Nestled between the slopes of the Groot Drakenstein mountains in the Franschhoek Valley, lies the Bellingham Farm. These wines brings homage to the Bellingham approach of 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 : 2017 vintage is one of the best Richard has had so far. “Everything worked in our favour,” he says. “I rate it higher than 2015, possibly even as good as 2009. Certainly the wines are a lot more accessible earlier than we’ve had for a long time.”

Terroir: The vineyards are on the northern and eastern foothills of Simonsberg known for its weathered granite, ideal for farming top quality Shiraz.
Climate: The long, warm summers, typical to the Mediterranean, is also enjoyed in Paarl and it creates the ideal environment for ripening varieties like Shiraz and Chenin Blanc.

about the harvest: Grapes were handpicked early March.

in the cellar : Berries were sorted before a slow fermentation on the skins, punch downs for colour extraction coaxes depth of colour and flavour before malolactic fermentation and maturation took place.
