Geoff Weaver Sauvignon Blanc Lenswood 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The secret with Sauvignon blanc is to grow the vines in a cool region with low crops per vine which ensures fruit intensity, ripeness, concentration of middle palate flavour and a natural fresh acid balance. It is this depth of flavour which distinguishes excellent Sauvignon blanc from the thin, weedy examples of Sauvignon blanc which are so common.

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
