La Bella Rosa Pinot Noir 2019

La Bella Rosa Pinot Noir 2019

Vintage Notes: Grapes picked 1st May. Using a bear earth policy to eradicate weeds, pruning the sub-surface roots to force the vines to bring up really good nutrients from well beneath the surface and more careful attention than ever.


The 2019 season saw above-average rainfall and below-average temperatures, with a later than normal bud burst and flowering. From January through March it was mostly sunny and warm, with temperatures slightly above average and little wind.The 2019 Vintage is smooth delicately fragrant and medium bodied. With subtle savoury cherry-plum aromas, with a hint of pepper, thyme and earth.

  • Tasting Notes

    A soft fruit entry, utterly balanced, delicate fragile structure with acid rather than obvious tannins providing the finish. Lifted, refreshing, blue violets, raspberries, rich plum and a hint of pepper, wild thyme, tabacco meld with fallen leaves and a touch of smoke. There’s complexity and charm, depth and minerality. Lengthy finish and well crafted.

    La Bella Rosa consistently produces delicacy, finesse and detail.
