Margaret Lehmann is the great woman behind the great man: wife, business partner, and champion of Peter Lehmann Wines and the Barossa. Together, founder Peter Lehmann and Chief Winemaker, Andrew Wigan, rewrote the rulebooks 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.

Safely sealed under screwcap, it will continue to develop for many years to come. Traditionally released as a five year old wine.

Expert Reviews

Vivid green-straw; while the jury is out on the '08 Wigan Riesling, there are no qualms about this wine, with its fluid line of lemon, lemongrass and apple; its greatest strength is the structure derived from the perfect acidity. Rating 96 - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2014 Edition

Long, elegant and very restrained, with a toasty, floral bouquet of melon, peach and gentle nutty oak lifted by a whiff of lime juice and revealing a hint of mineral. It’s smooth and creamy, with a juicy, nutty presence of melon/lime flavour tightly knit with sweet, lightly charry vanilla oak and supported by a fine, pliant chalkiness. It builds towards a crescendo of fruit and refreshing acidity. Rating 93 - Jeremy Oliver, Australian Wine Annual 2014

Winery Tasting Notes


The colour is pale gold with a green tinge giving the impression that the wine is younger than it is.


The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon.


The grapes have been picked early to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.


Margaret is our best Semillon of vintage and can be aged for a further 5-10 years if so desired, during which time it will become more golden in colour and richer and more complex in flavour.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In the face of a serious overproduction of grapes and the real possibility of growers facing financial ruin, Peter Lehmann found some investment partners, established a consortium and built the Peter Lehmann Wines winery. It was 1979.The first vintage was processed in 1980 and in 1982 the winery was formally named Peter Lehmann Wines. From then on, its wines have been marketed under the Peter Lehmann Wines label.

As an experienced winemaker, Peter Lehmann was all too aware of the challenges facing a young winery in a competitive market. Growth was well planned, slow and steady.

Initially, the winery facility was built to process fruit purchased from the local growers. Carefully and strategically, the Peter Lehmann Wines operation moved on from the bulk wine market to become a producer of premium bottled wines with a well-deserved international reputation.

As well as purchasing grapes from about 185 local independent growers, Peter Lehmann Wines has its own vineyards, which produce about 2% of its requirements.The famous Barossa wine region is a little over an hour by car north of Adelaide, South Australia’s capital. The Barossa comprises two regions, the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, and these regions encompass a myriad of sub-districts.

The care and consideration which Peter Lehmann Wines brings to the selection of grapes enable the winery to produce a wide range of distinctive, award-winning and internationally acclaimed wines.

Our wines are created from grapes purchased from about 165 carefully selected independent growers as well as grapes grown in the four company-owned vineyards. Many of our growers’ families have worked the same vineyards for five and, in some cases, six generations. These Barossa vignerons tend to around 900 individual vineyards that run the gamut of the Barossa, through Lyndoch, Vine Vale, Light Pass, Stonewell, Greenock, Ebenezer and the Eden Valley.
