Region: South Australia
Style: Medium-bodied red wine aged in new French oak
A very typical entry-level Montepulciano. The wine is bright, balanced and crunchy with good freshness. With its high acidity and low tannins, the wine can remind some of Barbera – the flavors are slightly different, but the style is quite the same. Not really worth cellaring, but drinks very nicely with a wide variety of everyday dishes. A perfect little weekday wine.
Studying in Bordeaux and California, Sue Bell concentrates all her efforts on small parcels of fruit and produces wine in Tasmania, Coonawarra, Heathcote and Wrattonbully. With her academic background focused on agriculture, even though she buys all her fruit, she still has the advantage of advising her growers on how to improve production. Naturally, this Shiraz was planted on a perfect location, greatly benefiting from the rich terra rossa soils, formed through the transformation of limestone over thousands of years.
