2005 Riesling

Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age, Tues 7th March 06

Geoff Weaver is one of the best winemakers in the Adelaide Hills. He shows mastery of many varieties and Riesling is a high point.

The 2005 wine has a nose of juicy brown pear, lime, light bakery spices and mineral undertones. The palate is supple and mouth-filling with excellent acidity and a dry, muscular backbone.

Should be a classic with time.
