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


Bellbird Spring Dry Pinot Gris 2011 Waipara, New Zealand
Ripe and textured with notes of grape and melon, with a savoury, spicy edge. A powerful Pinot Gris with rounded, textured fruit. 90/100


Bellbird Spring Block Eight Pinot Gris 2011 Waipara, New Zealand
Lovely ripe apple and pear nose is full and rich. The palate is sweet, textured, appley and intense. Lovely depth of flavour here with baked apple and spice. 93/100


Bellbird Spring Home Block White 2009 Waipara, New Zealand
Complex with apple, pear, spice and citrus on the nose: sweet and toasty. The palate is off dry with powerful apple and pear fruit. Richly textured. 91/100


Bellbird Spring Pruners Reward Pinot Noir 2010 Waipara, New Zealand
Lovely sweet, seductive floral and red cherry fruit nose. Supple and a bit sappy. The palate is warm and smooth, ripe and silky, with lovely balance and a bit of warmth. It carries its 15% alcohol well. 93/100

Bellbird Spring Block Eight Pinot Noir 2011 Waipara, New Zealand
Aromatic, sweet, perfumed red cherry fruit nose is warm and elegant. The palate is sweet and ripe with supple, gently spicy fruit and an elegant textured mouthfeel. Finishes fine and spicy. 94/100
