Tasting Notes

Dark ruby of medium depth with exuberant dark berry aromas, interesting oak spice and pepper on the nose. Medium bodied and sleek on entry with succulent summer berry confit flavours brushed with dark chocolate and smoky oak evident. Smooth textured tannins support the well balanced perfectly integrated blend right through to a vibrant juicy finish with attractive fruit intensity.

Ageing Potential

Deliciously easy drinking for best enjoyment within the first 3 years of vintage.

60% Shiraz, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon

Food Suggestions

Additional Information
The magnificent Big Oak at the Bellingham Manor house is a focal feature in the beloved garden of founding couple Bernard and FredaghPodlashuk. It was in the shade of this tree that friends and family of the ‘Pods’ gathered in celebration of life in the Franschhoek valley.

This robust blend combines stately blackcurrant fruit intensity of Cabernet Sauvignon with succulent mulberry and spice from Shiraz in a perfectly balanced blend that is smooth and juicy for easy social drinking on its own, around the fire, or at the dinner table.
