New vintages of Farvie from Swinney – just arrived for April
- Farvie Grenache 2019
- Farvie Syrah 2019
Nick Ryan of @nickryanwine commented in January 2021, that “2019 Farvie Grenache and Syrah not only follow on from the attention grabbing 18’s but extend already high expectations. ”
Both wines were made with minimum effective sulphites and they are both unfined and minimally filtered.
2019 Swinney ‘Farvie’ Grenache: The fruit was hand-picked from established bush vine Grenache and Mourvèdre on the Swinney Frankland River vineyard, berry sorted and gravity fed to a French oak vat (1600 litres). They used 8% whole bunch Grenache and 12% Mourvèdre.
2019 Swinney ‘Farvie’ Syrah: The fruit was hand-picked from a single parcel of 22-year old Syrah vines on the Swinney Frankland River vineyard, berry sorted and gravity fed to a French oak vat (1600 litres) and two demi-muids.
More details about the production of these wines are written on the Swinney website.
