About The Wine

Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc in Margaret River is a bit like Kylie and Jason, inseparable...

But seriously, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc have stood the test of time in Margaret River to form one of Australia's iconic blends. And for good reason, the Sauvignon blanc adds aromatics and lift, the Sem brings body and they both arrive with lip-smacking acidity.

This example from Lenton Brae is a wine to get you salivating, it's fresh and vibrant and delivers exceptional value.

About Lenton Brae

Ed Tomlinson, son of founders Bruce and Jeanette, is twenty-seven vintages in, and his depth and knowledge of the varieties and the region is evident the precise, beautiful wines released each year.

Additional Info

From The Producer

With this release, Lenton Brae celebrates 33 consecutive vintages of Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and can justifiably claim to be one of Margaret River’s leading exponents of this popular wine style. Lively passion fruit and lemon zest. The palate is clean and lingering.

As with previous releases, the majority was fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and vitality and at cool temperatures facilitating a gradual conversion of sugar into alcohol by selected yeasts. This years blend is 55% Semillon 45% Sauvignon Blanc. We believe that our 2019 release is one of the best in the last 20 years.

The fruit for this wine was sourced primarily from the 35 year old Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc vines on the estate vineyard in Wilyabrup and supplemented with purchased fruit.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Stainless-steel fermented with aromatic yeasts, semillon from Wilyabrup, sauvignon blanc from Karridale. Highly expressive bouquet, with an abundance of the herbaceous and tropical/citrus/stone fruit aromas these varieties can produce in this region. It's lively and juicy in the mouth, with attractive semillon flavours providing the main thrust on the palate." - (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Fresh as can be. Lovely, distinct bouquet showing passionfruit, stone fruit, pea and grassiness. Bright and cool to taste, good length, strong sense of freshness, zing of acidity, some nice chalkiness in the textural mix. Classic stuff, done very well, flavoursome and refreshing. Ticks all the boxes." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
