Styled for long haul from Darling & Cape Town fruit, 19 (91 pts) opens out to heady mix of dark plum & damson, attractive whiff of toasty 40% new oak, ripe, supple tannin. Rich, juicy texture given firm freshness by acid

Winemaker Notes

“The Bernard Series is our tribute to the determination and maverick spirit of Bellingham’s co-founder Bernard Podlashuk. Celebrated as a trail-blazing visionary, Bernard’s tenacity and courage established the winery’s stellar reputation and helped shape the South African wine industry we know and love today.

Bernard was never quite satisfied to be just ordinary, and is famous for his daring vision, sheer audacity and unabated ambition to push the boundaries of possibilities for Cape wines. The legend of Bernard’s tenacity and innovative flair lives on through The Bernard Series range of hand-crafted wines, each with a stamp of unmistakable site-specificity and individuality.

This internationally awarded boutique series is thoroughly contemporary, elaborately intricate and wholly unprecedented, made up of wines that are compellingly individualistic, sometimes irreverent, but always fascinating
