97 Points Decanter
Bellingham Old Vine Chenin Blanc offers the texture and weight of Chardonnay but with a completely different set of flavours on display. The aromas and flavours seem to come in waves with this wine, and the finish is crisp enough to hold it all together and keep it food-friendly. You often don’t see 97 Point white wines at this price point, so take advantage and enjoy all summer long.
“A big, inviting nose of spicy new French oak, honeysuckle, tarte tatin, river stones, and smoky quince. A lovely creamy, slippery texture, with a touch of oak tannin and a long, tangy finish.”
A luminescent gold wine with fleshy peach, passion fruit, honey melon, papaya and pineapple fruit aromas layered with whiffs of oatmeal and crushed wheat that follow through with lavish concentrated fruit flavours from the nose. Powerful yet balanced on the palate with discernible, yet seamless and subtle spicy oak complexity. The riveting finish is fresh and intense with tremendous length, making it a great wine for enjoyment with food.
