De Wetshof Limestone Hill Chardonnay 2015

IMG_1154

The vines that produce the grapes in this true to varietal Chardonnay are rather young at only 7 – 21 years of age, but it’s not the vines that give this wine its stellar structure and complex characteristics, it’s the soil. Located in the Robertson Valley, this vineyard benefits from an abundance of free limestone and a continuous crisp breeze that allows for ripe juicy sugar development in the grapes. This Chardonnay is fermented in stainless steel and never sees oak. So, unlike most of its toasty counterparts, the delicate nutty and citrus fruit flavors of this wine shine through followed by a chalky minerality on the lengthy finish. Some time on the lees, adds texture and a yeasty aroma. This well balanced wine will age through the next decade. Pair it with lighter meat and poultry dishes or will even stand up to heavier flavorful sauces.

Price: $14.99

    Very good, doesn’t taste like a regular California Chard at all.
