Swinney Farvie Grenache 2019

Swinney’s 2019 Farvie Grenache is a remarkable and unique expression of Grenache that tops the much-heralded 2018 release. There is so much finesse, restraint and purity on offer here, as well as a tight, savoury structure that is built for the long haul. For lovers of savoury reds, it is already seductive… and great.

What a follow-up to the remarkable 2018 debut. The high perfumed notes strike immediately and almost define what is to follow. It’s a very pretty wine with more seductive perfumed notes than the 2018, most likely a result of the slightly cooler vintage. There is about 12 per cent Mourvèdre in the blend and all the fruit comes off the Swinney bush vines. Only large-format seasoned oak has been used. A striking wine of refinement and power that delivers with an effortless deft touch. This is a modern grenache with a distinctive Frankland stamp. 98 points, Ray Jordan, The West Australian

The Farvie Grenache is cropped from vines planted in 2004, in deep gravelly ironstone over clay sub-soils on the Estate’s upper northeast-facing hillside crest. Each of these vines is picked over multiple passes, with only the very best bunches from each vine – those that are perfectly ripe – set aside for Farvie.

The bunches for the 2019 were further sorted in the winery, then gravity-fed to a 1600-litre French oak vat and two upright demi-muids for natural fermentation, incorporating 20% whole bunches. 12% Mourvèdre was included in the ferment. The wine spent 10 days on skins prior to basket-pressing directly to fine-grained, large format, seasoned French oak for 11 months maturation on gross lees. Made with minimum effective sulphites and bottled unfined.
