Geyer comes from a family of Barossa Valley grape growers and undertook a fairly familiar process of gaining winemaking experience by working for top producers around the world. Those travels took him to South Africa, working at Lammershoek Winery in Swartland, France’s Roussillon at the revered Domaine Matassa, as well as to the US and New Zealand. Geyer’s career, however, began with vineyard work at Torbreck in 2002, which started a seven-year stint in the winery.
After Torbreck, and back from his travels, Geyer and his wife, Sarah, settled in the Barossa permanently. Starting in 2014, Geyer worked with Pete Schell at Spinifex – the cradle for many a top young maker – which gave him both the confidence and the critical sounding board to develop his own wines.
Geyer started playing with the first wines for his Geyer Wine Co. and Yetti & The Kokonut labels, toying with a natural approach across the wines, and experimenting to tease out different expressions from across vineyard sites that he knew well. These sites would become the core of the Geyer wines, with tiny parcels of old vines selected and the plots sometimes lovingly restored after years of neglect.
The Grapes for this wine from from four different vineyards across South Australia, all are farmed organically or are in conversion since being taken on by Dave. The Grenache and Semillon are from 75 years old vines in the Barossa Valley with the rest around 20-25 years old. Cabernet Franc sourced from McLaren Vale. Chardonnay and Riesling from Eden Valley.
