Lenton Brae Semillon Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
Lenton Brae can justifiably claim to be one of Margaret River's leading proponents of the ebullient fusion between Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, having claimed multi trophies and gold medals for the style at regional, state and national competitions. The site was chosen after a chance conversation with the owner of Moss Wood who mentioned that the soils were uniformly excellent and equal to those of the eminent vineyard nearby. The overriding philosophy at Lenton Brae is to construct wines which rank among the Margaret River's finest.

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.
Light green/ yellow straw hue. Beautifully perfumed wine, fresh grasses, myrtle and lychee fragrances, supported by mineral notes, wet pebble and slate. Sauvignon Blanc contributes aromatic elements while Semillon provides weight and depth of flavour. Lenton Brae will soften and develop the honeyed, toasty characters so desirable of bottle age.
