Made from Paarl Paardeberg region grapes, whole-bunch pressed to preserve the wild floral and herbal tea aromas underpinned by soft kiwi, tropical pineapple and peach fruit. A touch of oak spice adds to the intrigue of this food-loving wine.
Originally known as ‘Bellinchamp ’ (pretty fields), Bellingham begins its story in 1693 when Hollander Gerrit Janz van Vuuren and his French Huguenot wife planted the first 1000 vines on the estate. The new century saw a shift in the Bellingham portfolio and The Maverick range of wines was launched in 2002 – a challenge to convention and custom. Boldly exploring new territories in the fine art of crafting wine, Bellingham has received numerous international awards and acclaim.
