Swinney Mourvedre 2021


An underappreciated variety in Australia, but I have no doubt that we will soon be tasting a Farvie Mourvedre, based on the quality of this bottle. Classic aromatics of smokey, earthy, campfire, camphor and dark fruits. Again in 2021 the shape is so different from previous vintages, rounder and somehow a little bit grander. But make no mistake this is very focused. Medium to full bodied, with rich chewy tannins, piquant acidity, the most of all the reds. Bitter chocolate and chalky mouthfeel. Exceedingly layered and complex, haunting, grand, pure and wild all at the same time. The ultimate in sensuousness. Waters Wine Co. 

Very deep bright purple-red hue; the bouquet spicy, rusty iron, as well as chocolate-coated cherries, medium-full bodied and firm with a good solid backbone of tannin, and an earthy peppery, graphite kind of mineral note, savoury and concentrated, powerful and penetrating through a long palate. Superb, and it has potential to improve further with time. 95 Points – Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Deep red/garnet colour. The nose is all exotic spices, florals, cherries, raspberries, black olives and warm handfuls of freshly turned earth. One can almost envisage Lang Hancock back in the day when he first grabbed a handful of that red soil. There is an appealing plushness to all this. A wine of mid-length, with fine acidity, there is real grip here. Leave it for three or four years to allow it to fully come together and reveal its glories at their best. Then drink it over the next six to ten years. 94 Points – Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot
