Hewitson Lu Lu Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Proudly single vineyard. Altitude 525m & superbly situated on one of the highest and coolest slopes in the Adelaide Hills. LuLu articulates the perfect expression of this well known variety in what is now generally regarded as the leading Sauvignon Blanc Region.
The colour is bright green with pale straw & the aroma is of melon, pear and citrus with hints of tropical and blackcurrant leaf. Fresh grass and tropical fruit with clean, natural acidity on the palate.

Vintage 2018/19 - The decision to cool ferment the wine in tank (with a specific yeast) has been handsomely repaid with the purity and intensity of the varietal character; kiwi fruit, lychee, passionfruit, white peach and citrus are all on parade; the crisp natural acidity is sufficient to provide structure and length but doesn't distract.
