De Wetshof Limestone Hill Chardonnay 2017
|Region||South Africa, Breede River Valley, Robertson|
Heavy clay soils rich in limestone allow this Chardonnay to emit optimum varietal expression in a cloak of rich complexity. An un-wooded wine, Limestone Hill has notes of grapefruit and nuts, with the complexity balanced by a nuanced elegance ending with a delicate ripeness. The American critic Robert Parker describes this wine as such: "The De Wetshof Estate Limestone Hill Chardonnay never sees oak, and offers impeccably pure, refreshing apple, peach and lemon fruit, a lovely leesy richness of texture, and a nutty, chalky, fruit-filled finish of imposing length. Understated and less tropical than some of the better un-oaked Chardonnays, this wine possesses far better balance and sheer drinkability - not to mention more finesse - than 99% of the world's Chardonnay I have experienced."
Plump and enticing, with a mix of star fruit, pear, and green and yellow apple fruit flavors caressed by a light shortbread hint on the rounded finish. Drink now. 25,000 cases made.
