DESCRIPTION
  • Geoff Weaver Wines is a family-owned wine business, established in 1982, and run by the former Hardys chief winemaker, Geoff Weaver. One simple thought drives their winemaking: grow grapes of excellence in a site carefully chosen to suit the variety. The Lenswood region in general, and their site in particular, is beautifully suited to make wines of power and finesse with its cool, even temperature spectrum which allows full flavour development combined with high retained acid levels crucial to the making of fine savoury table wines.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Crop levels of 2.5kg/vine were close to our long term average. It was another early ripening year with full flavour development. Hand picking occurred in cool weather on the 1st to the 3rd of March. A mild February was crucial to flavour development and acid retention. Our vines are now 28 years old and show the benefits of maturity with good balance of crop and leaf, plus more stable crops. The growing season was dry with 132mm of rain Oct to March below our long term average of 229 mm. Disease pressure was consequently low and ripe healthy grapes harvested.

    TASTING NOTES

    Lifted aroma of pear, cut grass and hints of flowers. Fresh, fragrant and complex. Nothing heavy or vegetal. The palate brings fresh fruit with a lively, juicy richness and a lingering, fresh acid edge to the finish. Full, long and delicate.

  • REVIEWS

    'Spot on for those seeking Sauvignon Blanc 101, or perhaps even the next level in the scheme of things. Fragrant with passionfruit, lychee, faint grassy notes. Tastes refreshing, a nice bite to acidity, good lean fruit flavour, lingers with a little talc-like mineral charm. Delicate, pure feeling, refreshing. It’s not reinventing the wheel, but it is doing a good job of elevating the offering. Drink with gusto.
