2022 Estate Vermentino
Consistently one the best white wines that Bella Grace grows, this edition is no different. The color of pale straw, it has wonderful weight and great mouth feel.
The nose is full of kiwi and lime and pineapple. The flavor bursts on the front of the palate and continues all the way to the back of the palate. It has lovely light
acidity and provides a long and juicy finish. Enjoy it now!
2021 Reserve Chardonnay
The color of this wonderful chardonnay is golden topaz and the wine is a jewel. The nose is a mélange of pineapple, stone fruit and minerals. It
spent enough time in oak to deepen its character but enough was in stainless steel to maintain its bright acidity. The flavors develop across
the palate – tropical fruits, spice and vanilla. It has a long luxurious finish.
2021 Estate Albarino
The 2021 version of this wine is exceptional. It is very pale in color with loads of fruit on the nose, and hints of peach, apricot, and citrus dominate. It has soft tannins with a silky mouthfeel. The flavors develop quickly on the palate, kiwi, and key lime. A savory finish with aromatics lingering will entice you back for more.
2021 Estate Syrah Rosé
Hailing from our Estate Vineyard, this wine was a last-minute add to our lineup for 2021. It was so enjoyable, tasty, and distinct that we decided to bottle some of it on its own! Clear and vivid aromas of strawberry and cranberries are underlined by subtle hints of leather and Anaheim chilis. On the palate, the laser-focused acidity seamlessly exists with the wine’s suppleness while enhancing its natural flavors of orange peel and guava.
