Swinney Farvie Shiraz 

Tremendous example of syrah from Frankland River. High-end aromatics that release after decanting. And it needed decanting because it is still such a tightly wound and tense wine, withholding its best for a few years. The juice runs by gravity to a large oak vat and two 600L barrels before gentle pressing to large format French oak of which only 8 per cent is new. It’s unfined and minimally filtered which really maximises the sense that this is a wine of the vineyard. Glorious wine that captures all that is good from this region. 98 pts Ray Jordan The West Australian

Succulent, supple syrah, slick with spice and savoury characters, slips over the palate with silky yet sinewy tannins, delivers serious concentration and a sense of seamlessness. Super stuff. It’s fragrant, medium weight, dark fruited, peppery-cinnamon spice laden, feels complex in the sense that lots is going on when you sip it. There’s great density yet freshness, shape and drive. A beautiful mouthful here. Potent now as something special, the future should unfurl this wine nicely too. Class all the way. Mike Bennie Winefront Feb 21

Huon Hooke, The Real Review, February 2021
Very deep, bright purple/red colour, with an alluring bouquet of smoked smallgoods, assorted spices, dark plum and a flick of black pepper. It's highly concentrated and essency, with pristine fruit clarity and a tremendously long carry. Red and black fruits carry through an almost endless finish. Great purity of shiraz fruit. A most impressive young shiraz, which should have a tremendous future. 96 pts
