Our Review

The Swinney family (currently parents Graham and Kaye, and son and daughter Matt and Janelle) has resided on their 2500ha property since 1922. In the ’90s they decided to diversify and now have 160ha of vines across 4 vineyards, including the Powderbark Ridge Vineyard in Frankland River (planted in ’98, purchased in partnership with former Hardys winemaker Peter Dawson). The lion’s share goes to shiraz (67ha) and cabernet sauvignon (48ha), followed by riesling, semillon, pinot gris, gewürztraminer, viognier, vermentino and malbec. They also pushed the envelope by establishing grenache, tempranillo and mourvèdre as bush vines, a rarity in this part of the world. -JAMES HALLIDAY
