Delicate, as usual, with a flood of green apple, white flowers, Turkish apricots, cheesecloth and beeswax. This has Australian bush, and wide open summer air, and saltbush, too. The phenolics have a bitter little kick in them through the finish ... but that's ok, I was waiting for it. The waxy, lanolin character is exactly en pointe for the variety.

How's it taste?
The wine smells of new season grapefruit, fresh fennel fronds and bath salts. Blackcurrant leaf, crispy pear and saltbush flood the palate. The wine is textural with its trademark Rocket’s Vineyard chalky grip. The wine grabs your full attention with its juicy saline tang.- Rob and Gen Mann
How was it made?
2021 Corymbia Rocket's Vineyard Chenin Blanc is named in tribute to Rob's late father and former Australian Test Cricketer Tony "Rocket" Mann. Tony and Rob planted Rocket's Vineyard together on their family property in the Swan Valley more than 35 years ago, on what was an old currant vineyard. The fruit is dry grown and organically farmed. In 2021 we proudly achieved certified "in conversion" status with ACO Certification. 100% Chenin Blanc (Noack massal selection planted in 1992) grown on soils of Houghton loam. The grapes were harvested by hand and whole bunch-pressed prior to natural fermentation. A portion was fermented and matured in seasoned French oak barriques for seven months prior to blending and bottling.
