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.
