2018 Bellbrae Estate ‘Longboard’ Bellarine Peninsula Pinot Gris
David Crawford and his family established Bellbrae Estate in the late 1990’s. The property and vineyard is a stone’s throw from the famous Bells Beach surf break. The Longboard range is David’s entry level brand, utilising fruit off his property and from friends. His latest Gris is the best we’ve seen. Some noticeable barrel ferment characters and lees work, creating a more textural and rounder wine. There’s loads of rockmelon fruit and honey – yum.
