About

When establishing the Bellvale vineyard in 1998, John Ellis took his inspiration from the legendary vineyards of Burgundy. The vines that populate his vineyard (mostly Pinot Noir) are planted very close together and grown without irrigation to force the vines to fight for every ounce of nutrient. John believes this makes a more characterful wine - more stress adding more nuance and individual character to the finished product. The 2015 release of his estate Pinot Noir is a lovely release. It shows plenty of young berried fruit with enough undergrowth and savoury character to give it an edge. The 91 points from Gary Walsh confirming this as a top vintage for this wine and a bargain Pinot Noir from the Gippsland region.

What it Tastes Like

"Sappy, spicy and bursting with bright red cherry flavour. Light to medium bodied, fine grained ‘graphite’ tannin, has a kind or pomegranate tang and flavour too, and slightly bitter herbal finish of good length." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
