Geoff Weaver Sauvignon Blanc Lenswood 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Aroma: Fragrant and subtle. Mineral notes as well as florals and esters. Some creamy, lanolin notes. Elusive, rich yet understated Much less aromatically fruity than the conventional Sauvignon Blanc. Color: Pale straw with a light green tinge. Palate: Gently flavoured with the characters apparent on the nose carrying through to the palate. Ripe fruit with a rich middle palate and a lingering mineral finish with a lively acidity. Food Suggestion: Seafoods; try Barramundi or Moreton Bay bugs.

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
