Between Five Bells Pinot Noir 2018
Whole bunches are carefully placed in a tall stainless steel tank...by hand. Winemaker Ray Nadeson doesn't want to damage any berries in this process so he straps on the climbing gear and ropes and hand places the bunches up the length of the tank. The idea behind his method is to allow the natural sheer weight of the fruit above to press the berries below. A small amount of fermenting Pinot Noir juice is introduced to the bottom of the tank, allowing the intact berries to be enveloped in CO2, creating a true carbonic maceration. As the fruit presses down more sweet juice joins the ferment. In the end this process encourages the development of a beautiful, silky mouth feel while maintaining vibrant fruity aromas.

Decanter – 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, extremly creamy and fresh, really great length and power. More of a whole berry style but terrific length. Very good wine.
In a mixed or straight case: $33.24
