🇿🇦 Bellingham “The Bernard Series” Old Vine Chenin Blanc

 

🍷 Bellingham was originally founded in 1693 and was passed from family to family until 1943 when Bernard Podlashuk purchased the estate. Over the next few decades Bernard would transform the estate into a producer of excellent quality wine. He used the knowledge gained from various wine trips in Europe to modernize Bellingham. The “Bernard Series” is a wine line to tribute Bernard and recognize his importance to Bellingham. This Chenin Blanc comes from 45+ year old vines in soils that are predominately weathered granite with open canopies for maximum sunlight penetration located in the Coastal Region of South Africa. A luminescent gold wine with rambunctious fleshy peach, passion fruit, honey melon, papaya and pineapple fruit aromas layered with whiffs of oats and crushed wheat that follow through with lavish concentrated fruit flavors from the nose - powerful yet accommodating on the palate with discernible, yet seamless and subtle spicy oak complexity. 91 Points JS
