, producing rich, structured reds with great ageing potential, but its rich ripe white wines are a thing of beauty.

Moules Marinieres

A classic French dish which is surprisingly versatile with many styles of wine - for a slightly different take, try a ripe, citrussy New World white such as Peter Lehmann's Margaret Semillon.

Prawn Croquettes

A great snack or tapas dish, these prawn croquettes just need a drop of fresh, fruity white or rosé to set them off! We'd head to Barossa Valley for starters and pick Peter Lehmann's Margaret Semillon.

Gorgonzola Stuffed Chicken Breast Wrapped in Pancetta

Plump for a ripe, fruity white such as Chardonnay or Semillon to contrast with the salty tang that the pancetta and cheese bring to the dish. Peter Lehmann's Margaret Semillon is a great choice with its depth and layers of flavour.
