This alluring rosé takes its inspiration from Bernard and Fredagh Podlashuk, founders of Bellingham and a formidable pair in every sense. Theirs was a romance for the ages, so it only fits that a wine made in their honour should come from some of the most beautiful old vineyards in the Cape, with an equally intriguing story to tell. Typical ripe red fruit from the Pinotage abound on the nose, with well-defined strawberry, raspberry and cherry notes persisting on the palate. Bright acidity balances the sweet fruit, with a hint of spice from the Shiraz adding another interesting layer to this pleasantly dry Rosé. The ideal match for fruit-laden summer salads, sushi and light curry dishes

  1. 91

    Pale gold with the faintest of pink tinges. Intense stone fruit flavours.

  2. 89

    Almost straw hued. Very restrained aromas. Savoury and textural, but lacking fruit expressiveness. Could use just a touch more pink hue.
