Geoff Weaver Ferus Sauvignon Blanc 2014
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. Explore flavour subtleties and complexities through the winemaking process based on the firm foundation of ripe, richly flavoured grapes. 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.
Wild yeast-fermented in French barriques and aged on lees for 12 months. It offers a rare combination of elegance and complexity, the latter achieved without any funky/reductive characters, the former with a combination of citrus, white flower and tropical flavours. Still cruising. Rating: 97 Points; Drink by: 2017; Price: $40.00; Date Tasted: Sept 2015; Alcohol: 12%; Top 100 Wines of 2015 - James Halliday; Weekend Australian
