De Wetshof 'Limestone Hill' Chardonnay 2017


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

88 pts Wine Spectator 12/15/17
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.



Winemaker Notes

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.”
