Geoff Weaver Riesling Lenswood 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Fragrant orange blossom fruit. Straw color with a light green tinge. Fresh lime flavors with a flinty, mineral finish.Delicate and lingering. Vintage 2005 was excellent with a mild summer followed by a warm and dry autumn. Grape flavours were intense. Crop level was a little above average (3.5 kg per vine) . Our Riesling was picked on the 6th of April.The grapes were naturally high in acid and no acid was added. It is many years since we have needed to add acid to balance the flavours and reflects the maturity of the vineyard and the quality of our site.

Geoff Weaver wines is a family-owned wine business based on our own vineyard which we established in 1982. In the early 1980s 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. Read less
