Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills South Australia
Grown to the the Henschke Archer's Vineyard at Lenswood in Adelaide Hills, near the heart of the South Mount Lofty Ranges. A refreshing passionfruit, citrus and gooseberry nuanced wine with flinty mineral aromas following up, Coralinga is a highly regional expression of Sauvignon Blanc, delivering ample varietal complexity and true elegance.
This scrumptuous wine is a tribute to the nearby historic Lenswood Coralinga homestead and surrounding apple orchards. The vineyard has a steep north to east facing slope, and the vines here grow vigorously, flowering generously and in general setting healthy crops. At 550 metres, Lenswood enjoys higher rainfall and humidity at the right time of year, cooler temperatures to retain high natural acidity and still enough sunshine to fully ripen grapes. Fermented in tank and bottled post vintage, unaged and unoaked to preserve the wine's superior fruit characters. Lenswood Coralinga captures the exotic aromatic qualities of Sauvignon Blanc grown to an exceptional Adelaide Hills site.
Pale yellow green hue. Sweet, delicate floral aromas of passionfruit, gooseberry and tropical fruits are punctuated by notes of fejoa and white currant. The palate is rich and minerally with intense flavours of citrus, gooseberry and tropical fruits, and just a hint of anise and caraway, the finish is clean, crisp and lingering.
