Description

The Bernard Series from South Africa's Bellingham Estate is dedicated to their founder, Bernard Podlashuk. This Viognier hand harvests from low yielding vineyards on the Cape Coast. Fermented on the lees with specially selected yeasts to retain fruity aromas before partial maturation in old oak barrels to add layered complexity. 

A fragrant peach and white pear character with a textured and rounded palate. Full flavours of peach and apricot. The finish brings a tropical fruit touch with spice intrigue from oak ageing. Try with flavourful fish, mildly spiced curries, roast chicken or creamy cheeses with sharp flavours. 

The Bellingham Estate has a wealth of history, with the first vines planted by French Huguenot descendants in 1693 , before passing through the families until the production of Franschoek, and the Cape's, first rose wine in 1949, followed by the first varietal Shiraz in 1956. Today, while still inspired by its history of innovation, Bellingham is firmly set in the 21st century, producing contemporary, structured wines with an unmistakable sense of place and style.
