Bellingham The Bernard Series Basket Press Syrah 2014
Coastal region, South Africa

A powerful aromatic wine that is assertive and yet delicate and refined with ample cracked black and white pepper spice, hints of rich dark chocolate against a substantial blackberry and mulberry fruit foundation tinged with subtle floral suggestions of violets and dried indigenous fynbos. A generously structured wine with astute ripe tannin texture that promises further integration and complexity on cellar maturation for up to 10 years. This wine is particularly recommended with full flavoured dishes like roast vension, aged fillet and rump steaks, spicy sausages or confit of duck.

Alc. 14%

Winery Profile

BELLINGHAM – Western Cape

Originally known as ‘Bellinchamp’ (pretty fields), Bellingham begins its story in 1693 when Hollander Gerrit Janz van Vuuren and his French Huguenot wife planted the first 1000 vines on the estate.
The new century saw a shift in the Bellingham portfolio and The Maverick range of wines was launched in 2002 – a challenge to convention and custom. Boldly exploring new territories in the fine art of crafting wine, Bellingham has received numerous international awards and acclaim. This generation of Bellingham celebrates the historic momentum that has shaped its wines through time in four chapters that tell the stories behind the gable bound by a golden thread of innovation, ingenuity and foresight.
