Description

Bellwether is the brainchild of Sue Bell, based in the 1868 Glen Roy Shearing Shed in Coonawarra. Sue makes wines in Coonawarra as well as other regions of Australia, including as far afield as Tasmania. Her selection of fruit is classics from cool climates but also playing with Mediterranean varieties suited to dry
climates. Climate change underlies every decision in winemaking for Bellwether wines, from appropriate varietal/region matches to sustainable winemaking. Texture and complexity intrigue Sue and are hallmarks of how her wines are made – 100% indigenous yeast and gently handled.

TASTING NOTES

Textbook notes of red earth, black fruit and mint. It also develops some secondary notes: autumn leaves, dark chocolate and black olives, with an almost figgy note. The palate is as the nose, with a hint of cigar box and a very long finish. This is a wine that captivates and delights

FOOD PAIRING

Steak and lamb – barbecued of course!
