A vibrant and immersive nose, with rich roasted paprika notes supporting deep, inky blueberry fruit, wet slate, bitumen, and aniseed. Structure is the defining feature of this wine, with bold savoury saturated tannins framing a palate that is beautifully textured, with a real freshness and energy providing incredible length. A complex and full flavoured Syrah exhibiting fruits of mulberry, plum, currants and black pepper. - Winery Note
This is the second release of the Farvie wines from Swinney, following their incredible debut last year. They are as exciting as they are rare, representing the pinnacle of Grenache and Syrah from the Frankland River region.
From carefully tended bush vines, each bunch of fruit is hand-selected with several successive passes through the vineyard. In this way, only the most optimum fruit is chosen to produce the Farvie wines. Shade cloths are utilised in the vineyards too, to protect the fruit from the harshest sun, and aiding in fruit uniformity. The idea that great wines are made in the vineyard has been fully embraced by Rob Mann and the Swinney team, with these exacting standards utilised to ensure the premium nature of the fruit.
