Overview

This is an excellent example of the style of Northern Margaret River Shiraz. Medium bodied, with very attractive spice and dark pepper fruit flavours, it has a rich palate and balanced tannin persistence. Fine and warm vintage conditions prevailed – ideal for this variety in the region.

Expert Reviews

Vivid purple-red; Margaret River had yet another top-class vintage in stark contrast to the problems of the rain sodden eastern mainland; no surprise then to find a fragrant and juicy mix of red cherry, spice, liquorice and pepper; there is a hint of oak (American) and fine, silky tannins on the finish. Top Value.

Rating 93 - James Halliady, Australian Wine Companion Magazine APR/MAY 2013

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Very deep crimson red - purple with a dark core

Aroma

Rich lifted aromas of spice and dark fruits with some fine American oak. Some earthiness and complexity, this is a dark and expressive wine.

Palate

Rich and layered fruit, fine tannins that go right across the palate and are backed up by concentrated dark and juicy fruit flavours. The underlying tannins are ripe and supple. Will age.

Food Matching

Wagyu beef or game meats.

Cellaring

Five years with ease.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Swings & Roundabouts is based in the northern end of the Margaret River wine region. Sourcing premium fruit from our own, shareholders and contract grower’s vineyards, we produce pure Margaret River styles and Western Australian blends.

Our strong belief is in the northern Margaret River fruit that can deliver "Mediterranean" style wines that are great for drinking…with or without food. The moderating effects of the temperate maritime climate combined with unique soils and wet and cold winters, provide ideal growing conditions for wine grapes that are both elegant and robust.

Our team are well credentialed, serious winemaking chaps who have according to writer Ray Jordan won a “staggering list of awards”. But while stern faced about the wine itself, the rest is pretty relaxed. Margaret River is a cool and casual place to hang out so you’ll find the personalities here very friendly and far from intimidating.

Using skilled winemaking and by carefully selecting fruit, Swings & Roundabouts is able to deliver consistent value for money premium wines. What is in the bottle must exceed expectations every time. It’s classic Margaret River...fresh, creative, friendly and loads of backyard fun!
