Longboard Pinot Noir 2018

Available from 1st September 2020

 

“94 points + Special Value”

“Clones MV6, 777 and 114, 30% whole bunch fermentation and maceration, matured for 12 months in 1-3yo French barriques. Packs a punch with dark berries/stewed plums, spices and ripe tannins. Obviously picked when ripe, not too late.  Its best years are in front of it.”
James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021

 

Like the image of renowned Longboard rider, Rex ‘China’ Gilbert enjoying a lazy ride on a gentle swell, the Longboard range is there to help you unwind or to enjoy over dinner.  Definitely in the fresh fruity end of the spectrum rather than the earthy/barnyard/savoury style.  Long in flavour and impact, each variety on offer in this range is a finely crafted example of its type, priced for everyday and ready to drink now.

A fine example of Bellbrae’s cool-climate region, this Pinot Noir has a soft elegant palate combined with weight and depth.

Lifted cherry and red berry aromas give this wine lasting appeal.  Soft and full red fruits abound – think strawberries, mulberries and raspberries.  Luscious across the mid palate with lashings of fruit this wine also has soft tannins making it a perfect accompaniment to a surprising variety of meals.

Bellbrae Estate

“Best Wineries of the Regions” + “5 black stars”

“The Surf Coast area of Geelong enjoys a slightly milder climate overall than other areas of the Geelong viticultural region. Being so close to Bass Strait, Bellbrae Estate experiences a maritime influence that reduces the risk of frost in spring and provides more even temperature ranges during summer – ideal growing conditions for producing elegant wines that retain their natural acidity.”
