2008 QUERCUS Vineyard Pinot Noir

(Gold & Silver Medals) was produced from a single, 10 year old vineyard and ‘dry grown’ with high density plantings and low yields resulting in wines with restrained silky tannins, powerful expressions of flavour, lively and bright with a seductive aroma leading to strong spicy overtones of red fruits. It also thrilled and surprised him, by changing quite dramatically in the bottle across last year, resulting in an outstanding wine. (R.R.P.$35)
2009 vintage available



2013 QUERCUS Vineyard Pinot Noir

2009 Athena’s Vineyard Chardonnay

(Silver Medal) is crisp and tightly structured, with a well defined balance between fruit - white peach and melon, with secondary characters and finely integrated spicy oak. There is extraordinary length to the palate where rich concentration is balanced by the fine acidity, producing a delicious wine.  (R.R.P $35)

2013 Bellvale Estate Level Pinot Noir

Warm entry in your mouth well balanced by savoury tannins and good acidity, luminous ruby red colour. Beautiful crispy notes of dark berries, brambles and hints of black pepper. The power of this wine is its vivacity and freshness. 13% alc.


2013 Stony Block Pinot Noir

Bright ruby red with a hint of garnet, this wine keeps changing each time you return to it, so give it time if you want to completely appreciate its potential beauty. Intense bouquet, meaty and gamy at first, it shows up fresh dark berries and bramble flavours as soon as you sip it. You’ll find hints of black pepper, balsamic notes, and you’ll finish with liquorice. Full body, powerful elegant tannins, high acidity, good balance with softness given by the alcohol; Long finish – You can really enjoy it now, but giving it longer aging would let it develop all its potentiality.


2013 Bellvale Pinot Grigio

John’s first Pinot Grigio was planted in 2008, and enjoys Northern Italian grape style similarities. The 2013 is the second vintage and it enjoys a very similar subtlety, the pear, spice and apple are still apparent, and as before it has that freshness that’s all about its cool climate and southern location.
