One bottle of each of the following wines is included in the six pack, and two bottles of each in the dozen.
Geoff Weaver 2001 Lenswood Cabernet-Merlot – Estate-grown, and spent 24 months in French oak; the decision to keep part of the make for extended bottle age, and thus a museum release, has been fully justified. This is a rare opportunity to buy a fully mature wine direct from the cellar of the maker. All the components of dark berry fruits, oak and tannins have joined seamlessly and harmoniously. There will, I suppose, be some bottle variation, but it is hard to imagine a more perfect bottle than this one. 13.5% alc. Rating 96 points, James Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion
2013 Geoff Weaver Lenswood Pinot Noir – From clones MV6 (90%), 114 and 115 (10%), part crushed, part destemmed, open-fermented on skins for 14 days, matured for 12 months in French barriques (50% new), not filtered. Texture and structure are good. Rating 93 points, James Halliday’s Wine Companion August 2016
2016 Geoff Weaver Lenswood Pinot Noir – 70% MV6, 30% 114 and 115 clones fermented in 0.5 tonne lots with 15% whole bunches and some additional stalks to add structure, matured for 12 months in French barriques (50% new). Cherry accented fruit on the bouquet and palate has a freshness that is a delight, and the additional stalks haven’t made the wine too stemmy, the oak likewise balanced.

2019 Geoff Weaver Lenswood Pinot Noir – 25% whole bunch fermentation, matured for 12 months in French barriques (50% new). Clear colour and bright cherry/plum fruit provide instant appeal. Good line and length, likewise balance. needs a year or two for the rainbow of spices to emerge. Rating 96 points, James Halliday’s Weekend Australian Jan 30th 2021
2013 Geoff Weaver Lenswood Chardonnay – Chilled before whole bunch-pressing, 50 per cent mlf, matured for 12 months in French barriques (50 per cent new, 50 per cent second use). Gleaming yellow-green hue; grapefruit, apple and white peach drive the very expressive and complex palate. A rare chance to see a 9year old chardonnay.

2015 Geoff Weaver Ferus Lenswood Sauvignon Blanc – Estate-grown, wild-fermented in French barriques followed by 12 months maturation. Brilliant green-gold. Last tasted 3 years ago, and is still as fresh as a daisy. As good as they can possibly come in this style, said without intending to demean a wine of international class.

Huon Hooke The Real Review 17th May 2019 – Light yellow-straw colour, with a toasty, smoky barrel-influenced bouquet. Spice and roasted-nut overtones. It’s complex and mellow in the mouth from age but retains most of its zest and youth. There’s a lovely touch of sweet fruit in the centre and the wine is very satisfying to drink. A triumph.
