2019 Swinney 'Farvie' Syrah

RELEASE DATE - MARCH 1, 2021

A vibrant and immersive nose, with rich roasted paprika notes supporting deep, inky blueberry fruit, wet slate, bitumen, and aniseed.

Structure is the defining feature of this wine, with bold savoury saturated tannins framing a palate that is beautifully textured, with a real freshness and energy providing incredible length.  A complex and full flavoured Syrah exhibiting fruits of mulberry, plum, currants and black pepper.

Wine Profile
Production Notes
The fruit was hand-picked from a single parcel of 22-year old Syrah vines on our Frankland River vineyard, berry sorted and gravity fed to a French oak vat (1600 litres) and two demi-muids. We incorporated 54% whole bunches followed by wild fermentation to build structure and texture while promoting the bright and spicy aromatics. The wine spent 11 days on skins prior to basket pressing directly to fine grained, large format, French oak (8% new), followed by ageing for 11 months prior to bottling. The wine was made with minimum effective Sulphites, it is unfined and minimally filtered.
