Deep garnet with purple hues. The bouquet is dark and inviting with fresh blueberry and satsuma plums, couverture, slight white pepper and coal dust. A plush and velvety structure supports the distinct blueberry fruit aromas. Lavish, polished tannins provide an excellent backbone to the lively and expressive fruit characters on the palate. A rich textured wine balanced by a savoury, dry and mouth-watering finish.

Swinney Vineyards is a family winegrowing concern located in the Frankland River region of the Great Southern in Western Australia. The vineyards are part of remote and isolated 2,500 (approx. 6,000 acres) hectare grape growing and grazing property which has been the home of the Swinney family for four generations. George John Alexander Swinney was a pioneer of the Frankland River Region and settled at ‘Franklands’ in 1922. The ‘Franklands’ property is located on the banks of the Frankland River. The country is hilly and undulating and is dominated by jarrah and redgum trees growing upon ironstone gravel and loam soils. This long farming history, coupled with a passion for understanding the complex relationship between soil, topography and other key aspects of the local environment and the production of wine grapes has been translated into a unique insight for vineyard site selection and wine grape production, exemplify the Swinney’s long term commitment to producing wines that are a true expression of their unique sites and variety and in as natural and unforced manner as possible.
