Geoff Weaver Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2012 Vintage) says
Very lean, sporting an edgy acidity, this slightly herbal chardonnay has a rather closed, waxy, floral and apple-like bouquet backed by light vanilla/clove oak and a greenish, butyric note. It's long and focused, with a restrained presence of nectarine, peach and lemon with undertones of grapefruit and artfully integrated vanilla oak, finishing with hints of cashew and taut, lemony acids.

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
A joyful, delightfully fruit-driven chardonnay with pristine freshness, length and elegance. Deep aromas of nectarine and peach knit tightly with nutty, dusty and spicy oak, with undertones of creamy yeast, cloves, cinnamon and a faint smokiness. It's long and concentrated, with penetrative flavours of grapefruit, melon, pineapple and stonefruits tightly integrated with fresh oak and finishing with crunchy acids and excellent length.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Bright green-straw; wild yeast-fermented in French oak; mlf and lees contact have given the extra complexity and texture sought by Geoff Weaver, but have also left the vibrant fruit and natural acidity in charge, and the finish very long.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Has all the elegance and finesse that is the hallmark of the Weaver style; white peach, creamy/nutty nuances and balanced acidity give the wine harmony and length.

Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
Smooth and supple, generous and rather oaky, this essentially harmonious young chardonnay marries fresh peach, melon and apricot-like fruit with sweet spicy vanilla oak and a savoury, wheatmeal-like aspect. Likely to build over the next year or so, it's attractively long and juicy, finishing with a lingering warmth and richness.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Ultimate elegance and restraint; wild yeast, mlf and no added acidity; all the inputs seamlessly moulded in the light stone fruit, cashew and cream palate.

Jeremy Oliver (2005 Vintage) says
Complex and oxidative, with a polished, oaky fragrance of delicate lemony fruit backed by nuances of wheatmeal, lime juice and minerals, this dry and elegant chardonnay should develop even more complexity. Long and smooth, its newish creamy, nutty oak influences support its attractive flavours of apple, pear and peach, before a lingering dry, austere and shapely finish of vibrant acidity.

Jeremy Oliver (2001 Vintage) says
Restrained, complex aromas of peach and pear, apple and lime juice are intermeshed with restrained, creamy and lightly leesy barrel ferment influences. Tangy, vibrant guava and grapefruit flavour extends down the rather fine and fluffy palate which presents a measured balance between winemaking artefact and natural fruit. Pleasingly long and harmonious.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; super-fine, elegant, intense and very long citrussy/tangy palate.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Glowing yellow-green; the bouquet has a mix of cashew, fig, melon and citrus; the palate has a similar range of flavours, lively, fresh and long, and delicate oak. Will develop slowly.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
The colour shows more development than one might expect; the bouquet is likewise a fraction errant, suggesting some botrytis. The palate does nothing to change the message, with tropical fruit flavours; the wine finishes with the typical bright acidity of the Geoff Weaver style, but is diffuse.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; a subtle, beautifully balanced bouquet with melon/stone fruit seamlessly married with oak. The palate is as beautifully proportioned as the bouquet suggests it will be, with melon and ripe apple fruit flavours dusted with a subliminal touch of spicy oak. Elegance personified.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the bouquet is clean, with ripe nectarine/citrus fruit and subtle barrel ferment influences underneath. The palate is similar, with less overt grapefruit than usual, yet (happily) it is the fruit which does dominate the palate, with a slight minerally touch to the finish.
