Kevin Bell & Tricia Byrnes
Kevin & Tricia are immersed in the task of showcasing what their 3 differing single vineyard plots or climats can express from their estate in Balnarring, perched on a crest of volcanic red clay covered by a topsoil of stony red-brown clay loam. Burgundy clearly inspired them to this endeavour, not to mimic the wines from the Cote d’Or in terms of taste but the ethos of single site expressions, terrior driven wines. Planted in 1998 and 1999 the estate has 3.43 hectares of Pinot Noir across 3 clearly defined climats. Lodestone, Hommage and Garamond.
