Between Five Bells Pinot Noir 2018

Between Five Bells are the last three words in the first stanza of Kenneth Slessor’s famous poem, Five Bells. The poem is understood to tell the tale of the death of Joe Lynch, a friend of the poets, and is set around Sydney Harbour. It's a poem about place and the spirit of place and central to the way the team think about the Between Five Bells (B5B) wines. To make the B5B Pinot Noir whole bunches, sourced from Jack & Lois Doeven in Drumborg, are carefully placed in a tall stainless steel tank. A small amount of fermenting Pinot Noir juice is introduced into the bottom of the tank. This allows the intact berries to be enveloped by CO2, allowing a true carbonic maceration. The sheer weight of the fruit above crushes the berries at the bottom allowing more sweet juice to join the ferment. This technique encourages the development of a beautiful silky mouth feel while maintaining vibrant fruity aromas and ultimate drinkability.

Roger Jones: "Very fine delicate perfumed nose, on the palate a superb berry explosion with restraint. Some savoury tannins at the end."

Justin Knock MW: "A hint of Vegemite, blue fruits, extremely creamy and fresh, really great length and power. More of a whole berry style but terrific length. Very good wine."

Anthony Rose: "Deep, dark ruby, seductive loganberry fruit nose. Dark berry and plum fruit on the palate, which is opulently fruity and supported by firm extracted tannins, a savoury quality and crisp acidity in an overall finely balanced package. Great ageing potential."
