Pale gold with lime green hues. Delicate and fragrant aromas of citrus blossom, clover, jasmine, lemon pith and gooseberry give way to richer and more aromatic notes of white stone-fruit, honeydew melon and finger lime, with a hint of clove spice and brioche. Concentrated flavours of citrus and tropical fruit sweep across the mid-palate, providing layers and depth, complemented by zesty acidity for freshness and length.
An easy drinking style with a core of summer fruits, spice and zesty acidity.
Adelaide Hills - 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. 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.
Eden Valley - A moderately wet winter combined with average spring conditions meant that vines grew well in the mild weather. Ideal flowering conditions in late spring/early summer lead to the potential for near-average yields. March and April provided the light and warmth to the Eden Valley which lead to full and balanced maturity being achieved across all grape varieties. With warm sunny days and cool nights, the dry autumn guaranteed that pristinely-healthy grapes arrived in the fermenters.
