Let's be honest, this vintage kept us waiting. Unseasonal rain in February saw the Swan River reach peak levels that left some vineyards in the Swan Valley under water. Our family vineyard fortunately avoided wet feet. The Marri blossom featured on our label is indicative of the unseasonal rains and cooler temperatures in the lead up to harvest. Despite picking our grapes 5 weeks late, we feel the wine expresses the qualities of the Swan Valley that Rob’s family have admired of the region for over 100 years.

The grapes for our 2017 Corymbia were hand harvested together to create a field blend of 69% Tempranillo, 19% Malbec and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were individually berry sorted prior to carbonic maceration and natural fermentation in a single French oak vat. Maturation followed in seasoned French oak barriques for 10 months. The wine is vibrant, savoury and eminently drinkable.
