Overview

The Swan Bay range continues the Scotchmans Hill wine-making philosophy of restraint, elegance, balance and purity. These wines take their name from the Swan Bay nature reserve. A beautiful landmark at the eastern end of the Bellarine Peninsula, Swan Bay was named by Commander Matthew Flinders in 1803 while he was mapping the southern coastline of Australia.

Expert Reviews

Glowing straw-yellow colour but lively on both the nose and in the mouth. Beautiful integration of oak and fruit. Cashew, lemon, melon and peach. Creamy texture. Its quality transcends fashion; it's neither modern nor old-fashioned, but it tastes delicious. Rating 92 - Drink by 2017 - CM, Wine Companion (FEB/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Nectarine and white peach with citrus fruits dominating the bouquet. This is complimented by creamy overtones, spice and cedar oak.

Palate

The palate provides up-front fruit flavours of nectarine, white peach, melon and lemon citrus; with a mineral edge throughout the palate. Creamy and nutty oak characters round out the wine, which has a long and lingering back palate.

Cellaring

This wine should be best enjoyed over the next 2 to 4 years.
