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.
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.
