The aim is to produce quality wines which reflect the grape growing conditions rather than commercial uniformity . The warmer climate of Neurea allows grapes to develop a higher sugar content perfect for the production of fortified wines (formally called ports) including tawny and liqueur muscat for which Bell River Estate has become well known.
