About this company

As a Lenswood local family run winery, we are passionate to share our love towards the region, the land and our organic lifestyle with others. The owners Ben and Clare Anderson take care of the vineyard (which is 600 metres above sea-level, one of the highest vineyards in South Australia!), the winery as well as the beautiful cellar door restaurant. Lenswood vineyard in the northern Adelaide Hills is one of the coolest and highest vineyards in South Australia. The top metre of loamy soil sits on a sub-clay base and sustains efficient water and nutrients to the vines and reduces the risk of pests and diseases at the same time. The north-east facing slop gives the vines the optimal exposure to the sun. 

In this terroir, our grapes ripen slowly over the cool summer days and chilly nights to produce fruits with intense aromas and flavours. We focus on Burgundy varieties - Chardonnay and Pinot Noir as well as Adelaide Hills classic - Sauvignon Blanc and cool climate Shiraz. Our wines are made for consumers who are looking for elegant and well structured wines with nice and delicate fruit characters. If you are willing to explore more possibilities for Australia wines outside from the big and powerful Shirazs, we are here for you.

We hand-prune and hand-pick all our grapes to ensure the premium quality of our grapes and the health of our vines. Ben and our vineyard team work together closely and check the condition of our vines every single day. We pick our grapes when the intensity of the flavors and richness of the tannin achieve the best balance. We believe the flavors are better delivered by the grapes themselves. Once the grapes are picked we respect the natural quality of the grapes and minimise our intervention into the winemaking process.

Our light and bright Sparkling, Sauvignon Blanc and Rosé are whole-bunch pressed and fermented in strictly temperature-controlled tanks which delivers unique vertical characters to the final wines. The mellow Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz are fermented by natural yeast that showcase the terroir. Carbonate maceration, extended maceration, hand-selected French oak barrels and sur lie are carefully used to develop the nice structure and diverse flavours in the finished bottles.
