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. The grapes were harvested by hand and whole bunch-pressed prior to natural fermentation. A portion was fermented and matured in seasoned French oak barriques for seven months prior to blending and bottling. The wine smells of lemon pith and nashi pear with a lick of carbide. The palate is lively with a briny spine, great clarity and stacks of flavour.

Fruit from Rocket's vineyard. This is pure, pristine, texturally edgy, and layered with all the good things: sheepy lanolin, beeswax, apricots at the height of summer, green apple, crushed limestone and saline acidity. It has rivulets of flavour that course over the tongue ... it's brilliant. Finesse and poise from such a warm part of town, very impressive.

(2019 vintage) Corymbia Chenin will be The Next Big Thing. From Rocket’s Vineyard (the Mann family’s site) out back of Swan Valley, kind of. Tightly wound in youth, you have to give these wines some time. Indeed, the asset here is Hunter Valley Semillon-esque, or Tahbilk Marsanne-esque. Time. Patience. Reward. Even drinking in youth it needs a year. Whole bunch pressed, natural ferment, time on lees. Precise and racy style, kept in check with limey acidity and chalky phenolic grip. Actually, so much grip, rivulets of talc-and-salt-like pucker and chew. Serious structure and finesse in tow. Lime, tonic water, mixed minerals. Whoosh. Belter of a wine.
