Awards, Reviews and other Notes

91 pts Wine Spectator 6/15/18
Lovely yellow apple, white peach and honeysuckle notes have weight but stay pure, with a long, verbena-infused finish, kissed by sweetened butter hints. Drink now through 2020.
4 Stars 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Pure expression untrammeled by oak, yet 17 also mouthfillingly rich from lees stirring, adding butteriness to fresh granadilla fruit. Ends with lime zest tang.
92 pts Vinous/Neil Martin Aug 2018
The 2017 Bon Vallon Chardonnay comes from gravelly soils and saw no wood contact. It has an attractive bouquet with scents of white peach, guava and yellow flowers. The palate is well balanced with a fresh citrus opening and very fine tension and penetration. Green apple, grapefruit and light peachy notes appear toward the focused finish. Excellent.
91 pts Tim Atkin MW 2018
Bon Vallon comes from a rocky site with lots of limestone. Unoaked, like many a Chablis, this spends 120 days on lees to put on more weight and balance the tangy, chalky minerality. 2018-23



Winemaker Notes

Soils rich in limestone and broken mountain rock on De Wetshof’s site-specific vineyards allow this wine to emit optimum varietal expression. An unwooded wine, Bon Vallon has a brisk and clean freshness leading into a wide spectrum of classic flavours including citrus, wild flowers and grilled nuts, with a nuanced minerality on the aftertaste.
