Hewitson LuLu Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Hewitson LuLu Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Adelaide Hills, South Australia   |    750ml   |    12.5%
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 superbly 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.

"93 Points. Quartz-white; from a single vineyard that delivers the pure Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc aromas and flavours in spades; kiwi fruit, passionfruit and a dash of citrus have an underlying foundation of crunch acidity. 12.5% alc." - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Magazine, April 2014.

"The 2013 growing season and ripening period was as close to perfection as one could wish. The summer was relatively cool with sporadic rain showers keeping the vines in a naturally healthy state although a small crop. The natural acidity and pH has provided the platform for terrific balance and freshness. No acid has been added at any stage of production. After a cool fermentation, the wine settled and was then cold-filtered before bottling in early May, three months after harvesting. 2013 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.

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.
