The Pike & Joyce owned and operated Lenswood Vineyard in Adelaide Hills produces wines of outstanding quality and distinctive character. One of the highest in the region at approximately 500 to 550 metres above sea level, the site contributes excellent natural acidity to the wines. Planted in the late 1990s, Lenswood represents a true cool climate vineyard, the steep sloping terrain reduces the risk of frost. Soils are gravelly, clay loams that drain extremely well. Grapes are hand harvested, lightly crushed and destemmed. Pure yeast cultures are added for delicacy. The winemaking team are quite happy to watch over the ferments during their formative stage and intervene only as necessary.
Brilliant, pale green / straw hue. Clean, fresh aromas of passionfruit, snowpea and a little citrus, backed up by notes of nettles and mineral. Quite complex. Fresh and zingy acidity on the palate keeps the wine bright and balanced finishing with a vibrant tropical /nettle flourish. Quite richly flavoured, but still has style, poise and a pleasantly dry, textural finish.
