About The Wine
This is a fascinating blend of varieties that you seldom see together.
It's an expression of a single organically-farmed vineyard behind Swan Valley. The fruit is hand picked and berry sorted so only the best fruit makes it into the ferment. It's then sent to a single French oak vat to ferment, mellow out and find synergy before being bottled.
It's a medium-weight, exotically scented red wine with ultra fine tannin and a high level of drinkability young.
For now or for the cellar, this is a great all-rounder that would match a million different dishes.
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.
