Gobsmackingly good Semillon is almost an endangered species, but here at Swig we have braved the safari to find you this rare goody. Not only has it captured the hearts of all of the Swigees in the office, but it also has an impeccable pedigree, from the vines that are over 125 years old to the winemaking royalty that produces it.
David Franz is the incredibly talented son of Peter Lehmann, Aussie wine God and all round over-achiever. David is a master winemaker in his own right and one of the rising stars of the Aussie wine scene, however one of the perks of having a father who is a legend in the industry is that he gets access to the phenomenal Lehmann vineyards. What that means for us, is top quality juice at up-and-coming prices!          
We were lucky enough to get our sticky mitts on a tiny amount of the 2014 last year, after falling in love with it at a tasting, and so when we were offered a taste of the 2015 we leapt at the chance. In our humble opinion, this is the best vintage yet and one of the best Semillon's we have had the pleasure to tingle our taste buds with. It is really showing off the complexity and magic that those ancient vines bring. Drinking brilliantly now, it has all of the qualities to age incredibly well, so buy some to drink now and a little to lay down to bring delight in years to come!
