Drinking & making wine with both Rob and Gen, it was clear that combined they have wine minds that will yield expressive beautiful wines for many years to come!


Vibrant juicy fruit comes to the fore. The cool year offers a sense of elegance. Savoury with a little spice, it’s playful with supple texture and excellent length. The blend works beautifully, there’s a lovely harmony to this wine.

The label represents the blossom of the Marri tree. Look closer and you’ll see it maps the weather pattern for the year with temperature, rainfall and harvest date expressed through each line.

Full disclosure I worked with both Rob and Genevieve back in the day! We knocked out an intense vintage lasting 4 months at over 100 hours a week together at Tintara in McLaren Vale. Drinking & making wine with them both it was clear that combined they have wine minds that will  yield expressive beautiful wines for many years to come. I had a little inside knowledge shared around coming projects, they will be ones to watch!

The Corymbia Red is a field blend of 69% Tempranillo, 19% Malbec and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. Tempranillo makes a lot of sense in the Swan. Its ability to hold natural acid helping with the wine’s balance.

About Corymbia

Corymbia is the deep-rooted, far-sighted vision of husband-and wife-team, Rob and Genevieve Mann. The Mann name is synonymous with Western Australia’s Swan Valley, where Rob’s pioneering grandfather Jack worked a remarkable 51 consecutive vintages for Houghton. Rob was just a boy when he joined his father – former Australian test cricketer Tony – in planting the vines on what is now the dry-grown, organically farmed Corymbia vineyard.

Rob was one of the crop of hotshots at Hardys during the reign of Stephen Pannell, before Rob himself took the mantle of senior winemaker at Hardys Tintara. From there he established a name for himself as one of the great talents of his generation during his time at the helm of Cape Mentelle. Genevieve, meanwhile, worked in South Africa, France, California and South Australia prior to moving to Margaret River in 2007 in the role of winemaker for Howard Park.

The two of them kicked off their homecoming dream, Corymbia, with the 2013 vintage, during Rob’s tenure as estate director at Newton Vineyards in Napa Valley. Now firmly ensconced back in the Swan Valley, Rob and Gen’s Chenin Blanc and Tempranillo-dominant red blend sit at the heart of a bright future for this brilliant duo.

Where in the World is Corymbia?

The Swan Valley lies Just north of Perth in Western Australia. To give you an idea of scale it’s 418 kilometres from Perth to Denmark on the south coast roughly in the middle of the Great Southern wine region!

94 Points

Swan Valley vs Spain here, and a damned tasty thing it is too. I’m thinking plum and dark cherries, spice, subtle vanilla perfume, coffee beans and earth. Medium-bodied, wide-grained ripe but sandy skinsy tannin, fleshy mid-palate action, even acidity, cola nut, more to red fruits to taste, grip and savoury appeal on a solid finish. I seem to be stuck on 93 points (a good score!) for this wine, yet I’m tempted to push it up a little this year. Anyway, it’s well worth seeking out.
