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 straw with green hues.
Intense, fragrant aromas of citrus blossom, white currants, gooseberry and green peas punctuated by notes of tropical fruits, fejoa and green herbs.
The palate is full of sweet, tropical fruit and gooseberry flavours with fleshy texture, pure minerality and clean acidity for a crisp and long, rich finish.
Exceptional vintage, 5+ years (from vintage).
