Bellingham The Bernard Series Old Vine Chenin Blanc 750ml

Old Vine The gnarled bark and weathered stems of these old bush vies are a testament to the age old saying "good things come to those who wait." Chenin Blanc From the 40-year old vines, through the 12 month maturation, to your hands, it truly is time that has been the master craftsman of this wine. Our founder, Bernard Podlashuk, is celebrated for his daring vision, adventurous approach and creative risks that helped shape the course of South African wine. His tenacity and innovative flair inspired this Chenin Blanc, a thoroughly contemporary, elaborately intricate wine with a compelling individualistic character that reflects the tremendous history of some of the oldest bush vines in the Cape. Handpicked and naturally fermented to preserve the opulent tropical fruit flavours with hints of honey and oak spices on the finish.

The legend of Bernard's tenacity and innovative flair lives on through The Bernard Series, Bellingham's premium range of extraordinary wines.
