Established in 1998, Bellvale Wine is a family-owned business run by principal winemaker and viticulturist, John Ellis. Situated in the lush Tarwin River Valley of South Gippsland, the area is acknowledged as one of Australia’s leading Pinot Noir regions. The Bellvale label features two majestic oak trees that grace the centre of its vineyard. John aims to produce wines of the quality and integrity of the premium producers of the Burgundy region.
This classically styled 2019 Bellvale Estate 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 vines for this Gippsland Pinot Noir are planted at 7100 vines per hectare. This is $25 well spent. I mean, really. It’s not a profound wine but it’s so inherently complex and just so good to drink. It’s not a hearty Pinot Noir but it’s a Pinot Noir with heart. Undergrowth, characteristically so. Fresh cherries. Sweet spices. It’s frisky more than it is tangy. It will obviously develop further from here but drink this now and you’re winning. 92 Points Tasted: Jun20 13.8% alc. $25 Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2025+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
