SSB is a regional flagbearer of Margaret River. This is Lenton Brae’s 33rd consecutive vintage of this wine. From 30+ year old vines, this year’s edition comprises 52% Semillon and 48% Sauvignon Blanc, and it is raised without oak to maximise freshness.
A lively and tangy wine, it’s loaded with passionfruit, lemon zest and green melon fruit flavours, broadening further with fennel and flint. Textbook Margaret River SSB, but given it wrote the book, so it should be.
Lenton Brae / Margaret River, Wa
Pioneers Of The Margaret River Region
A pioneering producer of Margaret River, Lenton Brae was established in 1982 by Bruce and Jeanette Tomlinson, with winemaking today handled by son Edward. A claim to fame is them being the first producer to popularise the Bordelaise white blend of Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, now a flagbearer for the region. A producer in great winemaking stride, the freshness, prettiness and approachability across the board is striking, and the release of Pinot Blanc shows the continued evolution and relevance here. A first rate producer from one of Australia’s most enigmatic wine regions.
“It’s hard to deny that Lenton Brae is a very high quality producer… firmly in the upper echelon of Margaret River blue chip producers.” Mike Bennie, Winefront
