Corymbia Wines Chenin Blanc (6 Bottles) Swan Bay, 95 Points

by Wines By Cellars 0 orders



It’s gently spiced with pepper and cinnamon quills. It’s floral with some fresh herbs, poached apple, bees wax and refreshing lemon barley water flavours. The palate is altogether racier, almost riesling-like acidity keeping this long and pure with the right amount of phenolics adding that extra layer.
95 points. Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2021

Our second release of our Rocket’s Vineyard Chenin Blanc. We’re a little excited to welcome this wine again to our family. Rob and his father, former Australian Test Cricketer Tony “Rocket” Mann, planted the Chenin Blanc vines together on their family property more than 25 years ago. We have put in the hard work in the vineyard, transitioning to organic farming with acute attention to detail, to ensure we continue the Mann family tradition of creating remarkable wines with a unique sense of place.

The grapes for 2019 Corymbia Chenin Blanc were harvested by hand over two days and whole bunch pressed prior to natural fermentation. A portion was matured in seasoned French oak barriques for seven months prior to blending and bottling. The wine shows distinctive characters of lemon pith, blackcurrant leaf, fresh crunchy pear with a textural, vibrant and typically saline finish. It’s so salivating, it’s the perfect drink for every occasion. – Rob & Gen Mann



“Winemaking is an entirely natural process and no person has the right to assume the title winemaker. Nature is the winemaker and man—if he is skilled—gives nature the opportunity to perform to it’s best advantage. That is the art of winemaking.” Jack Mann

It’s our drink of choice and its legacy has been passed down to us, Robert and Genevieve Mann. We’re husband and wife, heads and hearts of Corymbia, and part of one of the oldest and most influential families in the winemaking industry.

We’re influenced by our line of winemakers, vignerons, designers, and drinkers, and we remember our roots; that we’re a family first.
