Bellingham, Bernard Series, Old-Vine Chenin Blanc, Western Cape, South Africa 2012
16pts/20 (86/100pts)
This range takes its name from Bernard Podlashuk who, along with his wife, restored the whole Bellingham estate in the 1940s. Its Old-Vine Chenin has a smoky, appley nose, while the palate is lithe and textured, delivering more, crisp apple notes plus touches of honey.
