This vintage of Bella Una balances rich and seductive aromas of clove, sandalwood with bright red fruits. On the palate the wines juicy mouthfeel is supported by ample acidity building with wild berry fruit through the mid-palate to the fine grain tannins on the finish. An intriguing blend of power and restraint this Pinot Noir is both savory and delicately sweet.
‘Bella Una’ translated from Latin means beautiful together. Our winemaker selects barrels that reflect what he feels are the best expression of the vintage. In 2011, only Heirloom Pinot Noir clones from our Martaella Estate Vineyard were chosen for this intense but delicate Pinot Noir. The grapes are harvested a night or early morning the fruit was rigorously hand sorted prior to partial destemming and then berry selected before open top fermentation.
