Vinification Details

  • Berries were handsorted before a slow fermentation on the skins, with punch downs for colour extraction and to coax the depth of colour and flavour, before malolactic fermentation and maturation in French oak barrels.

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 Paarl a premier viticultural region. The vineyards are on the northern and eastern foothills of Simonsberg known for its weathered granite, ideal for farming top quality Shiraz.
