The Bernard Series was named after Bernard Podlashuk, visionary co-founder of the Bellingham brand and maverick winemaker. Never quite satisfied to be just ordinary, he is recognised for his daring vision, sheer audacity and unabated drive that helped place South African wine on the map. The legend of his tenacity and innovative flair lives on through the Bernard series, Bellingham’s premium range of hand-crafted wines.
A powerful aromatic wine that is assertive and yet delicate and refined with ample cracked black and white pepper spice, hints of rich dark chocolate against a substantial blackberry and mulberry fruit foundation tinged with subtle floral suggestions of violets and dried indigenous fynbos.
This wine is particularly recommended with full flavoured dishes like roast venison, aged fillet and rump steaks, spicy sausages or confit of duck.
