2021 Geyer Wine co Semillon/Muscat
From three separate sites across the Eden (Semillon) and Barossa (Semillon & Muscat) Valleys. The Barossa Semillon site is 80 years old and has been farmed organically since Dave Geyer started taking fruit from it 2 years ago. The Eden Valley Semillon is from Dave’s in-law’s property which is dry grown on alluvial sands. Weed control is essential for maintaining a balanced vine here, something the sheep help with in winter. The Barossa Muscat site is run by an old German farmer, who, by Dave’s account, “really gives a sh*t”. The site has been composted and devoid of chemicals for the last few decades. It is minimally irrigated and only in cases of extreme heat.
