Swinney Farvie Syrah 2019
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.
2022 James Halliday Wine Companion
Bacon fat, maple, salted pomegranate, raspberry, graphite, red dirt, mulberry and pink peppercorn. Like the Hokusai wave, this crashes and courses with flavours and textures, ebbing and flowing on the palate. This is balanced, restrained, long, powerful and most importantly, shaped and structured by supple, chewy tannins. They hold the fruit in the cups of their hands and usher it through a very long finish. A weightlessly poetic wine. 98 pts – Exceptional
