About the listing
Bellbrae Estate is fortunate to be situated right in the heart of one of the world's most magnificent stretches of coast, Victoria's Surf Coast. And like those pioneers of the waves from the 1950s through, those people that lived their lives in order to get back to 'their' breaks, Bellbrae Estate wants to remind you of what life is truly about. Enjoyment. Finding something you love. Dreaming.
With handcrafted wines made from predominantly estate-grown fruit, Bellbrae Estate realised their dream which is why their wines are named after the regions local surf breaks. Cheeky though some of those names are, they locate their wines firmly within their regional context, and it is this region that is celebrated at Bellbrae Estate.
The new Release wines are a standout. Extraordinary examples of cool climate wines, the 'Bird Rock' Pinot Noir and the 'Bells' Syrah burst with berry characteristics. The Pinot Noir exemplifies the fine tannin balance and characteristic flavours of this cool climate-preferring grape and the Syrah ripples across the palate in a delicate dance of flavours and aromas delighting all who try. The 'Boobs' Chardonnay, named after legendary 60s surfer Boobs Johnson, was recently awarded four and a half stars by Wine State and is virtually flying out the door.
The Longboard Range is inspired by the image of China enjoying a lazy ride in after the swell; there to help you unwind after work or to enjoy over dinner at home or with friends. Long in flavour and impact, each of the varieties on offer in this range is a finely crafted example of its type, priced for every day.
Elegant, contemporary wines made from estate and select Geelong region fruit their ranges include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Moscato, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Sparkling Shiraz Pinot Noir and a Fortified Cabernet Shiraz.
