Airline pilots make surprisingly good wine. Their appreciation of the sciences, a respect for the weather and a bird's eye view of the land, all invaluable to the winemaker's art. John Ellis would take every opportune weekend away from his regular New York Paris route, to pursue a passion for viticulture. He planted the first commercial Cabernet Merlot vines in the Hamptons and found time between trans atlantic flights to work vintages amongst the Grand Cru vineyards of La Bourgogne. Ellis ultimately made the great lifelong sea change in favour of our land downunder. He settled on a farmstead outside Leongatha, amongst the slow ripening pastures of Gippsland and established a vineyard called Bellvale... Placing pinot amongst the pastures»

In the days when wine production was rapidly expanding and tobacco was in decline, contracts were offered to grow grapes. The first blocks of Chrismont were transformed from tobacco to grape vine in the 1980s. As a mutation of the deep purple Pinot Noir and the greenish yellow Pinot Blanc, Pinot Grigio runs a spectrum of fruit characters that vary according to terroir and clime. Fruit is vinified in chilled fermenters to maintain varietal freshness, upon completion and following a term of repose for clarification, components are assembled along with a small percentage of reserve wine for added complexity and extra interest.

Ripe pear and melon are predominant with subtleties of quince and cooked apple. A luscious rounded front palate with flavours of quince, custard apple and toasted almond, acid is firm and structured before a dry and lasting finish.
