The Old Weka Pass Road Pinot Noir is a 5-barrel blend from select barrels of the Quarry Rootlings and 10/5, Slope and Shelf Top. The handling on skins is the same as for the Bell Hill and the French oak was also 100% new. The wine was racked and blended after 12 months in barrel, it had 8 months in tank and was bottled on the 2nd of December 2019 with a pH of 3.69, TA of 5.0g/L, and alcohol of 13%. 1,366 bottles were produced.

Struck match with sweet fruit notes, cool ocean breeze blue fruit, delicate but forthcoming despite the light appearance of colour. A juicy fruit core with linearity and direction. Long with a seamless saline flow, subtle in extraction but has finesse and flow with underlying palate tension.

About Bell Hill

The wines of Bell Hill hold an almost mythical status amongst collectors of New Zealand's finest and rarest wines.

Marcel Giesen and Sherwyn Veldhuizen reject the term 'winemakers', they consider themselves 'winegrowers', seeing the creation of wine as a wholistic, all-encompassing mission. Their Bell Hill dream commenced in 1995 when they found their dream plot of land: a limestone slope in North Canterbury that would be perfect for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with incredible structure and longevity.

Today their wines are rarely seen outside of the finest restaurants. The role-call of critical acclaim for these wines is as long as your arm. No list of New Zealand's most important wines would be complete without these beautiful creations.
