Swinney Grenache 2018

Top 3 grenache in Aus for me, or something like that. Maybe best on a day. So perfume, pretty, floral, just ripe red berry fruitiness, undergrowth and herbal notes too. The tannins. Wow. The tannins. Incredible ribs and puckering chew, but slender, fine, woven through pretty but inky, dark, anise-kissed berry fruitiness and an almost nutty-earthy undercurrent. Mineral, almost ferrous character here. Superb wine of shape, detail, deliciousness and stellar tannin. 96 points – Mike Bennie, The Winefront

Medium to deep, bright red colour with a good tint of purple. The bouquet is very fresh and vibrant, medium-bodied and intense, the tannins refined and harmonious, and there is no obvious oak character. Red berry and cherry flavours tinged with spices and graphite. A delicious modern style red wine which is up-front and very approachable already, but has the backbone to handle food and will also age well. 95 points – Huon Hooke, www.therealreview.com, Aug 2019

Hand-picked from 18-year old bush vine Grenache on Swinney’s Frankland River vineyard. Sorted by hand and crushed into small open top fermenters. 20% whole bunches and wild fermentation to build structure and texture. The wine spent two weeks on skins prior to pressing directly to fine-grained large-format seasoned French oak. Aged for 11 months prior to bottling. Made with minimum effective Sulphites. Not fined and only minimally filtered.
