Tasting Notes

Gracefully pink with burnt orange flashes bursting with enticing crushed red berry, candied red apple, Turkish delight and rosewater aromas. Soft and fruity on entry with succulent strawberry and raspberry avours and subtle spice on a lively dry fruity finish.


Ageing Potential

An effortlessly enjoyable wine best enjoyed within the first 2 years of vintage when the fruit is vibrant and playful.


Blend Information

100% Berry Bush Rose

Food Suggestions

Chill well and serve as an engaging social sipping wine, particularly in summer. Also makes a delicious partner to sushi, smoked salmon, prawn or shrimp canapés, smoked chicken salads or soft creamy cheese.


In The Vineyard

The garden at the Bellingham Manor house was the pride and joy of founding couple Bernard and Fredagh Podlashuk. Whilst Mr Pod went about making wine, Fredagh could be found tending her beloved roses or writing her memoirs in the shade of the ancient trees. The berry bush hedge provides an attractive feature and a sumptuous buffet for the flurry of birdlife providing an evocative tribute to South Africa's first Rosé style wine bottled at Bellingham in 1951.


In The Cellar

The grapes are selected from specific vineyards most suitable for quality grapes for rosé production. Vinicultural tactics support soft juicy berry ripeness with soft tannins and colours for the intended style. The grapes are crushed and left on the skins for 2 hours until the desired colour is extracted and then drawn off settled and allowed to complete cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
