Nestled between the slopes of the Groot Drakenstein mountains in the Franschhoek Valley, lies the Bellingham Homestead. The Homestead Series brings homage to the Bellingham approach to excellence, innovation and quality winemaking through region specific sourcing of grapes and showcasing the most interesting varietals South Africa has to offer.

in the vineyard : The Cape’s devastating drought played a dominant role in this year’s harvest. “At the onset of harvest, people were expecting a below average vintage, however, going on what we are tasting and seeing in the cellar, vintage 2018 was an above average vintage,” says winemaker, Richard Duckitt “Our yields are down a little, but the quality is definitely not.”

Terroir: The vineyards are situated in soils derived from granite and shale with excellent water holding capacity, ideal for dry farming.
Climate: The climate offers high day time temperatures that are cooled off at night by the summer sea breezes from the cold Atlantic Ocean.

about the harvest: Grapes were hand harvested in the first week of February.

in the cellar : Grapes were gently crushed and cold fermented at 16° C in stainless steel. Extended contact with the gross lees stirred up periodically adds richness and mouth feel.
