BELL HILL

Before Bell Hill wine was produced in the Canterbury region, the Weka Pass area was previously unplanted in grapes but they were drawn there by its pure limestone and chalk soils. There is also subsurface glauconitic clay (rich in iron and magnesium) which is found below the layer of lime in the soil at a depth of 1.5 metres or more in existing blocks. The newly established Roadblock and Slope are rich in tight clays that will bring a different influence to the wines.

Bell Hill Wine

The Bell Hill vineyard was established in 1997 by Marcel Giesen and Sherwyn Veldhuizen on the site of an old limestone quarry in the Weka Pass.

For this pair of experienced wine makers, though they prefer the term wine growers, the pure chalky, limestone soils and calcareous clays set to a northerly exposure were crying out for Bell Hill Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to be planted. As anticipated, the resulting grapes at the Bell Hill vineyard were of an exceptional quality.

Each block and sub plot of the Bell Hill vineyard are individually harvested and once the wines expression can be seen developing during maturation, they are blended to maximise balance, complexity and texture. The supple, firm structure lends itself to aging, and Bell Hill wines are given extra bottle maturation before release. They make just 3 and a half barrels of their beautiful flagship Bell Hill wine and demand regularly outstrips production.
