This sauvignon blanc is a tribute to the historic Coralinga homestead and apple orchard that was destroyed by bushfires in the early 1900s. The homestead was situated close by Henschke’s Lenswood property in the heart of the South Mount Lofty Ranges. At 550m, Lenswood has 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 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 region.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale yellow-green in colour.
Sweet, delicate floral aromas of passionfruit, gooseberry and tropical fruits are punctuated by notes of fejoa and white currant.
The palate is rich and minerally with intense flavours of citrus, gooseberry and tropical fruits, and just a hint of anise and caraway; the finish is clean, crisp and lingering.
