Corymbia is the deep-rooted, far-sighted vision of husband-and wife-team, Rob and Genevieve Mann. The Mann name is synonymous with Western Australia’s Swan Valley, where Rob’s pioneering grandfather Jack worked a remarkable 51 consecutive vintages for Houghton. Rob was just a boy when he joined his father - former Australian test cricketer Tony - in planting the vines on what is now the dry-grown, organically farmed Corymbia vineyard.
Rob was one of the crop of hotshots at Hardys during the reign of Stephen Pannell, before he took the mantle of senior winemaker himself at Hardys Tintara. From there he established a name for himself as one of the great talents of his generation during his time at the helm of Cape Mentelle. Genevieve, meanwhile, worked in South Africa, France, California and South Australia prior to moving to Margaret River in 2007 in the role of winemaker for Howard Park. The two of them kicked off their homecoming dream, Corymbia, with the 2013 vintage, during Rob’s tenure as estate director at Newton Vineyards in Napa Valley.

Now firmly ensconced back in the Swan Valley, Rob and Gen’s Chenin Blanc and Tempranillo-dominant red blend were the start of the story and sit at the heart of the story. But in 2019 they added a dazzlingly pure, elegant singlevineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaret River. With typical pluck and nous, the Manns have revitalised with acute attention to detail the Calgardup Vineyard, just 2km inland from the famous Redgate Beach. The result is a crystal-clear signal of the bright future that lies ahead for this brilliant duo.

Tasting Note: (From the producer)
Our organically farmed grapes were harvested by hand and whole bunch pressed. The juice was fermented with indigenous yeasts in a stainless-steel tank and seasoned French oak barriques. The wine was then left on its yeast lees through winter and then bottled just in time for spring. The wine smells of jasmine blossom, ruby grapefruit and freshly picked red Johnathon apples straight from the tree. Packham pears, Kumamoto oysters and beeswax fill the palate but it’s 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 Rocket’s Vineyard pedigree. Classic Rocket’s Vineyard Chenin Blanc at its best.

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with High acidity and Low (Phenolics) tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium finish.
