Fourth Generation Swinneys, siblings Matt and Janelle, grew up working alongside their parents and grandparents on the family farm at Franklands, gaining a deep respect for family, farming and the region. Growing and making is a way of life for the Swinney family, so it’s no surprise that even when they ventured further afield to other parts of the world for their respective careers, this special place was always going to draw them back. Today, Matt and Janelle have assembled a  uniquely skilled team and are focussed on producing wines that reflect their home and which, ultimately, redefine what is possible from the Frankland River region.  

Fruit is hand-picked from dry-grown, established bush vines on tje Swinney Wilson’s Pool vineyard. Each vine is picked over three passes with less than perfect fruit declassified. 

It takes on earthy, savouriness with aplomb, amongst that sour plum, black cherry juice, blood orange and iodine/graphite mineral qualities. Tannins start soft and build to an authority, a trim, succulent, medium weight wine in total cruise control with all elements balanced and a general sense of deliciousness in tow. That texture is superb. Moreish, gulpable but serious red wine. It’s fragrant, flavoursome, complex, interesting and down right awesome to sip on. You feel the goodness at hello. An inkier expression but righteous. - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, 95 Points
