Fifth-generation winemakers Stephen and Prue Henschke established their Lenswood vineyard 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 yellow-green in colour.
Delicate, fragrant aromas of floral citrus blossom, lemon sherbet, white currant and white peach with a hint of lime zest and green apple notes.
The palate shows layers of zesty lime and lemon intensity supported by slately notes and a tight mineral backbone, with very pure, crisp acidity and a long, fine, dry finish.
