Bellvale The Quercus Vineyard Pinot Noir is Crystal-clear crimson; a fragrant collage of red fruits on the bouquet, then a pure and long palate with a slight twist of forest tannins on the finish to add texture. Best for years, long life ahead. James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2012
Perfect balance between alcohol, savoury tannins and acidity. Long finish and beautiful elegance Brilliant ruby red, intense, fresh bouquet of dark berries. The palate shows cherries, hints of black pepper, sweet spices like vanilla and a final mild meaty flavour. There is a lovely integrated velvety, round palate with a full body.
