About the Wine

Tasmania has repeatedly proven itself to be the premier sparkling region of Australia. Sometimes, all it takes is the right winemaker to emphasise just how spectacular it can be. Natalie Fryar is the right winemaker. With fruit sources around the state, mostly in the north, she is able to craft breathtaking wines from all corners of the island.

The Bis NV is a pale Rose made entirely from Pinot Noir made in the methode traditionelle style, with up to two years on lees for added complexity. It opens up beautifully, with toasted brioche and under ripe strawberries on the nose, with a complex palate of toasted brioche, cream, cranberries and rose petals. Elegant, refined, and pure.

About Bellebonne

Beautiful and good (Belle et Bonne in French), just like Tasmania, is the passion project of Natalie Fryar, who established herself as one of Australias leading makers of sparkling wines over her 14 years at Jansz.

Produced in miniscule quantities with fruit from the Pipers River region, Bellebonne cuvées are made from tiny pockets of independent growers’ vines.

This region is ideal for sparkling, in Natalie’s own words; “Our latitude is critical. We are right in the sweet spot geographically for the perfect combination of terroir... The island’s maritime climate provides a frost free environment, there's the long, cool, even growing seasons and the cold nights, and importantly, a high incidence of cloud cover providing a low UV or ultraviolet radiation. This all ensures the grape skins remain thin and translucent, with high acid ratio…so important for quality sparkling wines.”.

Her first release from the 2015 vintage garnered instant accolades, and Natalie was dubbed the ‘Rose Queen’ by Australia’s pre-eminent sparkling wine critic, Tyson Stelzer.

From the Producer

"With Tasmania's beauty and strength captured in a bottle, Bellebonne Bis is about absolute floral and fruit gorgeousness. The aromas are a melody of strawberry, Turkish delight and rose petal. The palate is elegant and long with textures of fresh cream, brioche and delicate fruit.

'Bis' is French for 'the space in-between', which encapsulates the process and inspiration it took to make this exquisite non-vintage rosé."

The Real Review

"Pale coral-pink colour, almost rose-gold. Strawberry pinot plus fresh fluffy yeast lees aromas, talcum powder; young and fruity wine but not simple. Deliciously grapy and energetic, with just a tickle of sweetness showing up at the finish." Huon Hooke

"00% '18 vintage from Piper's River, Tasmania. Vinified in the méthode traditionnelle, aged up to 2 years on lees, with partial barrel fermentation and maturation. 2100 bottles. Natalie Fryar didn't make her glorious Vintage Rosé in '18, instead redirecting her Piper's River pinot into this inaugural NV. A gorgeous, bright pale salmon hue, it carries the same DNA as the Vintage in its Piper's River signature of succulent and generous pinot noir, laden with red cherries, wild strawberries and Turkish delight. Barrel fermentation brings savoury charcuterie complexity and wonderfully creamy texture. The dosage is seamlessly integrated, with soft, ripe acidity carrying the finish long and generous. If you love her Vintage Rosé as much as I do, you'll enjoy the relaxed, comfortable and approachable mood of its new little sister." - Tyson Stelzer (Halliday Wine Companion)

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine.
