Swinney Farvie Grenache 2019

Description

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.

2022 Halliday Wine Companion
What sets hearts on fire the world over for Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the muscular, ferrous, salty raspberry humbug and minerally hutzpah. It sets the high-tide mark for grenache. We grenache drinkers yearn for it. And here it is. The strength of Frankland River is its ability to marry sweet (glossy) red fruit to savoury, gravelly earth. The 2018 was a staggering showpiece, this is more restrained, cooler and finer, yet equally long. Choose your weapon. 98pts – Exceptional
