Corymbia Chenin Blanc
"2022 Corymbia Rocket's Vineyard Chenin Blanc is named in tribute to Rob's late father and former Australian Test Cricketer Tony "Rocket" Mann. Tony and Rob planted Rocket's Vineyard together on their family property in the Swan Valley more than 35 years ago, on what was an old currant vineyard. The fruit is dry grown and organically farmed. In July 2022 we proudly achieved Òcertified organicÓ status with ACO Certification Ltd. 100% Chenin Blanc (Noack massal selection planted in 1992) grown on soils of Houghton loam. The grapes were harvested by hand on 2nd February 2022 and whole bunch-pressed prior to natural fermentation. A portion was fermented and matured in seasoned French oak barriques for five months prior to blending and bottling."
"The wine smells of jasmine blossom, ruby grapefruit and freshly picked red Johnathan apples straight from the tree. Packham pears, Kumamoto oysters and beeswax fill the palate but itÕs the texture that grabs your full attention. The balance at play between the juicy, saline tang and the soft, creamy, flinty notes drives home the RocketÕs Vineyard pedigree. Classic RocketÕs Vineyard Chenin Blanc at its best." - Rob and Gen Mann
