1 - 3 of 3 Wines By Bellarmine
1
Bellarmine Chardonnay
Pemberton
Available by the dozen
Bellarmine jugs were used throughout the middle ages to carry wine from oak cask to table. The Bellarmine property at Pemberton was planted entirely by hand, vines were trained from ground up, to expose the ripening grapes to optimal sunshine. The terroirs and clime here are a Chardonnay maker's dream come true. Soils are red gravel laterite, offering excellent drainage while providing warmth to the vine root systems at night, courtesy of heat that the gravels have absorbed during the day. A lightly oaked wine, highly evocative of the dry and fruity Chablis style.

Chardonnay is sourced exclusively from Bellarmine vineyard in the high quality cool climate region of Pemberton. Fruit is harvested throughout the cool of night. Juices are gently pressed off skins and separated from the harder solids. Juices are cold settled for two days, the clear juices are racked away from lees and innoculated. A portion is transferred to oak for vinification, the balance remains in tank. Ferments are temperature controlled to achieve a gradual drop in sugar levels whilst retaining maximum flavour. Upon completion, the wines are battonaged to infuse complexity and introduce a touch of creaminess, followed by a term of maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barrels.
 
Pale yellow hues. Stonefruits and nectarine, citrus with subtle oak. Complex palate with citrus, green apple, and nectarine flavours. Subtle spicy oak, tight acidity and a creamy texture, supported by crisp minerality, extended palate length and persistence of flavour. Enjoy with crispy skin roast chicken, crackling pork or fine wet cheese.
Bellarmine Half Dry Riesling
Pemberton

Bellarmine are expert at Riesling and famously produce three different interpretations, each with its own story and appeal. One of very few vineyards in Pemberton to grow Riesling, no doubt indulging the German ancestry of proprietors Dr Willi and Gudrun Schumacher.

Vineyard soils are red gravel laterite and vines are trained to vertical shoot positioning. Grapes are harvested in the cool of the night at optimum flavour levels. Vinified from the first free run juices taken after the initial crush and from the light pressing of skins. The latter component contributes greater depth of ripe flavours which suit the slightly sweeter style. Vinified in fermenters at cool temperatures, oak is avoided and the natural expression of fruit is optimised. A sudden chill to arrest ferments is timed when there's a single baume of sugar remaining. This stops the yeast cells and achieves a slightly sweeter palate so very appealing to enthusiasts of complex and engaging Riesling wines.
 
Pale straw hue. White flowers, limes and spice on the bouquet, aromatic and crisp, a fully elegant Riesling wine. A clean, perfectly balanced palate, full of citrus and floral flavours supported by minerality, splendid length of flavour before a crisp, clean finish. Enjoy this captivating style alongside moreton bay bugs or WA marron, dressed in wine and mornay sauce.

Harvested at optimum flavour levels when the tannins are ripe and the seeds are brown, determined by the winemaker taking regular samples in the vineyard. Fruit is managed carefully to ensure a maximum yield of five tonnes per hectare, to achieve even ripeness and maximum quality potential. Crushed and destemmed gently to allow some whole berries through into the ferment, the must is inoculated with a neutral yeast. Once the cap of skins has risen, the juice is pumped over the skins twice daily so that colour and flavour is extracted from the skins as the ferment cools. Once complete, the wine is racked and seeded with malolactic bacteria. Matured fourteen months in extravagantly new French oak barriques.
 
Deep purple red. Rich ripe aromas of mulberry and chocolate with spicy oak and plum fruit characters. Rich and savoury plum and berry fruit on the palate are supported by fine tannins. In the Rhone style, a rich yet elegant, cool climate dry red Shiraz. In Rhone fashion, elegant yet rich, cool climate dry red style, a match to entrecote or fillet du porc.
