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.
Deep ruby with a bright crimson rim. Intense aroma of ripe mulberry and cherry layered with hints of rose and violet, carried through to an intricate intensely fruity palate that is both powerful and graceful. It has a deep inky flavor of red fruits with undertones of liquorice. Complex and elegant, with superb balance and great length. An instantly engaging wine with tremendous complexity already, but promises seamless integration and intrigue on maturation up to 2025.
A great food wine that will match a variety of gastronomy, including roast lamb, char-grilled beef steaks or spicy sausages and mash.
