    Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak of little places, husbanded to artisanal winemaking practices, the most wonderful expressions of Mornington...

    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.
