The stylish Margaret River accord of Cabernet and Merlot, with a timely inclusion of the rakish Petit Verdot. The Swings & Roundabouts team purposely leave the fruit to ripen on the vine for the longest time allowed by nature, encouraging the development of fully developed tannins and sugars alongside heightened varietal characters. They then have to fight with the kangaroos over possession of these deeply flavoured grapes. A vigorous red wine to match aged cheddars, stronger cuts of meat or well prepared game.
Swings & Roundabouts is based at Yallingup where it crafts pure Margaret River wines and smart West Australian blends. Widely acknowledged as one of the region's leading winemakers, Mark Lane found his way home in rather a roundabout way. For a while he made cheese in Melbourne and completed apprenticeships in the Yarra Valley with the likes of Tarrawarra and Eyton-on-Yarra before making the trek west to take up position of chief winemaker with Deep Woods and Flying Fish Cove. Parcels of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are harvested at optimum maturity, each parcel is separately handled and fermented, followed by a term of maturation in French oak.
TASTING NOTES
Deep purple red with a dark core. Ripe plums with cherry and mocha notes over fine vanillin French oak. Dark fruits with classical Margaret River Cabernet varietal, choc mint characters lifting the nose. The cherry characters carry through to the palate, dark berry fruits are present, Rich and layered palate with generous flavours of plum and spice leading to a fine mouthfilling middle palate exhibiting fine grained tannins to finish.
