2005 Chardonnay

Philip Rich. The Australian Financial Review Magazine, 24 November 2006

One of the unsung heroes of the Australian wine industry, Geoff Weaver has quietly gone about the business of making subtle and well crafted wines at his Lenswood vineyard in the Adelaide Hills, established in 1982. Weaver has devoted himself to the venture full time since leaving Hardys, where he was chief winemaker, in 1992.
This very bright wine exudes elegance with ist pristine melon and nectarine fruit aromas and beautifully handled vanillin oak (50 percent new), which sits quiely in the background. The palate is equally linear and refined and there is a lovely thread of acidity that runs throughout the wine, suggesting that this should age superbly over the next five to 10 years.
