A velvety Pinot Noir with grace and elegance, the Bella Reserve is deeply coloured, with concentrated fruit purity and power - excellent cellaring potential. 

The 2017 Bendigo growing season started with warm and calm conditions, which continued during flowering and throughout summer. 2017 in Central Otago produced a low yielding vintage, with excellent fruit concentration and ripe concentrated flavours.  Estate Grown; a selection of clones from specific parts of the vineyard were hand harvested and matured for 19 months in one year-old French oak barriques.

‘Bella Vino’, Beautiful Wine.  Hand Harvested: 11-18 April. 

Limited Edition: 980 Bottles

Drink/Cellar: 2019 until 2027

Bob Campbell 96/100 – Five Stars

“Flagship pinot noir made from bunches that were selected from a four-row block in Mondillo's Bendigo vineyard. Dense, power-packed wine with a silken, seamless texture. Plum, dark berry, spice, thyme and nutty oak flavours. An impressive wine with a big future.”

Drink 2019-2027

Michael Cooper - Five Stars / Gold

“This lush, sturdy, velvety red was estate-grown and hand-selected at Bendigo, and matured for 19 months in French oak barriques (one year-old). Deeply coloured, it is softly mouth filling, with seductively rich, ripe cherry/plum flavours, gentle acidity, and a very harmonious, rounded finish.”
