The Domaine Bellvale has 8 hectares of Chardonnay, in probably the best region in Australia to produce Chardonnay and Pinot Noir due to the climate in the South Gippsland.
Vines are planted 2m row spacing by 70cm plant spacing / 7150 plants per hectare
Ageing of the wine is done in a combination of new and used French oak casks for at least 12 months
To fully enjoy this chardonnay, let it rest for 3 to 5 years . The screw cap doing a great job at keeping it very young

Well balanced wine, ripe fruit, perfectly integrated oak – reminds me of a Meursault in a warm vintage ! Difficult to find good value Aussie wines in France and this is definitely one !
Magnifique Chardonnay avec une belle complexité en bouche.
Excellent vin, je recommande
