Black Grape – Star Anise – Leather
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. Bottled at 14% ABV.
