Vinification Details

  • The grapes were hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and cold-settled prior to natural fermentation in stainless steel and barrel. 60% of the wine was fermented in new and second fill French oak barrels and then matured for 9 months with frequent batonage.

History

  • 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 was 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 Bellingham's range of extraordinary wines.

Regional Information

  • Mountainous terrain and a diversity of terroirs are key contributors that make Stellenbosch a premier viticultural region. The vineyards have granite soils and are above 200m and open to fresh summer breezes originating from False Bay.
