The Domaine Bellvale has 10 hectares of Pinot Noir , in probably the best region in Australia to produce 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 barriques for at least 12 months
Then further ageing is done in the cellar once bottled for at least another year for the Pinot Noir : it fully expresses its delicacy and finesse after a minimum period of 5 years of age
Delicious. I completely adore this wine, its earthy and has really soft tanins.
We had this with roasted lamb and it honestly improved the meal so much.
