Old Vine 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.

HistoryTo 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 Information100% 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.
