Origin: Tamar Valley
Style: Medium-bodied white wine aged in new French oak
Incredible zippy acidity with a bouquet of lemon curd, grapefruit combined with a hint of ripe pineapple, with a stony minerality and some attractive reductive aroma’s that is so typical for the region. Smooth and buttery on the mouthfeel like freshly baked bread. Remarkable freshness – and flavour. Complex flavours and touch of gun flint, grapefruit and succulent acid.
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.
