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.
Description: The Hewitson LuLu Sauvignon Blanc vineyard is superbly situated on one of the highest and coolest slopes in the Adelaide Hills. Proudly single vineyard, LuLu articulates the perfect expression of this variety in what is now generally regarded as the premier Sauvignon Blanc region.
Appearance: Bright green with pale straw.
Nose: Aromatic herbaceous notes balanced seamlessly with hints of cut capsicum, Finnish blackcurrant leaf and freshly squeezed lemon.
Mouth: The palate expresses intense fresh grass and tropical fruit characters, leading into a crisp but lingering finish. The wine shows a precise balance of structural and natural acidity with vibrant varietal flavours, a true expression of the season and vineyard.
