The Lenton Brae property is planted to the finest soils in Wilyabrup, which is itself celebrated as one of the the most prestigious sub regions of Margaret River. The prevailing dry conditions during the final period of fruit ripening in early autumn allow for low humidity and disease pressures. The gravelly loams over clay base retains moisture and encourages root penetration, providing perfect conditions for the early ripening varietals of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Parcels are vinified to retain freshness and vitality under cool temperatures, facilitating a gradual conversion of sugar into alcohol by selected yeasts, a portion is barrel fermented in new French oak for added richness and complexity.
