Swings Roundabouts Chardonnay
Margaret River
Available by the dozen
Swings & Roundabouts retain access to some of Western Australia's best vineyards. Their rounder and more deliberate style of Chardonnay targets fresh drinking rather than oak overkill. The pick of Margaret River's fruit is vinified into a finely honed Chardonnay wine with effusive stonefruit/ apple characters and brisk vegetative acidity, made even more attractive by a course of luxurious barrel ferments, adding texture and infusing the wine with warming vanilla spice. A treat alongside prawns or chicken caesar, Swings & Roundabouts is an easy to appreciate aperitif style.

A collation of fruit from the estate's Swings vineyard alongside parcels from some of the most ardent growers, vinified and augmented by ageing in a third of French oak to complement it's creamy palate, loads of fresh fruit fragrance and regional Chardonnay characters. Having earned a reputation as one of West Australia's leading winemakers, based around a young and enthusiastic team, Swings & Roundabouts are accomplished at crafting the vigorous Margaret River styles. Picked throughout the cool of night, grapes are cold pressed and clear juice fermented to natural yeasts. Half of the wine is treated to oak barrel and matured several months under the estate cellars. Alcohol 13.0%
 
Pale green to light luminous straw hues. Lifted attractive melon fruits on the bouquet with hints of lifted nectarine, subtle vanillin oak in the background adds complexity and depth to the overall impression. Fruit filled, dry and medium bodied to taste, freshly cut orchard fruit and melon flavours lead to a generous and creamy middle palate, textured, structured and fine, resolving on a persistent, clean and lingering finish.
Swings Roundabouts Cabernet Merlot
Margaret River
Available by the dozen
The stylish Margaret River accord of Cabernet and Merlot, with a timely inclusion of the rakish Petit Verdot. The Swings & Roundabouts team purposely leave the fruit to ripen on the vine for the longest time allowed by nature, encouraging the development of fully developed tannins and sugars alongside heightened varietal characters. They then have to fight with the kangaroos over possession of these deeply flavoured grapes. A vigorous red wine to match aged cheddars, stronger cuts of meat or well prepared game.

Swings & Roundabouts is based at Yallingup where it crafts pure Margaret River wines and smart West Australian blends. Widely acknowledged as one of the region's leading winemakers, Mark Lane found his way home in rather a roundabout way. For a while he made cheese in Melbourne and completed apprenticeships in the Yarra Valley with the likes of Tarrawarra and Eyton-on-Yarra before making the trek west to take up position of chief winemaker with Deep Woods and Flying Fish Cove. Parcels of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are harvested at optimum maturity, each parcel is separately handled and fermented, followed by a term of maturation in French oak.
 
Deep purple red with a dark core. Ripe plums with cherry and mocha notes over fine vanillin French oak. Dark fruits with classical Margaret River Cabernet varietal, choc mint characters lifting the nose. The cherry characters carry through to the palate, dark berry fruits are present, Rich and layered palate with generous flavours of plum and spice leading to a fine mouthfilling middle palate exhibiting fine grained tannins to finish.
Swings Roundabouts Semillon Sauvignon
Margaret River
Available by the dozen
Year in and year out, Swings & Roundabouts vinify parcels of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc to define the archetypal Margaret River white. With good reason. Swings & Roundabouts have the right vines, producing the finest example of each grape, achieving remarkable balance within the finished wine. A classically dry Margaret River, completely unwooded and unoaked, fruit driven, vibrant and fresh. The cut of mouth watering tropical flavours charm the palate, seasoned by the savouryness of chinese rice wine characters, lemongrass and green vegetal.

Mark Lane found his way to Margaret River in a roundabout way. For a while he made cheese and wine in Victoria with the likes of Tarrawarra and Eyton-on-Yarra before taking the trek west to take up position as chief winemaker with Deep Woods and Flying Fish Cove. Having earned a reputation as one of Margaret River's most talented winemakers, Lane pulled together a young and enthusiastic team to establish Swings & Roundabouts. Drawing the highest quality Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon from estate vineyards, the fruit is gently processed to achieve maximum flavour profiles and aromaticness. Early bottling is a key element to ensuring that the wine retains freshness and vivacity.
 
Pale green hue. Lifted fresh crystalline sharp fruit that's perfectly clean, succulent Sauvignon Blanc freshness with a dry Semillon background. Flint dry but with an explosive first impact of sweet racy fruit, the palate is medium to light bodied, slatey savouryness and a quenching minerality, it's a wine in fine form, long, perfectly fruit driven and dry, with a fine clean finish and crisp acidity. Match Swings & Roundabouts with fresh fried fish, Milano style.
Swings & Roundabouts is based in the Margaret River region, the cellar door and home vineyard is at 2807 Caves Rd, Yallingup

The estate produces pure Margaret River styles and West Australian blends from the Swings vineyard and local shareholder and contract growers. The strong belief is in the northern Margaret River fruit that can develop wines with elegant Mediterranean structure for great drinking, with or without food.

Mark Lane runs the show. He found his way to Margaret River in a roundabout way. For a while he made cheese in Melbourne. No doubt interesting, but why would you do that if you can do this! He gained winemaking apprenticeships in the Yarra Valley with the likes of Tarrawarra and Eyton-on-Yarra before making the trek west to take up the position of Chief Winemaker with Deep Woods and then Flying Fish Cove wines.

Mark Lane and the team are well credentialed, serious winemaking chaps who have, according to wine reviewer Ray Jordan won a “staggering list of awards”. But while stern faced about the wine itself, the rest is pretty relaxed. Margaret River is a cool and casual place to hang out so you’ll find the personalities here very friendly and far from intimidating.

Having developed a reputation as one of Margaret River’s leading winemakers, Mark has pulled together a young and enthusiastic team to establish Swings & Roundabouts…all keen to make a difference. He balances life by cooking, taking his teenage daughter to local concerts and driving fast cars fast. He enjoys a complete lack of interest in football (astonishing for a Victorian!) and music makes him happy (so the t-shirt says).

The estate's winemaking operation is also home, and it's been equipped with all that is important to the winemakers. A wood fire pizza oven, a serious coffee machine, lots of comfy leather sofas…and of course the wines. The vine-shaded verandah helps escape those hot summer days, with view over rolling hills, vines and kangaroos.
