Some wonderful recent reviews. It is really pleasing to have the highest rating Sauvingnon blanc in the nation in Hallidays Wine 09 Wine Companion.
James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2009
Geoff Weaver Lenswood Ferus Sauvignon Blanc 2005
A wine that breaks all the rules; barrel-fermented in French oak, 12 months on lees, and has postively flourished in the bottle over 18 months post bottling. Screwcap. 13% alc

Geoff Weaver Lenswood Sauvignon Blanc 2007
The usual Weaver style; spotlessly clean, with nuances of gooseberry, apple, citrus and grass in a minerally web. screwcap 13.5% alc
Pruning is almost done, good rains in the vineyard and the weather is cold. All this adds up to a positive start to the new year. Cold weather means later budburst and hopefully later ripening so we may avoid the heat. Good rain now means our vines should have sufficient water for their needs over the growing season.
