What the Experts Say

Pinot Blanc for Lenton Brae escaped quarantine in 2011. Raised in old wood, hand-picked, wild ferment etc.

Saline and nutty, almost a sake-like thing happening here, green pear and honey. It has some honey gloss, but feels nice and tight with flinty highlights to texture, a lemon juice in water sort of acidity, green herbs and watermelon rind, and plenty of oomph on the finish. A bit like Chardonnay, only different. It’s excellent.

93/100 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

 

Our Notes

Pinot Blanc, the pale German cousin of Pinot Noir, presents here like a plump Margaret River Chardonnay from a mirror universe. Yoghurt and honey rather than cream, cherry rather than peach, still rich and full-bodied. Deeply savoury, with just about anything you could buy at Scarborough Fair featured here.  Wholesome and a little different, basically - Froyo, not ice-cream.

 

Winemakers Comments

The first members of the Tomlinson family arrived in Western Australia aboard the Lady Douglas on the 9th of July 1884. This wine recognises their voyage to a new life and celebrates my family's endeavours since. Edward Tomlinson – Winemaker

Tasting Notes: Medium to full bodied with a smooth, supple texture and flavour profile of blackberries and dark cherries. This release will continue to build and integrate over the medium/ long term.

Winemaking: Hand-picked and hand sorted this wine comprises 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. Matured in French oak barriques (30% new) for 16 months. 

Vineyard Selection: The fruit is sourced exclusively from Lenton Brae’s vineyard located in the heart of Wilyabrup.

 

About the Winery

Lenton Brae’s operation, with its distinctive church-inspired winery, is run by Edward Tomlinson, the son of founders Bruce and Jeanette.

One of Margaret River’s most highly-respected producers, the name nods to the Nottingham district of Lenton, from which the Tomlinson family emigrated in the 19th century, and to the small hill (Scots: “brae”) on the winery’s grounds.
