Bell Hill Chardonnay 2015 Bold, peachy and toasty with some pineapple and citrus fruit. Powerful with good acid line. This is still compact and intense with amazing depth and precision. Combines richness and freshness, finishing with lovely acidity. A really layered wine that should carry on developing over the next few years. 95/100

Bell Hill Chardonnay 2015 Ripe and full flavoured stonefruit and citrus, but with a mineral/herbal edge and hint of matchstick flintiness. Creamy biscuit texture to start on palate, but tightly focussed finish with salty lime minerality, and vibrant acidity.
Bell Hill Pinot Noir 2015 A wine defined by power, finesse and presence. The oak is toasty, spicy and savoury perfectly accompanying damson plums and ripe raspberries. Exotic perfume note bringing further character.

Bell Hill Chardonnay 2015 Wonderfully pure, powerful wine supported by a backbone of ripe acidity that helps drive a very lengthy finish 99 Points

Bell Hill Chardonnay 2014 Very complex, smoky, struck-match sulfides overlying buttered toasty barrel-fermented chardonnay complexities. A riot of chardonnay flavor and bouquet, gloriously flavoursome and layered, rich abut still light on its feet. Very persistent, with well judged subtle bitter phenolics cleansing and firming the finish. 96 Points
