Bellvale Estate Pinot Noir
This classically styled Pinot Noir shows upfront raspberry and wild strawberry notes with complex, savoury spices such as clove and anise. Well-proportioned oak frames the background of dense, dark plums, briar and blackberry fruit. The palate is full and balanced with plenty of polished tannin and an excellent upright structure carrying a dense core of powerful fruit.
The cool Gippsland climate is easily one of Australia’s best Pinot Noir producing regions and with pilot turned winemaker John Ellis at the helm, his Pinot soars to new heights. A seductive bright ruby glow helps paint the picture of what’s inside the bottle, with aromas of raspberries, wild strawberries and orange peel giving way to a complex bouquet showing damp earth, cedar and notes of subtle, spicy oak. A slice of Burgundian brilliance in our own backyard.
