2018 Swinney 'Farvie' Grenache

Release Date - March 2020

"Deep red colour with a tinge of purple, and good depth. The bouquet is superbly aromatic, with an array of spice nuances, fruit-driven and beguiling. The palate has great intensity and drive, elegance and charm, with a deep core of sweetly ripe berry flavours and substantial tannins drying the finish and aftertaste. The tannins are abundant and ripe, the finish very long-lasting. A modern grenache style that exhibits an elegance and lightness of touch seldom seen in grenache in Australia. A stunning wine. (5% mourvèdre. To be released in March 2020)." 97 pts

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. We incorporated 15% whole bunch Grenache and 5% 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, is un-fined and minimally filtered.
