Chardonnay

Bellvale

Gippsland, Victoria

Styx Gully Chardonnay

History

Situated on a sunny hill in the lush green valleys of South Gippsland lies the closely planted, non-irrigated vineyard of Bellvale. The wines reflect this beautiful terrior. The proximity of the Southern Ocean at 20 miles produces a temperate growing season with cool nights. Small crops and amazing fruit intensity are the hallmarks of Bellvale wines which crafted in a converted hay shed. The wines show silky texture and finesse and will benefit from careful cellaring, continuing to develop in the bottle for many years
