Geyer Wine Co Semillon 2017

28.00

The Geyer Semillon is a blend of fruit from three 90 year old vineyards and vinified in two lots. Half was pressed and fermented in stainless steel, whilst the other parcel incorporated a portion fermenting on skins, and the remainder as whole bunches. The  components were blended upon completion of fermentation and aged in a 1950’s foudre for six months. Bottled without any addition of sulphur or fining/filtration.

Old vine Semillon - what an absolute joy! 90 year old vines may not produce much fruit, but each berry has the most immense concentration. Punchy fruit driven nose, with pink grapefruit, lemon balm and moringa flowers. Textured, nutty palate with flavours of dried mango, tangerine, lemon sherberts and a firm, grippy finish. The end of the bottle might be a little cloudier, but don't worry, it's just due to the choice of producing wine without filtration or fining.

Geyer Wine Co is headed up by Dave Geyer in the Barossa Valley. In an ode to heritage, but with eyes always looking to the future, Dave finds, revives and nurtures some of the neglected vineyards of the region to produce honest, hand crafted wines, often from unsung and unfashionable grape varieties. Keen to avoid all synthetic chemicals and to be in touch with the fruit at all stages from the vine to the bottle, he farms his vineyard parcels sustainably, gently coaxing the fruit from grape to bottle in the cellar with minimal handling, to best highlight regional and cultivar identity. These wines are unlikely to be like anything you will have ever tasted from the Barossa before, with their stereotypical high alcohol big reds, Dave prides himself on producing wines with fantastic concentration, whilst still maintaining moderate alcohol levels and fine acidity. With the Barossa's long hot days, picking early, and a great deal of care in the cellar are key.
