Wines from the Belfield Vineyard

Ben of Newton Wines at the Belfield vineyard

Belfield is a tiny 5.5 hectare, family run wine farm situated on a hill in the Elgin valley. The soil is beautifully suited to red wines, well drained and rich in iron, and faces north, creating a pocket of land that produces elegant cooler climate red wines. Each wine produced from Belfield is from one vineyard, beautifully showing the influence of terroir on different varietals. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz are all planted in single block.
The Elgin valley has become an exciting destination for wine enthusiasts and many winemakers have also planted their flag in this up and coming region. Elgin has a reputation for its white wines and Pinot Noir, Mike Kreft has build his reputation on a pair of beautifully crafted reds. To discuss or purchase these wines, please contact Newton Wines on 01363 83301 or by email.

Belfield Magnifica 2009

The Belfield Magnifica 2009 is made from Cabernet Sauvignon with a splash of Merlot and Shiraz. Just 20% of the wine sees new oak, the remaining second and third fill. The wine is deep ruby red in colour going to garnet. Aromas of dry red berry, delicate blackcurrant and hints of almost liquorice give way to a balanced palate full of soft red ripe crunchy fruit, fresh acidity and fine grained developing tannins. An elegant finish which has some cedar and aromatic notes. This wine can be drunk now-providing you give it at least an hour good “jug time”. Will cellar well for another five to eight years. One to buy now as it is very limited in production and each vintage sells out fast.

Grapes: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot & Shiraz     Alcohol: 13.5%

Aristata 2009

A careful and elegant cool climate blend of four varieties between the two adjacent vineyards on the Belfield property.
richly textured with vanilla and cigar box notes, a sumptuous complexity and fresh acidity.
A refreshing elegant wine with ripe fruit, vanilla and cigar box notes balanced by fresh acidity. The Aristata is a beautiful, richly textured which is lightly oaked combining dark berry fruit with the soft tannins. A velvety finish of fruit cake, which lingers on the palate.
Newton Wines is delighted to have beeen able to import a small ammount of the delightful 2009 vintage, so get it while you can.

Grapes: Merlot 76%/Cabernet Sauvignon 7%/ Shiraz 7%/ Cabernet Franc 10     Alcohol: 13.5%
