Swan Valley Skins 2021 Western Australia

$31.95

Swan Valley Skins 2021

One of the first orange wines made in the valley and still a benchmark. Based on estate grown Chenin blanc planted in the 1940s, the grapes are destemmed and macerated on skins in imported Georgian qvevri for up to 14 days. Maturation occurs in French oak barriques for six months, before bottling unfiltered and unfined. Aromatic, with cumquat, passionfruit and preserved lemon. Juicy, long and structured palate with peppery accents. – probably our best yet, dare we say.

Swan Valley Wines is a boutique winery, nestled in the foothills of the Darling Scarp in Western Australia. Our estate vineyard is one of the oldest producing vineyards in Western Australia and several of our varietals are amongst the oldest of their type in Australia.

Our manifesto:

PROTECT old vines and preserve the bio-cultural diversity and endemic grape varietals of the Swan Valley

PRESERVE the character of estate and local vineyards by practising organic viticulture and supporting local growers who choose to work this way

RESPECT the rules of nature and allow natural processes to occur in the winery, including use of indigenous yeasts, not blocking microbial activities and the use of low or no preservatives

RESIST trends. We make wines that reflect the conditions of vintage and above all represent styles that we like to drink.
