What’s in a name? Swings & Roundabouts reflects the unending tension between art and science in winemaking and the openness and flexibility required to get the best out of both. The Backyard Stories range is the winery’s premium offering, showcasing traditional winemaking techniques and the very best fruit in classically elegant Margaret River wines.
The man behind the wines is Brian Fletcher. A Margaret River veteran with almost 40 years’ winemaking experience, Brian is well known to Society members for his Rosabrook Winemaker’s Reserve Cabernet Merlot 2013 – our 2015 Best in Society Autumn Red. This pair of stunning wines under the Swings & Roundabouts label is sure to add to his status as one of the region’s top winemakers.

Lifted pear and jasmine aromas on the nose, lead onto a palate the explodes with flavour. Pure pear, apple and citrus characters is supported by a lovely line of crisp acidity. A fantastic wine full freshness and zing.
Item Code: ITM7564
A fine and pure aroma with cashew nut and Chardonnay fruit complemented by integrated high quality French oak that continues onto a palate that shows real persistence. Delicious now but will develop further complexity with careful cellaring.
Item Code: ITM7611
Medium bodied and tightly wound with fine layers of oak overlaying dark and ripe Cabernet fruits. It is clearly varietal with finely polished, persistent tannins and savoury fruit sweetness on the finish. A classical Margaret River Cabernet that will reward cellaring.
