Bellbrae Estate Longboard Pinot Noir
A soft elegant palate combined with weight and depth. Soft and full red fruits abound – think strawberries, mulberries and raspberries. Luscious mid-palate with lashings of fruit and elegant, soft tannins. 94 points – James Halliday
Bellbrae Estate Winery was established in 1999 on a beautiful section of rolling hills, five minutes from world famous Bells Beach, in the Surf Coast region of Victoria.
Originally planted to grapes around 150 years ago by Swiss settlers, at one stage the area from Bellbrae to Geelong and beyond was one of Australia’s largest wine growing regions. For most of the 20th century, however, the land had reverted to grazing but the wonderful climate and the enticing north facing slopes led us to plant the first vineyards here for over 100 years – better late than never!
