2017 Geyer Wine Co. Semillon

Barossa Valley, SA

Delicious skin-contact old vine Semillon from the Barossa Valley.



About The Wine

A small patch of old vine Semillon grown in the Barossa Valley looked to Dave Geyer like a prime candidate for a grown-up amber wine in 2017.

Dave has plenty of experience making skin contact whites, meshing texture with vibrancy under the Yetti and the Kokonut label with his good mate Koen for the last few years.

Fruit quality and intensity is of the utmost importance when making amber wines and Dave has nailed this Semillon release.

It's a bold and striking wine in the glass, with layers of complexity and good attack through the mouth. Spot on. And a great realisation of this old vine Barossa fruit.

About Geyer Wine Co.

David Geyer is challenging some of the traditions of the Barossa Valley, giving a second life to some of the neglected sites across the region and playing with varieties that aren’t exactly mainstream but are all universally delicious.

He makes wines as naturally as possible, always striving for drinkability and charisma in some of these unsung hero varieties of the region.

Some of the grapes he grows himself, some come from like-minded growers in the region.

This is the new Barossa. Check it out.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Pow! Stick your beak in the glass and it's rushed with lemon, blood orange, camomile tea and baking herbs. A flood of orange/tangerine fruit with a tactile tug of tannin studded throughout. It's big and juicy but gravelly at the same time. Really nice job done here. Plenty of impact without it getting scary. A pleasure to drink. - Different Drop Wine Team
