 2006 Bellwether Coonawarra Cabernet
A moderate year with no rush to pick fruit due to weather, a classic in aromatics and structure - ageing gracefully. Sourced and made by Sue Bell while working for the Hardy wine company at Stonehaven.

2008 Bellwether Coonawarra Cabernet
A moderate season with a warm finish, picking was prompt to say the least! Rich, milk chocolate in a good space at the moment, but could cellar longer.  Sourced and made by Sue Bell while working for the Hardy Wine Company at Stonehaven

2009 Bellwether Coonawarra Cabernet
Our first vintage from Mike & Brent Wetherall's vineyard.  A later year than previous seasons, cool - moderate with a burst of Jan heat, a tight and remarkably fresh wine, ageing very slowly. 

2010 Bellwether Coonawarra Cabernet
this was as typical as any year gets in Coonawarra, and really signified the end of a 10 year dry period with good winter rain but perfect dry growing season. Supple tannins, fragrant yet earthy, will age longer but a lovely wine now. 


2013 Bellwether Coonawarra Cabernet
A warm dry summer and cool autumn.  Bigger yields were set due to great flowering conditions, we crop thinned early and picked early with beautiful colour and tannin ripeness. Perfumed and polished will last for many years yet.

2014 Bellwether Coonawarra Cabernet
A very wet winter and prolonged flowering saw a longer later vintage of low yields. Ferments were left on skins for longer to complete the tannin polymerisation and structure.  A young yet very complex wine.
