2018 Between Five Bells Pinot Noir
|Producer||Between Five Bells|
Between Five Bells is a collective. Ray is the proprietor, viticulturist and winemaker for the wonderful Lethbridge Wines, David works in the family wine-distribution firm, (as the sixth generation) and Josh is a highly regarded sommelier in Sydney. These wines throw out the rulebook. The blends are unconventional, the winemaking is experimental, the juice at the end is simply delicious.
This year’s Pinot Noir is sourced from Jack & Lois Doeven in Drumborg, Henty. 100% Mariafeld clone lends itself to the carbonic maceration offering bright cherries, intense perfume and ultimate drinkability.
Made at Lethbridge Wines, Geelong
|Wine||98 points, Decanter Panel Tasting|
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.
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.
