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. Around half the wine is made up of Pinot Gris that sat on skins inside the earthen vessel for 45 days before it was joined by a wild motley crew of white varieties bringing different colours and detail to the party.
Unsurprisingly, Ray's second 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.
About Between Five Bells
More than just a wine label, Between Five Bells is an amalgamation of philosophy, art and skill.
Conceived (as so many genius ideas are) after one (or several) too many wines with his friend Josh, David Fesq approached Ray Nadeson, the impossibly talented owner/winemaker of Lethbridge wines, with the concept of creating a range that put "drinkability first, and varieties, marketing and expectations second."
And so, B5B was born. These wines throw out the rulebook. The blends are unconventional, the winemaking is experimental, the juice at the end is simply delicious.
