South Australia's Adelaide Hills is home to Australia's best Sauvignon Blanc, and this single vineyard offering from Hewitson has firmly established itself in the top echelon. Displaying great length, the 2015 Hewitson Lulu Sauvignon Blanc is packed with zesty lemon and lime flavours along with plenty of delicate tropical fruits.

Fresh, vibrant and perfectly balanced with the just right amount of acidity, the 2015 Hewitson LuLu Sauvignon Blanc once again highlights why Hewitson are considered one of Australia's leading Sauvignon Blanc makers.

"95 Points. The decision to cool ferment the wine in tank (with a specific yeast) has been handsomely repaid with the purity and intensity of the varietal character; kiwi fruit, lychee, passionfruit, white peach and citrus are all on parade; the crisp natural acidity is sufficient to provide structure and length but doesn't distract.

Hewitson was founded in 1998 by winemaker Dean Hewitson's driving passion to produce uniquely expressive wines from the great vineyards of South Australia's famous wine regions. These regions are the Barossa Valley, Eden Valley, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills. They are home to some of Australia's, and indeed the world's, oldest and most treasured vineyards, many of them planted pre-phylloxera and more closely linked to the original vines of Europe than anywhere else in the world.

2014 yielded fabulous conditions to perfectly ripen this single vineyard. A large rainfall early in the season gave much needed moisture to the subsoil and from this point on the ripening was slow and even. After a cool fermentation, the wine settled and was then cold-filtered before bottling in early May, three months after harvesting. 2014 LuLu Sauvignon Blanc showcases the vibrancy of this variety with our single vineyard expression and racy acidity. This wine illustrates our belief that great wine is expression of single vineyard and vintage.- Hewitson Wines.
