Expert Reviews

A distinctly different style of savvy to those of New Zealand. Its restrained and pure with a keen minerally thread. This was an early vintage in the Adelaide Hills, so the acid is finer and crisp, providing an excellent backbone and lifted thread. Rating 90 - Ray Jordan, West Australian (19/MAY/2011)

You could do worse than open a bottle of this to wash down your Good Friday fish and chips. From Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills its bursting with sweet, aromatic passionfruit and tropical fruit flavours, vibrant acidity, freshly cut grass characters and a crisp, clean finish.Kerry Skinner, Illawarra Mercury(20/APR/2011)

Wine Background

The sauvignon blanc pays tribute to the nearby historic Coralinga homestead and apple orchards destroyed by bushfires in the early 1900s. Lenswood lies in the Adelaide Hills, the heart of the South Mount Lofty Ranges. At 550m, Lenswood has higher rainfall and humidity a the right time of the year, cooler temperatures to retain high natural acidity and still enough sunshine to fully ripen the grapes. The exotic aromatic qualities of the sauvignon blanc reflect the exceptional site of these vineyards and the suitability of this variety to the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills. The vineyards have steep north to east facing slopes.
