Winery Tasting Notes
Black with deep, deep red rim.
Restrained on release, with deep red fruits, dusty cinnamon spice, licorice and earth. Underneath are subtle notes of smoky cedar and chocolate.
Tight and elegant from the start. Fine red fruits that gently roll through the palate, with earthy cedary notes. The fine tannins and acid support the mid to late palate and slowly all of the flavour and structure subsides evenly after a 60 second finish. The 2009 season was a glorious season and this Bella’s could be the best to date. Be patient.
Serve at room temperature to accompany fillet of beef with parmesan roasted potatoes and wilted greens.
Crushed and fermented in 5, 7 and 10 tonne open top fermenters with three regular pump overs during peak fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Ferments receive between 11 to 21 days maceration on skins, before the dry free run is drained to tank and the pressings combined. After 24 hours the wine is then racked to barrel. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. Minimal fining and unfiltered.
