It is the tannin which guarantees its positive, graceful ageing.

Ripe fruit, complex juicy and supple. Generously flavoured with a lingering, drying savoury tannin on the finish

Lenswood in the cool, higher altitudes of the Adelaide Hills.
Geoff Weaver’s vineyard at Lenswood high in the Adelaide Hills is devoted to grow the richly flavoured grapes that produce his wines.
Low crops mean flavour concentration, early ripening and generally good acid levels because ripening is relatively quick. If ripening is prolonged it leaves time for the natural acids to metabolise and be lost. We rarely need to add acid which I feel is a major advantage for our vineyard. Natural acids are tight and harmonious.
