It exudes all the characters of Margaret River Cabernet that the world admires.
About The Wine
The Mann name is synonymous with Cabernet from the West.
Rob wanted this wine to be an expression of Margaret River: the soils, the ocean surrounds, the long Summer days. They have nailed it in this much-anticipated release.
The fruit comes from their organically-managed Calgardup vineyard which sits just 2km from Redgate Beach in Margaret River. It's made with painstaking attention to detail: hand-sorting of individual berries, fermentation in oak and in the end, just four barrels produced.
It'a a distinctly savoury, umami style of Cabernet that will mature beautifully for many years to come.
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.
