  • Tasting Notes

    Intense floral with a broad spectrum of very bright red fruit. Notes of mid ferment (raspberry, wild thyme) with an element of "mystery". Earthiness.​

    On the palate it is broad and silky with fine grained tannins. A herbal edge with classic raspberry and a hint of caramel. Great balance of fruit, tannins and acid. Slightly more structured than previous vintages and should age very well if left well alone.

  • Vineyard Notes

    Fruit for our wine, La Bella Rosa is sourced exclusively from Mt Rosa Lodge planting of Pinot Noir (clone 777). Sitting at 482m above sea level, one of the highest Vineyards in New Zealand.

    Our Pinot Noir was first released in 2008, the very first vintage from this small, unique and privately-owned single vineyard site. Our wine is made on a very small scale, only 4- 5 barrels are produced each year.
