Tasting Note: This Semillon Blanc has an attractive green/gold hue with fresh citrus notes and a touch of wild honey. The palate is refreshingly soft with a clean, fruit driven finish.

Producer Details: A fifth generation Barossan, Peter Lehmann was born at Angaston in 1930, the son of a Lutheran pastor. His winemaking career began in 1947 as a 17 year-old with Yalumba where he worked under the mentorship and tutelage of the great Rudi Kronberger for 13 years until he was appointed Winemaker/Manager of Saltram Wines in Angaston. In that role for 20 years he built a national reputation for his high-quality, innovative Barossa Wines. He founded his own winery in 1979 in order to support the Barossa growers who were facing financial ruin in the face of a serious overproduction of grapes - he named his new venture Masterson after the Damon Runyon character Sky Masterson, acknowledging what a gamble he had taken. Peter Lehmann Wines soon became a producer of premium bottled wines with a well-deserved international reputation. However, the imminent withdrawal of the principle shareholder in 1993 threatened the company's survival and Lehmann was again forced to gamble - this time by offering equity in the company by public float. The growers with whom he had forged such lasting relationships and his loyal staff invested in the new enterprise together with thousands of small investors and the float succeeded almost overnight.

In The Vineyard: After a short burst of heat in late January and early February the weather settled down and was warm and stable throughout the remainder of February and March producing delicate white wines of exceptional quality. A diversity of established Semillon vineyards located throughout the Barossa with just a touch of Sauvignon Blanc to add some fruit lift.

In The Winery: The fruit was picked early, crushed, chilled and the juice immediately separated from the skins to enhance delicacy. Following cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks and a couple of months on yeast lees, the wine was clarified and bottled.
