Bellingham Estate Bernard Series Hand Picked Viognier: A South African Gem Bursting with Flavour

Introduction

South Africa's Western Cape region offers a delightful array of white wines, and among them shines the Bellingham Estate Bernard Series Hand Picked Viognier.  Crafted with precision and attention to detail, this Viognier delivers a captivating balance of ripe fruit, spice, and refreshing acidity. Let's delve into its flavour profile and explore ideal food pairings to elevate your enjoyment.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: In the glass, this Viognier displays a vibrant golden hue with a slight green shimmer around the edges.
  • Nose: Aromas of ripe apricot, juicy peach, and honeysuckle burst forth, intertwined with hints of ginger, vanilla, and a subtle touch of spice.
  • Palate: The palate is where this Viognier truly shines. Rich and textured, it delivers flavours of stone fruit, a hint of tropical pineapple, and delicate notes of white pepper and nutmeg. Balanced acidity keeps the wine lively and prevents it from feeling heavy. The finish is long and satisfying.

Food Pairing Suggestions

Bellingham Estate Bernard Series Hand Picked Viognier complements a wide range of dishes, making it exceptionally versatile:

  • Spicy Cuisine: The Viognier's touch of spice complements the heat of Asian dishes like Thai green curry or a fragrant Indian vindaloo.
  • Seafood: Pair it with grilled prawns seasoned with garlic and herbs, or a pan-seared halibut with a lemon-butter sauce.
  • Creamy Dishes: The wine's richness cuts through cream-based pasta dishes or a classic chicken pot pie.
  • Cheese: Enjoy it with soft ripened cheeses like Brie or Camembert, or a flavorful goat cheese.
