The Swift 2013 Vintage was awarded Best Sparkling in NSW in 2021, Best Sparkling at the Royale Adelaide Wine Show 2021 and gold medal at the Australian Sparkling awards. The 2014 Vintage is another stellar vintage with extended yeast lees ageing. The combination of a citrus backbone and red fruited mid-palate produces a lovely fruit profile. Add in the 6 years of lees ageing in bottle to build flavour and textural complexity and a touch of aldehyde to really lift the aromatics and you can see why we get excited about this wine.

After 7 years of lees ageing this wine has developed wonderful complexity. Now that it has been disgorged it will continue develop but down a different road – more along the lines of typical bottle maturation. It should drink well as it evolves over the next 5 years.
