2019 Swinney 'Farvie' Grenache

2019 Swinney 'Farvie' Grenache

Profoundly aromatic, with layers of complexity that evolve over time in the glass.  Initially dark fruited with subtle spice, the wine opens to exhibit perfumed red cherries, rhubarb, violets and salted liquorice.

There is a beautiful clarity of fruit flavours including strawberry cream, iodine and plum skins.  The wine reveals a palate of fine detail and typical ferrous minerality -  beautifully elegant but with great depth and penetration.

Wine Profile
Production Notes
The fruit was hand-picked from established bush vine Grenache and Mourvèdre on our Frankland River vineyard, berry sorted and gravity fed to a French oak vat (1600 litres). We incorporated 8% whole bunch Grenache and 12% Mourvèdre followed by wild fermentation to build structure and texture and provide the framework on which to express the distinctive aromatics and flavours of Grenache. The wine spent 10 days on skins prior to basket pressing directly to fine grained large format seasoned French oak followed by aging for 11 months prior to bottling. The wine was made with minimum effective Sulphites, it is unfined and minimally filtered.
