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
