  • Tasting Note: Glorious Grenache from the most exciting region of Western Australia that nobody has heard of, brimming with raspberries and blackcurrants and enveloped in a fine cloud of perfumed spice.
  • Food Matching: It’s opulent but elegant, explosively intense but ultra-precise, this wine would be a perfect accompaniment to smokey barbequed veggies especially grilled portobello mushrooms and halloumi. Alternatively thaty intensity lends itself nicely with gamier dishes like duck, goose, and even guineafowl or pheasant especially with honey-roasted veggies like carrots and parsnips.
  • Vineyard: The 'Farvie' vineyards sits on ironstone gravel hill tops above the Frankland River and produce wines that have a distinctly ferrous character - a character we strongly associate with the highest quality Frankland River fruit. Bush vine viticulture is a particular passion for Swinney and, with the right site selection and varieties, produces some of the most site-specific fruit we have ever seen. Growing vines this way is labour intensive and requires a lot of dedication and patience. Everything must be done by hand, but the lower yield and greater effort is worth it.
  • Vinification: Farvie Grenache is made exclusively from bush vine fruit that has achieved the 'sweet spot' of consistent, uniform ripeness at the Swinney family's finest Frankland River vineyard sites: on hilltop locations with ironstone gravel soils. Optimum ripening occurs at specific places within the canopy of individual vines, and the selection process involves a laborious three-pass harvest by hand. Once picked, 15% of the Grenache was whole-bunch co-fermented with 6% Mourvèdre - included for its fragrance and deep, gamey complexity. Fermentation was spontaneous, with wild yeasts, and after 10 days on skins, the wine was basket-pressed directly into large, seasoned French oak barrels for 11 months ageing before bottling with minimal sulphites and filtering; and no fining.
