There’s not much of this variety grown in Australia, and yet it makes some very nice, lightly aromatic and fragrant wines. There’s a subtle hint of pear and apple with a citrus tang to boot. Clean long finish with a fine elevating acidity. Read more

Tasting Notes

Genetically similar to Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc is popular in Alsace and in pockets of northern Italy and Germany producing confident medium bodied whites. Minimal intervention is practiced in the winery to highlight the inherent character and flavour profile. Hand picked followed by wild fermentation in older, large format French oak and bottling without filtration are some of the techniques employed. Lenton Brae is the only producer of Pinot Blanc in Margaret River. Our cuttings were released from WA quarantine in 2011 and were propagated in house. The 0.5 hectare site was chosen for its cool, southerly aspect - perfect for this early ripening variety.

Winemakers Note

A family-owned winery, Lenton Brae was established in 1982. Recent renovations have rejuvenated the site, showcasing the splendour of this region. Large bay windows overlook our lake, adorned with ducks and native birds. Outdoor shaded tables are perfect in the summer months and cosy fireplaces in winter. Situated just north of Margaret River, Lenton Brae is nestled into the hills of the premium Wilyabrup region. Here, loamy gravel soils provide excellent constitution and drainage. A stone’s throw (around 3.5kms) from the Indian Ocean, our vines benefit from a mild and consistent Mediterranean climate.
