Tasting Notes

Mourvèdre rosé is drawn from dry-grown bush vines on the ironstone gravel hilltop of the Powderbark vineyard. With a focus on freshness, the fruit from these vines was picked with the potential alcohol sitting between 12.5 and 13 degrees—when the fruit is just on the approach to full maturity. The Mourvèdre was then pressed using a traditional, ultra-light Champagne cycle alongside a small percentage of bush vine Grenache and a splash of Vermentino to bring subtle complexity and reinforce the freshness. The wine is then rested on its lees for three months in neutral French oak.

Winemakers Note

The road from grape grower to winemaker can be fraught with difficulties. Yet, by building from the vineyard first, employing a dream team of passionate and experienced people, and never taking the focus away from quality, siblings Matt and Janelle Swinney have created something exceptional in the Frankland River region of WA.

It’s one thing to aim for the stars; it’s quite another to have the tools to get there. Matt Swinney had a powerful vision to establish a benchmark and unique vineyard on his family’s property, situated on the gravelly, ironstone soils of the Frankland. His intention was always to found a benchmark wine label using only the finest fruit, but good things take time—especially when it comes to vines! Most plantings occurred in 1998, and the site quickly garnered a reputation for quality and originality. Innovations such as planting bush vines (the first in modern-day WA, where they are virtually unknown) and taking the leap with Grenache and Mourvèdre (in a region that many felt was too cool for these Mediterranean varieties) certainly raised eyebrows. Today, both these decisions have proven to be inspiring.
