Corymbia chenin will be The Next Big Thing... Whoosh. Belter of a wine.
About The Wine
Scintillating Chenin Blanc straight out of the West and the hands of Rob & Genevieve Mann.
This vineyard was planted by Rob and his father Tony over 25 years ago. This is only the first release of Chenin from this site under the Mann's label but it has come out all guns blazing.
The knock on WA Chenin Blanc has always been the lack of character and concentration: not the case here. This is a laser beam of apple, quartz, flint and lime. It twist and turns like a knife through the mouth. This will cellar a dream.
Just the first release and straight to the front of the line of Australian Chenin Blanc. Bravo.
Corymbia is the latest chapter in the story of one of the founding families of WA wine. The Manns have grown grapes and made wine in the area for over a century. Generations of knowledge and understanding has been handed down from parents to children, now to Rob & Genevieve Mann, who have distilled that knowledge into their budding label, Corymbia.
These are organically-farmed, single-vineyard wines that have real heart and integrity. They are tightly wound, firm in structure and show a level of tension and definition that you rarely see in a brand so young.
Corymbia are taking the West by storm, claiming awards and accolades galore. You're watching a historic wine family with a fresh new vehicle to showcase their knowledge - it's one of the most exciting new wine ventures in the country currently.
