    Swinney Grenache 2019

    Bright deep and complex with fresh cranberry, brambly fruit, light spice, red licorice and musk sticks. This wine is classically medium bodied with lovely clarity. Maraschino cherries, rhubarb and all spice compliment crunchy red berry fruits. Fine structural tannins provide a great definition to the long, intense and full-flavoured palate. The fruit was hand-picked from established bush vine Grenache, berry sorted and emptied to small wooden and stainless steel fermenters via gravity. They incorporated 16% whole bunches and wild fermentation to build structure and texture and provide the framework on which to express the distinctive aromatics and flavours of Grenache. The wine spent two weeks on skins prior to pressing directly to fine grained large format seasoned French oak, and was aged for 11 months before bottling. The wine was made with minimum effective Sulphites, it is unfined and minimally filtered.

    Just recently I saw all this gushing, cooing froth over the Swinney Farvie grenache wine compiled to look real sweet for those needing a cattle prod into the fancy-priced wine, but I’ll stick by my guns that the 2018 regular Swinney grenache, ie this wine, was the superior wine; enjoy the oak and extraction, pals, this cuvee was more unadorned, untinkered with, and more an essence of place, with purity of fruit and tannin to the fore. So brilliant. Another stellar release here. Hope the Farvie can best it, and amazing if it can…

    Them tannins. Whoa. Italianate and fine, a swish and web that sucks and pulls, draws long and gives this beautiful shape to the mellifluous, come-hither dark fruit and wild herb n spice that features so heavily in this wine. Amazing perfume, a little quieter than 2018 but with all the appeal and flighty, floral and spice fragrance of best grenache from anywhere. Pent up, tight, precise and pure, the palate is a masterpiece example of the variety. That tension, that length! All here. Such a good wine.
