Swinney Syrah 2021


Shiraz/Syrah and Australia. It just works. The 2021 is quiet different from previous releases; rounder in shape, ample with finer, lacier tannins. Not so sleek or linear and a dialling back of the mouth puckering mineral acidity. Blueberry, sweet cherry, violets, raspberry and delicate spice. Plush, without any sense of heaviness, a triumph of a full body in perfect proportions. As charming as it is powerful, finishing with very fine tannins. I think this will surprise in the cellar, despite the gentle grip, for at least two decades. Waters Wine Co. 


Deep red-purple with a meaty reductive note overlying spices and black cherry to blueberry aromas, the palate supple and smoothly fleshy, medium to full bodied and elegantly styled, very approachable now and with good potential for aging. This is a ripping shiraz, nearly as good as the 2020 Farvie. 95 Points – Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Deep blood red and maroon in colour, we have notes of black fruits, chocolate, animal hides, earth, leather, spices, cloves and florals. A supple texture and there is immaculate balance at every turn. Fine satiny tannins. Bright acidity runs the full journey and helps to drive the palate. There is very good length. A decade or more ahead, though a cracker now. This, and other wines in this range, are really putting pressure on their big guns (the Farvie range). The score will surely go higher if you have patience. 96 Points – Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot
