About The Wine
Dr Ray Nadeson is your classic 'mad scientist' in the wine world. An academic and scientific background sits behind a seemingly endless creative streak in his winemaking. Each vintage there's new projects brought to bottle. Here's his latest instalment.
The B5B Amber is a bottling from a single 800L terracotta amphora. More than half the wine is made up of Pinot Gris that sat on skins inside the earthen vessel for 150 days before it was joined by a wild motley crew of white varieties bringing different colours and detail to the party.
Unsurprisingly, Ray's first crack at an amber wine is a massive success. Spicy, grippy and a little bit wild, this is a great example of Australian amber winemaking.
