Corymbia - Swan Valley Magic!

CORYMBIA CABERNET SAUVIGNON OFFER
 
An often overlooked yet deeply historical wine region of Western Australia, the Swan Valley is having a resurgence. With a younger cohort showcasing their talents to the country, there's none quite as impressive as Rob and Gen Mann. With Rob's deep lineage in the area and the couple's masterful touch with regional varietals, it bares no surprise that their brilliance trascended into Margaret River as well. With that introduction we are excited to offer you the new release of the Corymbia Cabernet Sauvignon; a fresh take on an Aussie icon making serious waves.

This wine is the realisation of a dream seeded by Rob’s grandfather, Jack Mann, a departure from the orthodox, to achieve a unique expression of Margaret River Cabernet. Variety, place and experience are woven together to redefine what’s possible.
 
"Our second release from our dry-grown, organically farmed Calgardup vineyard. Located  inland from the famous Redgate Beach in Margaret River, we have continued to revitalise this vineyard with acute attention to detail. The fruit was harvested on two picking dates in April; individually berry sorted prior to natural, whole-berry fermentation in a single French oak vat. Maturation followed in four seasoned barriques for 10 months. - Rob & Gen Mann

"Our second release of our Rocket’s Vineyard Chenin Blanc. We’re a little excited to welcome this wine again to our family. Rob and his father, former Australian Test Cricketer Tony “Rocket” Mann, planted the Chenin Blanc vines together on their family property more than 25 years ago. We have put in the hard work in the vineyard, transitioning to organic farming with acute attention to detail, to ensure we continue the Mann family tradition of creating remarkable wines with a unique sense of place. The grapes were harvested by hand over two days and whole bunch pressed prior to natural fermentation. A portion was matured in seasoned French oak barriques for seven months prior to blending and bottling. The wine shows distinctive characters of lemon pith, blackcurrant leaf, fresh crunchy pear with a textural, vibrant and typically saline finish. It’s so salivating, it’s the perfect drink for every occasion."

CLICK FOR RED BLEND
 
"58% Tempranillo, 30% Malbec, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon from soils of Herne Hill loam on Rocket’s Vineyard, Upper Swan. The fruit is dry grown and organically farmed.The grapes were harvested together, then individually berry sorted prior to natural fermentation in a single French oak vat. Maturation followed in the same vat and a seasoned 600-litre French oak demi-muid for 10 months.
The wine expresses the qualities of the Swan Valley that Rob’s family has admired of the region for more than 100 years. The aim is to make a wine true to its site that captures the warmth and richness of the valley and affords great drinkability. A beautifully expressive aroma of satsuma plums, black olives, rosewater and with a hint of aniseed. The wine tastes fresh and lively of pomegranate, cacao, maraschino cherries and is complemented by Tempranillo’s characteristic coal dust tannin structure." - Rob & Gen Mann
