#6 Top Wineries of Australia 2020 ~ The Real Review

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "The colour is pale, the bouquet intense and bright in flowery aromas without yeastiness, hints of frangipani, star jasmine and apple turnover, the palate likewise super-intense and nicely dry, with seamless acidity and a long carry. Lovely now, and great potential for ageing."

Wine Pilot, Ken Garget "A fine Frankland River Riesling. Handpicked from their blocks C and D of the estate's Powderbark vineyard, the fruit was gently whole bunch pressed with a natural fermentation, after which it spent time on lees for texture and complexity.This is very pale, just a hint of a dilute yellow hue. A focused and yet powerful style, with a minerally/chalky backing. Attractive citrus notes, most notably grapefruits and a touch of lime. Attractive florals. This is still very young and probably needs at least a decade to really hit its straps, when it should really blossom into something special. There is sappy acidity and a hint of a saline note all adding to the complexity on offer. A fine, tight, fresh Riesling with serious length. You'll surely enjoy it now, but even more so if you can give it time"

James Suckling "A tightly-wound wine that needs a moment for the nose to open up. Vibrant kumquat and mandarin orange aromas with a touch of basil. Sleek, crisp and focused with tons of stony energy driving the long, precise finish."

The Wine Front, Campbell Mattinson "Distinctive. Cooked apple, ginger, cider-like notes and then citrus. It’s not broad or even bodied but it has a spread to it, a settle. The flavours come as a sheet rather than as a dart. It works a treat. It’s a lovely wine to drink."

Waters Wine "Gosh, a real step up in intensity from the 2021. Very complex aromatics of salted citrus, lime peel, spring jasmine, grapefruit, orange blossom and spiced apple. Rich and concentrated, extremely powerful, super intense, salty, pithy, textural and precise. Compact and coiled in 2022, requiring a few years to unwind and flesh out. Promises to be very long lived, and one of the best ever released. "

Halliday Wine Companion, Erin Larkin "Hand-picked fruit from the Powderbark vineyard, whole-bunch pressed, wild ferment in stainless steel, then rested on lees prior to bottling. This is an incredibly structured and austere riesling, but that is what we know, love and expect from Frankland River; the wines live long, owing to the prodigious acidity. The pithy fruit unfurls and evolves over time. Pure, precise and focused. Cellar this for the medium term and drink the 2020 while you wait." (2021 vintage)

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "Very light, bright-yellow colour. The aroma is bright and clean, fresh and vibrant, fresh-cut flowers, while the palate is similarly bright and alive, intense and fresh, with pleasing dryness that leaves a clean, savoury aftertaste. Concentrated fruit evident. Good persistence, a slight grip aiding the cleansing properties. " (2021 vintage)

Halliday Wine Companion, Erin Larkin "Fruit from the Powderbark vineyard. Whole-bunch pressed, stainless-steel ferment, on lees for 4 months. This has all the austere acidity that makes Frankland River riesling what it is, but it comes with a plump fruit profile that gives it a richness and almost an opulence. Lychee, lime, green apple and talc. The acidity has a zing and a pop and finishes with a crunch of sea salt." (2020 vintage)

The Real Review, Huon Hooke "Pale green-yellow hue, the bouquet exceptionally fragrant, with high-toned citrus pith and citrus juice aromatics. A suggestion of gardenia. The wine is superbly intense and refined, mouth-watering acidity cleansing the finish beautifully. There is a faint trace of grip and the wine is remarkarbly juicy despite having no residual sugar. A beautiful young riesling with a bright future." (2019 vintage)

Young Gun of Wine, Australian Vineyard of The Year 2020 "The Swinney vineyard represents modern viticulture interwoven with Old-World techniques, executed with precision through a combination of exhaustive manual work and state-of-the-art technology, and all underpinned by an environmental focus...and the quality of the resulting wines, is truly extraordinary and inspiring.”

The Swinneys are a pair of brother-and-sister winemakers who are one of the rare new Australian wineries to have two of their wines invited onto the esteemed wine lists of The Ivy and Savoy Grill (Gordon Ramsay) restaurants in London. Swinney Vineyards made its debut in Halliday’s Australian Wine Companion 2015 with a five-star rating and were ranked in the top ten of best new wineries.

Frankland River is a key Australian wine sub-region the south of Western Australia. It is located just inland from the Southern Ocean coast, 115 miles east of Margaret River. Frankland River is the coldest wine region in continental Australia. Riesling is the area's specialty, with its crisp, fresh style standing out from the more diesel–kerosene notes found in the warmer regions further north.
