Established in 1998, Bellvale Wine is a family-owned business run by winemaker, viticulturalist (and former pilot) John Ellis. Dry grown low yielding vineyard situated in the lush Tarwin River valley of South Gippsland, one of Australia’s best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay producing regions. Many International awards and accolades including the coveted James Halliday Wine Companion 5 Star Winery Rating. John’s fanatical hands-on, attention to detail approach to winemaking salutes his obsession with traditional methods used by premium winemakers in Burgundy, where he honed his craft over many years. Wines now made by pinot king Sandro Mosele.
A refreshing Rose of Pinot Noir, nice, solid – almost nutty background – with real substance.
95 points, Ralph Kyte-Powell, Good Food SMH “Is this Australia’s best rosé? This pale, coppery pink Gippsland pinot noir has real complexity. Subtle strawberry and cream aromas, perfumed varietal touches, smokey and foresty notes lead into a seamless, soft, ripely flavoured palate of richness and lingering, slightly fruit-sweet presence. Quite delicious.”
95 points, 5 stars, Huon Hooke, The Real Review “Produced from pinot noir, this is a rosé of real complexity and character, a wine I’d want to drink several glasses of. Medium salmon-pink with a rich, multi-layered bouquet, it has a soft, fleshy, textural palate tempered by a trace of sweetness. It’s very more-ish. “
91 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front “Savoury styling but with fruit in back. Is that some sarsaparilla I can taste? Stony feel gives it excellent texture, and the finish is satisfying too, sappy and passionfruit pulpy. Much to like here.”
Gourmet Traveller Wine “It’s hard to go wrong with Gippsland pinot and Bellvale’s John Ellis is onto a winner here. This rosé is upfront with its Italianate orange peel aromas and flavours, but a small, attractive amount of residual sugar makes for an incredibly moreish wine.”
