Bellingham Bernard Series Small Barrel SMV 2017

Bellingham Bernard Series Small Barrel SMV 2017

Deep ruby with a bright crimson rim. An entry of alluring black and red berry and cherry aromas layered with dark chocolate, winter spice, rose and violet on the nose carried through to an intricate intensely fruited palate that is both powerful and graceful. A long, full finish of good length and
complexity.

A great food wine that will match a variety of dishes including rosemary roasted lamb, char-grilled beef steaks, spicy sausages or tomato based vegetable ragout.

ageing : An attractive and instantly engaging wine with tremendous complexity already, but promises seamless integration and intrigue on maturation for up to ten years in the bottle.

The Bernard Series was named after Bernard Podlashuk, visionary co-founder of the Bellingham brand and 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 his tenacity and innovative flair lives on through the Bernard series, Bellingham’s premium range of handcrafted wines.

in the vineyard : The grapes were hand-picked from selected vineyards in the Agter-Paarl region at optimal ripeness. The smaller Mourvèdre and Viognier components originate from farms that were pioneers of planting these varieties in South Africa. The grapes are specially sourced for their soft, juicy
tannins and purity of fruit.

about the harvest: Careful quality control included bunch selection at harvest followed by berry selection on arrival at the cellar. Natural co-fermentation between the Shiraz, Mourvèdre and Viognier followed. The young wine underwent malolactic fermentation in French oak and was barrel matured for a period of 14 months.
