Description

Sass the Tailor is a tribute to Henry William Sass, a tailor of Lobethal in the early 1900s, who owned the property on Croft Road in the Adelaide Hills that became our Lenswood Archer’s Vineyard in 2009. Sass subsequently sold the property to Frederick Croft, after whom the road along Croft Ridge is named. First-generation Henschke winemaker, Johann Christian and his sons helped establish the town of Lobethal following their 90-day voyage from Kutschlau, Silesia in 1841. In 1847 Johann Christian moved his family to Krondorf in the Barossa Valley, finally settling in the Eden Valley, where they have since celebrated over 150 years of family winemaking.

Review

Attractive pear, white peach aromas with flinty mineral notes. A classic dry white style with ample pear, granny smith apple, white peach fruits, fine lacy textures, very good volume and fresh linear acidity. An early drinking style with a wonderful varietal salad of flavours and textures.

Fragrant aromas of white flowers, citrus, pear and lemon rind, with hints of ginger root, rose petals, white nectarine and cinnamon.
Palate
A juicy and textural palate of white peach leads into dried lemon thyme and green peppercorn, complemented by crisp acidity for a long and fresh finish.
