The Bernard Series Chenin Blanc
The Bernard series is a tribute to Bellingham Wine’s celebrated founder, Bernard Podlashuk, whose visionary approach and bold risks helped shape the course of South African wine. This wine is thoroughly contemporary, elaborately intricate, with a compelling individualistic character that reflects the tremendous history of some of the oldest bush vines in the Cape. A wine that stands out in a crowd accounting for the extraordinary track record of awards and deserved reputation as a quintessential South African Chenin Blanc.
On the nose: a luminescent gold wine with rambunctious fleshy peach, passion fruit, honey melon, papaya and pineapple fruit aromas layered with whiffs of oatmeal and crushed wheat.
On the palate: lavish concentrated fruit flavours from the nose – powerful yet accommodating on the palate with discernible, yet seamless and subtle spicy oak complexity. The riveting finish is fresh and intense with tremendous length, making it a great wine for enjoyment with food.
