"To say the latest crop of Mann-made Swinney wines is outstanding would be to damn with faint praise ... It’s a while since I’ve been so impressed by a crop of new wines". Huon Hooke, www.therealreview.com, Sep 2019.

Striking pale straw with green hues, the wine is vibrant and intense with jasmine blossom, lychee, candle wax and honey suckle.  The palate is medium bodied with an intense and textural pithy, briny, mouthfeel.  Mandarin, lemon grass and white nectarine fruits are balanced by cut lime acidity,  driving through to a powerful, long finish.

 "Deep, brooding spicy wine of black fruit and savoury dried herb and lavender perfume. It’s defined as much by anything else, by its dense shale-like or graphite tannin. So much good stuff to chew on, and roll around the mouth. Also, black olive and grilled meat strewn with pepper, some raspberry maybe, and freshness to acidity. Length is excellent too, saline and savoury, with uncompromising tannin and grip as it goes. It’s a fair way out of the mainstream in terms of Australian wine, and none the worse for that." 95 pts

Dark and saturated with an inky, richly fragrant fruit profile combining Szechuan pepper, anise,  blueberries and old fashioned salted liquorice.

This is medium to full-bodied wine with a cool slate-like mouthfeel complimenting the deep mulberry fruits and allspice.  A hint of fine cedary oak lends support to a wine of delicious length and drinkability.  Plush, rich and satisfying.

"Them tannins. Whoa. Italianate and fine, a swish and web that sucks and pulls, draws long and gives this beautiful shape to the mellifluous, come-hither dark fruit and wild herb n spice that features so heavily in this wine. Amazing perfume, a little quieter than 2018 but with all the appeal and flighty, floral and spice fragrance of best grenache from anywhere. Pent up, tight, precise and pure, the palate is a masterpiece example of the variety. That tension, that length! All here. Such a good wine." 96+ pts

2019 Farvie Grenache and Syrah not only follow on from the attention grabbing 18's but extend already high expectations.

Ray Jordan, The West Australian, February 2021
What a follow-up to the remarkable 2018 debut. The high perfumed notes strike immediately and almost define what is to follow. It’s a very pretty wine with more seductive perfumed notes than the 2018, most likely a result of the slightly cooler vintage. There is about 12 per cent mourvedre in the blend and all the fruit comes off the Swinney bush vines. Only large-format seasoned oak has been used. A striking wine of refinement and power that delivers with an effortless deft touch. This is a modern grenache with a distinctive Frankland stamp. 98 pts

Ray Jordan, The West Australian, Feb 2021
Tremendous example of syrah from Frankland River. High-end aromatics that release after decanting. And it needed decanting because it is still such a tightly wound and tense wine, withholding its best for a few years. The juice runs by gravity to a large oak vat and two 600L barrels before gentle pressing to large format French oak of which only 8 per cent is new. It’s unfined and minimally filtered which really maximises the sense that this is a wine of the vineyard. Glorious wine that captures all that is good from this region. 98 pts

Huon Hooke, The Real Review, February 2021
Very deep, bright purple/red colour, with an alluring bouquet of smoked smallgoods, assorted spices, dark plum and a flick of black pepper. It's highly concentrated and essency, with pristine fruit clarity and a tremendously long carry. Red and black fruits carry through an almost endless finish. Great purity of shiraz fruit. A most impressive young shiraz, which should have a tremendous future. 96 pts

"This is a very serious wine indeed and it gives me more pleasure than almost anything I can think of this year... this wine is all about the fruit and I have tasted nothing like it, at least made from Grenache.  The insanely mineral palate reminds me of elite Nebbiolo, visceral, elemental Pinot Noir, majestic Baga and other red grapes which celebrate bitterness!  There are clearly insane vibrations emanating from the soil here which make this fruit so damned toned.  The flavour silhouette is slender, athletic, toned and immensely powerful and yet the flavour is gentle, caressing, magical and life-fulfilling.  It is a near-perfect wine." 19.5/20

"A jaw-dropping, ground-breaking syrah from Frankland River. This is not the sweet fruit Aussie shiraz or syrah but more a savoury, grainy style more associated with the Rhone in France. Fine, firm tannins run deep and the oak has been expertly and subtly applied. But it is the way the fruit expresses that strikes as different and exciting." 98 pts
