The Bellevue Estate Shiraz 2021 vintage produced just 1000 cases (12 per case), and is made on site in small two tonne open fermenters and hand shovelled via a small grape de-stemmer atop the fermenter allowing the fruit to enter the fermenter without the use of a must pump.

After cold soaking 10% of the juice is run off to intensify colour and flavours. The fermenters are hand plunged prior to traditional hand ratchet basket pressing. All wine is matured in french and American oak hogshead barrels for eighteen months. The wine is made with minimal intervention with no added tannins or finings.

Winery & Vintage Info

Bellevue Estate Vineyard is a ten acre Shiraz vineyard situated on the main street in the township of McLaren Vale.

Corey Vandeleur (Owner & Winemaker) hand planted the original five acre north/south facing vineyard. In 1997, with Calius cuttings from Steve Maglieri’s vineyard, the remaining five acre east/west facing vineyard were planted. In 1999 both were clone 1127.

The vines sit on a foot of red and brown loam over lime and ironstone. With a vacant 20 acre cash crop on the seaward side, the vineyard enjoys the benefit of the cooling afternoon sea breezes provided by the St Vincent Gulf to compliment the warm ripening days.

Corey still maintains all aspects of the single cordon vineyard including irrigation, spraying and hand pruning every vine.
