Between Five Bells Pinot Wine 2019

The Review: 92 points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
"Mostly pinot noir but joining in are other pinots meunier and
gris. From the creative set that is Between Five Bells. Spends time
in a single 5000 litre oak barrel.
This is really good. What could be just a ‘great drinking red’,
elevates on a web of tight and tense tannins, rises again on
amaro-licked acidity, feels part cherry juice, part pomegranate
juice and part blood orange juice, but all compact and sinewy and
long. It’s really good drinking, sure, but also delivers a good dose
of sophistication for those hoping to spend a little time with it."

Between Five Bells Pinot Wine 2019

About B5B: 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 on/in/around (it gets confusing)
Sydney Harbour. A beautiful lyrical poem, well worth a read and
central to the way we think about the B5B wines.
The Wine: Whole bunches of Mariafeld clone Pinot Noir are
carefully placed in a 5000lt cuve. A small amount of fermenting
Pinot Meunier & Pinot Gris 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.
