The Ravenswood Lane wines are made exclusively for us at the state-of-the-art The Lane Vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Small parcels of fruit are hand selected to produce wines with impeccable provenance; each wine is a delicious combination of site, personality and experience that brings the vibrancy of the vineyard into every glass. Vineyard Manager Marty Edwards works closely with esteemed winemaker Michael Schreurs (former head winemaker at Henschke) following a philosophy of minimal intervention, respect for organic principles and capturing the essence of each site and variety. They have achieved this and more, in these inspirational wines.
The Semillon was planted in 1998 in a south facing vineyard situated at 440 metres altitude just outside Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills. The vines are trained on a single cordon, with VSP spur pruning. The Sauvignon Blanc vines were also planted in 1998, at an altitude of 450 metres, on a very steep south facing slope and are also trained on a single cordon, VSP, but with cane pruning. The soils have an ancient lithosol topsoil, which is a broken down limestone, over a red podzolic clay. The vineyards are managed following la lutte raisonnée principles: sustainably farmed without the use of systemic checmicals. Great care is taken to protect and preserve the unique microclimate and environment in which the vines are grown.
The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes were hand-selected in the vineyard and harvested separately. The grapes were pressed into stainless steel tanks, followed by a cold settling and the must was racked prior to fermentation. The Sauvignon Blanc was fermented at cool temperatures of between 14 to 18°C in stainless steel tanks. The Semillon was fermented in French oak puncheons. Post fermentation, sulphur was added and the wine was carefully blended in stainless steel maturation vessels, to preserve the purity of fruit. The wine was stabilised, gently filtered and bottled early to retain its refreshing style.
Lively aromas of blackcurrant leaf, lemon thyme and creamy oak complexity lead to a crisp, vibrant and refreshing palate. Notes of lime and lemongrass are supported by an exquisitely fine acidity and a creamy, textured finish.
Stunning with a goats cheese salad or Thai fish cakes.
