2020 Swinney Mouvedre Syrah Grenache Frankland River

From: $38.00

2020 Swinney Mouvedre Syrah Grenache Frankland River – Mourvedre and Grenache from their dry-grown bush vine vineyard and vertically trellised Syrah, all share the rich gravelly-loam soils of their Swinney Wilson’s Pool vineyard. Careful canopy management, fruit thinning and selective hand harvesting over multiple passes, all ensure they achieve as close to perfect fruit as possible.

The fruit was hand-picked in separate lots as flavour and tannin maturity was optimum. Each lot was berry sorted and emptied to small wooden and stainless steel fermenters via gravity to co-ferment together. They incorporated 54% whole bunches and wild fermentation to build structure and texture as well as highlight the distinctive personalities of the fruit from each parcel. The wines spent up to two weeks on skins prior to pressing directly to fine grained, large format, French oak (8% new) as separate lots which were blended, aged on lees, and bottled after 11 months in barrel. The wine was made with minimum effective Sulphites, it is unfined and minimally filtered.

Deep vibrant magenta with purple hues Alive and engaging with brick dust, wet concrete, black cherry, paprika and strawberry cream lollies. Medium to full bodied with incredible intensity, texture and length. Szechuan pepper, summer pudding, seductive creamy texture complimenting suede like tannins and a characteristic rusty nail finish.
