2014 De Wetshof Estate Limestone Chardonnay
Lately we have received numerous requests for a WOW that is not red. Well, our customers are right! Who said you can’t drink white wine during the winter anyway? This week’s star is a “Winter Warmer” that isn’t red. Enjoy!
90 Point Winter Chardonnay
The name De Wetshof has been synonymous with the production of fine wines in South Africa since the 1970’s. As the first registered wine estate in the Robertson Wine Valley, De Wetshof has become known internationally as South Africa’s eminent Chardonnay House due to the pioneering role it played in introducing this noble grape to the South Africa.
90 Points, The Wine Advocate:
“The 2014 Limestone Hill Chardonnay has a more austere but more intellectual bouquet compared to the Bon Vallon with stony, mineral scents coming through with aeration. The palate is well-balanced with vibrant acidity, plush peach and mango notes with a refined but generous finish that offers hints of apricot and fruit salad on the aftertaste. Excellent.”
Regular Price: $18.99
