Between Five Bells Pinot Wine
BEST UK PRICE GUARANTEED!
Between Five Bells Pinot Wine - Whole bunches of Mariafeld clone Pinot Noir are carefully placed in a 5000lt cuve. A small amount of fermenting Pinot Meunier & Pinot Gris juice is introduced into the bottom of the tank. This allows the intact berries to be enveloped by CO2, allowing a true carbonic maceration. The sheer weight of the fruit above crushes the berries at the bottom allowing more sweet juice to join the ferment. This technique encourages the development of a beautiful silky mouth feel while maintaining vibrant fruity aromas.

"Mostly pinot noir but joining in are other pinots meunier and gris. From the creative set that is Between Five Bells. Spends time in a single 5000 litre oak barrel.
This is really good. What could be just a ‘great drinking red’, elevates on a web of tight and tense tannins, rises again on amaro-licked acidity, feels part cherry juice, part pomegranate juice and part blood orange juice, but all compact and sinewy and long. It’s really good drinking, sure, but also delivers a good dose of sophistication for those hoping to spend a little time with it.
