Dark, slightly brooding fruit, quietly revealing its aromas, hinting at dark berry, spice, flowers and perfume with protein and iron notes. Showing a lively palate with a vibrant structural core of acidity and even tannins providing the platform for the fruit to reveal itself over time. Quite tightly bound but also speaking of elegance with a mouth filling mineral finish.
Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer
In 1997 an old lime quarry in Weka Pass, North Canterbury, was transformed into the now internationally recognized vineyard, Bell Hill. Marcel Giesen and Sherwyn Veldhuizen established the property by planting two hectares of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the unique limestone soil and on north facing hillsides.
This was the perfect environment to create sophisticated, elegant wines of a unique character.
“We seek to reflect the characteristic expression of our site and soil in the wines we make, looking for consistent quality, fruit concentration and expression of terroir.” - Bell Hill
