Fifth-generation winemaker Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue purchased the property in the Adelaide Hills in 1981. At 550m, the Lenswood vineyards offer not only magnificent views over the traditional vine country but also higher rainfall and humidity at the right time of the year, cooler temperatures to retain high natural acidity, and still enough sunshine to fully ripen the grapes. The riesling vineyard is planted on a perfect west facing slope on loam soil containing shale fragments. It was so named as it overlooks the apple orchards operated by the Green family since 1893.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw with green hues.
Exhibiting enticingly sweet aromas of scented green apples, white currants, stone-fruits and citrus blossom with a hint of slate and lime zest.
The savoury palate is rich and textural with beautiful citrus and stone-fruit flavours, crisp acidity and a long, restrained finish.
Exceptional vintage, 20+ years (from vintage).
