The Innovation Series is at once a nod to Bellingham’s history as a fruit farm and the fresh, flavoursome produce that fills the farm kitchen, as well as a vehicle to explore contemporary wine trends.

Innovation Series – Mocha Java

Vintage: 2014
Variety: 100% Merlot
Alc: 13.5% vol
Wine of Origin: Coastal Region

Lively ruby with good depth of colour and a vibrant pink rim. Immediate inviting aromas of roast coffee beans and bitter dark chocolate, carried by juicy black- and red cherry fragrances that glide across the palate in a smooth and delicious mouthful of ripe, fleshy plum and mulberry fruit that integrates seamlessly with fresh coffee grinds and flecks of cacao and vanilla. Soft and lingering on the finish.

Alc: 13.5% vol
Wine of Origin: Coastal Region

Vibrant gold with bright green glimmers; packed with the punchy citrus aromas of orange, tangerine and a tropical twist of honey melon and pineapple, followed by a fresh surge of key lime and Clementine flavours that brush with brisk minerality on the zesty, mouth-watering finish.

Innovation Series – Pinopasso

Vintage: 2015
Variety: 80% Pinotage, 20% Shiraz
Alc: 13.5% vol
Wine of Origin: Coastal Region

South Africa’s unique Pinotage variety made in Ripasso style as a tribute to the Italian POWs who lived and worked at Bellingham. In creating this wine we strove to combine the best of Italy and South Africa to arrive at a product that has the fruit profile associated with Pinotage (dark cherries, plums and blue berry flavours), as well as the dark colour, richness, texture and complexity of a matured Shiraz. The wine benefits from the extra skin contact and the freshness that a higher acid brings to and older wine. Succulent red berry and sweet spice flavours makes for smooth drinking on its own; pairs beautifully with mushroom risotto or veal Parmigiano.
