Lenton Brae Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Lenton Brae Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Margaret River, Western Australia   |    750ml   |    13.5%
Lenton Brae of Margaret River has firmly established themselves as one of Australia's leading exponents of this popular Semillon Sauvignon Blanc style. The newly released 2013 Lenton Brae Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is the 27th consecutive release by Lenton Brae and no doubt one of their finest.

"95 Points. This is the 27th consecutive vintage of this wine that was a ground-breaker when it started, and, if this is an guide, hasn't lost its mojo. Its clear-cut aromas and flavours have an edge that is instantly appealing, and quite distinctiv, quite apart from anything else, it should tell you why this wine can develop very well in bottle over a number of years. Here the Meyer lemon flavours tie up with grapefruit zest and kiwi fruit, with a subliminal hint of wild honey on the long finish. Exceptional value. 13% alc. Drink: 2017" - James Halliday, Wine Companion Magazine, August 2014.

"With this release, Lenton Brae celebrates 27 vintages of Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and can justifiably claim to be one of Margaret Rivers leading exponents of this popular wine style. This years blend is 55% Semillon and 45% Sauvignon Blanc with the Sauvignon Blanc contributing aromatic elements and the Semillon providing the weight and depth of flavour on the palate. Bottled September 2013"- Lenton Brae Wines.

Lenton Brae was established in 1982 by Perth town planner and architect, Bruce Tomlinson. Lenton Brae's philosophy is to produce a limited range of wines, for which the Margaret River region is renowned, and for these wines to be amongst the best of their type. To this end, four wine styles are produced; Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Trophies awarded across the range at regional, state and national levels can attest to the dedication of the Tomlinson family in their endeavours.

The 2013 vintage was warm and dry providing perfect conditions for the early-ripening varieties of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.

As with previous releases, the majority was fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and vitality and at cool temperatures facilitating a gradual conversion of sugar into alcohol by selected yeasts. 8% was barrel fermented in new French oak. This years blend is 55% Semillon 45% Sauvignon Blanc.

The Sauvignon Blanc contributes aromatic elements with the Semillon providing the weight and depth of flavour on the palate.

We encourage consumption within the first 2 years of vintage, though under appropriate cellaring conditions, the wine will soften and develop the honeyed, toasty characters of bottle age. Bottled in June, 2013.

Since 1996, the Lenton Brae Margaret River Semillon Sauvignon has been awarded 7 trophies and 11 gold medals at regional, state and national competitions.
