95 Points - Tony Love
Geoff Weaver's career in wine is one that dates back to 1972 and he's been responsible for making some of Australia's most famous wines. He's a pioneer of the Adelaide Hills and must have known that one day Sauvignon Blanc from the region would rule supreme.
The 2019 Geoff Weaver Sauvignon Blanc has an appealing nose of tropical fruits and gooseberry before a juicy fruit palate, a rich length and a zingy, zesty acid length. Another benchmark Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc release from Geoff Weaver.
"95 Points. From Geoff Weaver’s immaculate Lenswood sub-region vineyard – which was disastrously burned in a December 2019 bushfire, then bravely revived during 2020. A wine that stands tall to show us how great both the Hills and sauvignon blanc can be in Geoff Weaver's gentlemanly hands. The nose and palate are all about well-mannered varietal pungency, gooseberry and ginger, with fabulous, pithy texture and a reverb of exciting flavours in the finish. Simply terrific. 13% alc, Drink by 2024. Screwcap" - Tony Love, winecompanion.com.au.
In the early 1980's the Adelaide Hills was an untried region for grapes and wine. Our ambition was to plant a vineyard capable of growing flavours that would extend the style and quality frontiers of Australian wine.
This demanded a different way of growing grapes; with low yield from low vigour vines that fully ripened in the cool hills environment. Avoidance of the high or low extremes of temperature in the vineyard and protection from strong wind is fundamentally important.
The site we chose has ancient, low fertility soils and is high on the slopes allowing ample cold air drainage so that the vines are not restricted in their flavour-producing metabolism. In addition the soils have excellent water holding capacity meaning that irrigation is unnecessary and the vines have a steady but restricted water supply to support them.
