2014 Geoff Weaver Ferus Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Value Rating

Cracka Review

Geoff Weaver’s career in wine is one that dates back to 1972 and he’s been responsible for making some of Australia’s most famous wines. He’s a pioneer of the Adelaide Hills and must have known that one day Sauvignon Blanc from the region would rule supreme. The Ferus is not the conventional aromatically fruity Sauvignon Blanc, it's more of a dry, subtle, complex table wine and it will show its best with time.

Winemaker's Notes

Complexity, fragrance and understated power combined with a lingering savoury aftertaste are the features of this wine. An understated wine for those who appreciate finesse, fine texture and subtle richness. Similar in style to our 2013. A wine for ageing and for food.

Aroma: Fragrant and subtle. Mineral notes as well as florals and esters. Some creamy, lanolin notes. Elusive, rich yet understated. Much less aromatically fruity than the conventional Sauvignon Blanc

Colour: Pale straw with a light green tinge

Palate: Gently flavoured with the characters apparent on the nose carrying through to the palate. Ripe fruit with a rich middle palate and a lingering mineral finish with a lively acidity

Cellaring: Will develop the mineral character of classically aged flinty Sauvignon over a decade or so. Stelvin ensures its freshness and freedom from taint

Alc/vol: 11.75%

2014 Geoff Weaver Ferus Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2014 Vintage) says
Wild yeast-fermented in French barriques and aged on lees for 12 months. It offers a rare combination of elegance and complexity, the latter achieved without any funky/reductive characters, the former with a combination of citrus, white flowers and tropical flavours. Still cruising.
