Product Description

  • Chenin Blanc - White South African Wine
  • The gnarled bark and weathered stems of these old bush vines are a statement to the age old saying "good things come to those who wait."
  • 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 spice on the finish.

Vinification Details

  • Produced from 100% Chenin Blanc, the grapes are hand harvested and fermented at 16ºC in stainless steel. The wine is then matured in French oak barrels for 9 months.


  • 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.

Regional Information

  • 100% Chenin Blanc from old, bush vines on free draining mountain top vineyards in the Agter-Paarl, Durbanville and the Bottelary Hills areas of the Cape Winelands. Tended by hand the vines grow in weathered granite soils and produce low yields of high quality fruit.

I have been looking for a South African chenin blanc with a full oaky flavour and this certainly hits the mark. Paying a little more isn't always the answer, but in this case it was worth the extra couple of pounds per bottle.

Hint of oak

Review from

I bought this wine as a change from my usual purchases. Not a good choice. The tasting notes include a reference to Oak flavours, it tastes as though it was made at the height of a forest fire, and overpowers everything else. I have tested it on other people who's comments have ranged from OK, not bad, strange taste, to you did'nt pay that much did you. This will not be a repeat purchase

This wine is fantastic

Review from

I first tasted this wine at a friend's house and really liked it. When I tried to buy it I could only find the 2014 at Majestic which was totally different and I would NOT recommend it. I finally found the 2013 at Tesco online and bought a signifiant quantity. If you like fresh rich chardonnay type white wine with the correct amount of old oak, this wine is for you. In fact it is made from old vine chenin from South Africa but it is the taste that matters. Excellent. I managed to lock it in at the 25% case discount and am delighted.

Excellent Chenin Blanc!
