Grenache Blanc with Viognier White South African Wine
To coax the juice from the grapes requires the gentlest of treatment. To achieve this, our winemaker uses the traditional method of whole bunch pressing. Soft handling of the grapes and delicate extraction of the juice ensure that the true characteristics of each variety are articulated in the finest of detail. The wine is a blend of 60% Grenache Blanc and 40% Viognier.
The grapes used to make this wine are hand picked and hand selected, nurtured every step of the way, in true Bernard dedication. Whole bunch pressing gently extracts the juice and the Grenache Blanc and the Viognier are fermented separately. After cold fermentation the Grenache Blanc is matured in new and second fill French oak barrels for a period of 5 months before blending with the tank fermented Viognier. A unique and intriguing wine with aromas and flavours of green apples with hints of honeysuckle, peaches, pears and a spiced vanilla finish.
To his friends and family he was 'Pod', but to the Cape Winelands he was Bernard Podlashuk, the 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 Bernard's tenacity and innovative flair lives on through The Bernard Series, Bellingham's premium range of extraordinary wines.
The grapes are selected from vineyard sites in the Agter Paarl area of the Cape Winelands. Tended by hand the vines grow in weathered granite soils and produce low yields of high quality fruit.
