Swinney, Frankland River Syrah Mourvedre Grenache 2018 - 2019-2020 reviews

___

The Swinney family's roots in Frankland River stretch back over 100 years.

George John Alexander Swinney was a pioneer of the region, settling a grazing property in Franklands in 1922. Today the property is run by fourth generation brother and sister, Matt and Janelle Swinney. They are taking the family property into great new territory.

Bush vines litter the property. Riesling, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre are finding a very happy home on the ironstone slopes above the Frankland River.

Now, with viticulturalist wizard Lee Haselgrove tending the vines and sixth generation winemaker Rob Mann crafting the wines in the cellar, this label is on track to become one of the regional benchmarks in short order.

The fruit was hand-picked from Swinney's Frankland River vineyard in separate lots as flavour and tannin maturity was optimum and each lot sorted by hand and crushed into small open top fermenters. They incorporated 15% whole bunches and wild fermentation to build structure and texture as well as highlight the distinctive personalities of the fruit from each parcel. The wines spent up to two weeks on skins prior to pressing directly to fine grained large format French oak (25% new), as separate lots, which were blended and bottled after 11 months in barrel. The wine was made with minimum effective sulphites, was not fined and only minimally filtered.

Syrah 43%, Mourvedre 38% and Grenache 19%.

Plush, velvety Western Australian red blend, notably blueberry in flavour, with a trace of satsuma and an intriguing nose of white pepper and a touch of coal dust.
