Bellbird Spring Pruners Reward Sauvignon Blanc 2012 Waipara, New Zealand
Distinctive with rich quince and citrus fruit and some green pepper. Very bold, lively and quite mineral. 89/100

 

Bellbird Spring Block Eight Sauvignon Blanc 2012 Waipara, New Zealand
Characterful and quite unusual this has savoury notes and a dense texture, offering quince, pear and spice characters. So distinctive and mouthfilling, this is a remarkably bold Sauvignon that should age well. 91/100

Stephen Tanzer gives 2011 Bellbird Spring River Terrace Pinot Noir 91 points.

We have had a good review from U.S. writer Stephen Tanzer:
2011 Bellbird Spring River Terrace Pinot Noir. 91 points. “Good bright, deep red. Vibrant but reticent nose hints at raspberry, bitter cherry and flowers. Intensely flavored, tactile and deep, with noteworthy concentration to the flavors of tart cherry and mellow oak. Still a bit of oak to be absorbed on the back end, but the wine’s silky tannins and excellent length suggest that it will be a beauty with a couple years of cellaring.” Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar http://www.wineaccess.com/
