Description

  • French oak
  • Ripe plum
  • Sweet spice
  • Soft tannins

A seductive nose is inviting and ripely fruited, all bright red-berried fruit, plums and sweet spice with a hint of toasty oak. The palate is medium bodied and approachable with dark berry and cassis flavours underpinned by soft tannins.

The moderate, dry climate with very low rainfall during autumn and fertile soils is perfect suited to Organic Viticulture. The well established vines (up to thirty years of age) are planted widely apart for airflow to minimise disease pressure and minimal drip irrigation ensures low yielding fruit with rich flavours and varietal expressivenes.

2020 had its challenges with a dry start and only a small portion of rain and with much of the country suffering drought conditions. The warm dry spell continued in December with some extreme hot temperature days recorded. It was a late ripening year and yields were down but despite the challenges it was another excellent vintage across South Australia.

Fully de-stemmed before fermentation in a mix of open and closed tanks. The wine was primarily vinified without the influence of oak for maximum fruit expression before blending with a component aged in three and four year old French oak.

Bumblebee encapsulates all that a healthy partnership with the environment can be – a harmony with nature through organic, sustainable and vegan friendly practices that allow all to flourish – the vines, the plants and the animals. The Bumblebee wines have been created by Con-Greg Grigoriou and Corey Ryan to be classically and varietally expressive styles that are approachable and well balanced.

Food Pairing: Pair with chargrilled lamb chops.
