Pale straw in colour with green-gold hues. Intense and lifted rose petal aromas with a hint of musk stick and lavender, complemented by white nectarine and lychee. Rich and focussed with a textural mid-palate of tropical fruit and white peach flavours, balanced by lime juice acidity for a long, fine, clean finish.
Very attractive talc and fresh peaches, as well as limes and lychees. The palate has a soft, pear core and elegance at the finish.
After a typical wet and cold winter, spring brought particularly mild and unstable weather to Lenswood with fogs, rain and numerous hail events, fortunately with no resulting damage. These cold hail blasts delayed flowering, and due to an early Harvest Moon, the growing season became quite compressed, requiring more work in the vineyard with shoot thinning and foliage lifting. A long, dry mild spell from Christmas to Easter provided ideal ripening conditions; allowing tannins to mature, acids to moderate and depth of flavour to develop. Fruit quality across the board was outstanding, the whites in particular for their purity and balance, which really defined the season after some challenging early conditions. 2018 was a fantastic year for Lenswood, with high natural acidities and excellent varietal character.

"Light straw hue and a discreet but familiar gewürz varietal aroma, tinged with lychee. The wine is intense and light-bodied, fresh and lively, without strong gewürz richness or grip or viscosity. Fine balance and drinkability."
