Corymbia Tempranillo Field Blend 2020

This is a vintage where having a single vineyard red wine blend is so valuable. It was hot and dry and yields on our reds were tiny. Two separate picking dates were combined for co-fermentation to provide a buffer against any shortcomings and built a unique personality in the resultant wine that would  not otherwise have been possible.

Vintage 2020

This is a vintage where having a single vineyard red wine blend is so valuable. It was hot and dry and yields on our reds were tiny. Two separate picking dates were combined for co-fermentation to provide a buffer against any shortcomings and built a unique personality in the resultant wine that would  not otherwise have been possible.

The organically farmed, dry-grown vines stand in Herne Hill loam on Rocket’s Vineyard, Upper Swan. Rob and his late father - Australian Test Cricketer Tony (Rocket) Mann - planted the vineyard together on their family property more than 35 years ago on what was an old currant vineyard. The site is now in conversion to organic certification.

Vibrant and aromatic with layers of interest, the wine smells of the first rain, aniseed, fresh-tanned leather and mulberry. Crunchy cranberry and blueberry fruits, squid ink umami and plush velvety structural tannins leave a lasting impression. - Rob & Gen Mann

So distinctive. So of a place. I’m thinking fresh blackberry, rain on a hot road, star anise, leather, pepper and rosemary. Black fruit, coffee, black olives, earthy and saline, boysenberry and tar, and yet spicy and vigorous, with a dirty come-hither chew and sooty tannin, and a long umami finish. Wonderful wine. Charismatic. Love this. 95 points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front August 2021
