Peter Lehmann Botrytis Semillion 2002 Wine Review (NW)

Nice nose of apricot, orange, and lemon
Very smooth and rich on the palate
Honey cream finish

After numerous courses and three different wines, we settled in for dessert at Easter dinner. Out came the lemon tart made from scratch and this half bottle of dessert wine. It was an awesome pairing and a perfect finish to the meal.

For dessert wines, there is surprising variety on the market. I have found that wines made from Botrytis Semillion are usually very good. This wine from Australia is rich, smooth, and versatile. It's commonly found in a 375mL bottle and runs approximately $15. For a great finish to a meal, check it out. And raise a glass!
