De Wetshof 'Lesca' Chardonnay 2017 93 pts Wine Spectator

Tasting Notes

Oct 2018 - A creamy top note is underpinned with tart pear and yellow apple touched with some subtle honeysuckle and a citric lift to the aromatics. Medium bodied, actually quite elegant, the palate is lightly creamy with yellow apple, melon and pear fruit flavors that are precise and vibrant leading to a finish that has a hint of butter on the impressively long, dry finish. Impressive from start to finish this is all about restraint and elegance with a core of engaging fruit flavors.

Food Accompaniments

Seafood, grilled fish


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

93 pts Wine Spectator 6/15/18
Very enticing, with creamy green and yellow apple, pear and melon flavors laced with verbena and honeysuckle notes, kissed elegantly by a sweetened butter hint through the finish. This is why people love Chardonnay. Drink now through 2021



Winemaker Notes

The limestone and clay componentes in the soil helps the vines to develop strong citrus flavors with a pronounced nuttiness on the mid-palate, which leads through to a clean finish with zesty citrus notes. The wine matures beautifuly, the years adding dimension and complexity. Enjoy with a leg of lamb, grilled or barbecued meat such as lamb chops and sausages, as well as seafood and grilled fish.
