Founded in 1998, Hewitson is recognised for its world-class wine from the historic, dry-grown vineyards in the Adelaide Super Zone, encompassing Barossa Valley, Eden Valley, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. Each unique wine created by Dean Hewitson is crafted to reflect true varietal character and regional purity.

The Hewitson LuLu Sauvignon Blanc vineyard is situated between Hahndorf and Mount Barker amongst the highest and coolest slopes within the Adelaide Hills. Proudly single vineyard, LuLu articulates the perfect expression of this variety in what is now generally regarded as premier Sauvignon Blanc region within Australia. 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, this 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.
