2023 Swinney Mourvèdre Rosé

Our Mourvèdre Rosé is drawn from dry-grown, bush vines on the ironstone gravel hilltop of our Powderbark vineyard.  It’s rosé that’s built from the ground up, born from the same level of viticultural detail that goes into all our wines. Seasoned with a little Grenache and Vermentino, co-fermented naturally and elevated in old oak, the result is pale and precise, textural and savoury with the inherent drinkability that lies at the heart of every great rosé.

"Perhaps it was inevitable that a stunning rosé would emanate from the celestial Mourvèdre vines at the Swinney vineyards in Frankland River. Well, this is it – and it is nothing short of breathtaking. I have never tasted a finer Australian Rosé, and it is all the more gripping that it is not made from Grenache!"

Tasting Notes
Pale salmon On the nose, fresh fruit characters of strawberry and rose water combine with some subtle complexity including beeswax, Szechuan pepper, and oyster shell. The palate is textural, full flavoured, yet finely balanced, with a mix of rhubarb and pomegranate combined with fresh curd. The finish is soft, with refreshing pithy acidity and a bone-dry, briny finish.
Vineyard Notes
Our collective aim is to produce an outstanding Rosé with what we think is the best possible base material available - Mourvèdre. The fruit was hand-picked from bush vine Mourvèdre with the inclusion of a small percentage of Grenache and Vermentino for subtle complexity.
Production Notes
The fruit was whole bunch pressed together, filled directly to seasoned French oak barriques and then naturally fermented. Following fermentation, the wine rested on lees for three months to preserve freshness and build texture prior to bottling.
