About The Maker
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. The wines they produce all have strong varietal character with excellent flavour intensity.
The Longboard range of wines are a true expression of the region with their exuberant flavours and are a great match for our local produce. Made more to drink now, they are all bursting with freshness and taste, perfect for the relaxed lifestyle.
About The Wine
This wine is one of their new varieties and their first vintage of the wine, and they have nailed the style in a sense of Pinot Gris, its richer and fuller which I suspect has come from the small amount of oak used and time on lees, but still has great freshness and acidity. Varietial nuances are strong with intense pear on the nose and palate, great balance and elegance. Very Nice Wine!!!
