Bellingham 'The Founder Series' POD 2015 75cl 14% ABV
Bellingham 'The Founder Series' POD 2015
With its depth of flavour, fragrant spice and integrated, firm tannins, this luxurious Red Wine is an excellent match for a wide variety of gourmet cuisine. Complimentary dishes include richly sauced beef or venison fillet, pork belly and black forest dessert.
The palate reveals fine but grippy tannins, offset by the attractive juicy fruit character which follows through from the nose. A bright line of acidity provides a long, mouth-filling finish.
The Founders Series is a very small selection of the best Wine in the cellar. It follows the Bellingham style and maximum of 5 barrels are selected every year. The concept is to honour Bellingham’s pioneering founders, Fredagh and Bernard Podlashuk, affectionately known as Freda and Pod.
This power couple’s bold vision not only for their iconic brand but the South African wine industry as a whole, left a legacy for the ages. A rare greatness and inspiration, something that these special wines aim to emulate.
The revered treatment this Cape Blend receives from vineyard to cellar shows in its tasting. Made in a more opulent style, this wine brims with rich and layered dark fruit, black cherries and plums on the nose, with sweet spice provided by Shiraz and the use of 1 American oak barrel and 2 French oak barrels.
