Wine Entry : Peter Lehmann Barossa Valley Botrytis Semillon 2005 (Australia)

-

Wine came presented in a sleek bottle with a screwcap top, I think I purchased this from Cold Storage wine section costing [S$----deleted] should be S$19.80 instead. Under the light, the wine is a clear straw pale yellow colour. Though it is a Botrytis wine, I find it lacking in the strength and authority of other more renowned Noble Botrytis wines.

Smell : Bitter honey lemon, slight sulphur pungency with flora scents.

Taste : Sweet nectarish, orange lemon marmalade style. Flows easily with not too much viscosity.

After-taste : Citrus-lemon with a strong sour pull at the intermediate finish.

Description at back of bottle :
The 2005 Botrytis Semillon has been made predominantly from botrytised grapes grown on the small Peter Lehmann Semillon vineyard by the banks of the Para River in Tanunda. It is a superb wine of great freshness, balance and luscious elegance. With natural fruit sweetness and tantalizing complexity. It is the perfect accompaniment to a creamy blue cheese, peach tart or a warm winter pudding.

    yeah most of the sweet wines are in smaller bottles of 375 ml instead of the normal bottles of 750 ml.

    It's more precious but I prefer them too as it keeps better than the 750 ml which have to be finished in a few sittings.

    You back from your hols?
