Bellingham Pear Tree Chenin Blanc 2018 75cl 13% ABV
Delicately gold with youthful green glints and a burst of tropical pineapple, passion fruit and honey melon on the nose embellished with yellow peach and zesty nectarine and orange on the palate. An animated interesting wine that is well balanced and integrated finishing with freshness and lively fruity intrigue.
The long-standing pear tree at the Bellingham Manor house, planted in 1710, is the oldest in South Africa and is a proud feature in the beloved garden of founding couple Bernard and Fredagh Podlashuk. Its branches are home to many birds that help control vineyard pests in perfect co-operation between fauna and flora.
Serve chilled or without food. Particularly recommended with sushi, Thai chicken wraps, Caesar salad or crumbed calamari.
