LENTON BRAE LADY DOUGLAS CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2016

LENTON BRAE LADY DOUGLAS CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2016

27.27

Matured in new and one year old French barriques for 14 months, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from exclusively Wilyabrup fruit.  It's named after the ship on which the first members of the Tomlinson family arrived in Australia in 1884.

Medium bodied and supple, it's a package of dark berries, cocoa, violet and a lick of eucalypt and sandalwood.  Long with a lovely clean flow, its soft tannins give structure whilst being a lot more forgiving than many an Oz Cab, once again so easy to drink.

Lenton Brae

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
