About The Wine

Sue Bellwether is one of Coonawarra's most exciting new producers.

She is taking a fresh look at one of the country's most traditional winemaking scenes and making some cracking wines while she's at it. This is her take on the famous Coonawarra Cabernet.

Whilst not trying to re-invent the wheel, Sue handcrafts this wine every step of the way. From hand-picking to the slow, delicate basket pressing, this is designed as a pure, expressive example of one of Australia's most iconic wine styles. Released with a little extra time in bottle, the 2013 is only just starting to show its best but will develop wonderfully over time if you have the patience.

About Bellwether

Bellwether is the creation of Sue Bell - a woman regarded as one of the country's most talented (and hard-working) winemakers.

Based in Coonawarra where she now works out of an iconic old shearing shed, Sue works with a range of growers and vineyards around South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania to put together her unique range of wines.

All are made very much by hand, with minimal intervention in the winery and a focus on capturing the essence of each variety, site and season.

Wonderful wines well worth getting to know!

Critic Reviews

DDS review

This is quintessential Coonawarra Cabernet. Notes of black olive, earth, blackcurrant and a twist of muddled mint. So long and finely structured. It feels powerful yet graceful. The oak sits perfectly in the frame. All in all, just a stunning snapshot of what Coonawarra is capable of. - Different Drop Wine Team
