In part 1 of a 2 part extended interview we speak with South African winemaker Richard Duckitt about some of the wines he makes at Bellingham Wines, Franschhoek.

After some technical difficulties a few weeks previously, Richard was kind enough to re-record the interview with me, and we got so much into our conversation that it ran a little longer than we had expected.

The two wines that we taste together are The Old Orchard Chenin Blanc (an absolute steal at $16.95!) and The Bernard Series Limited Edition Chenin Blanc (a really solid example of the wonders of old vine Chenin).

Watch out for Part 2 next week.
