Bottled under screwcap, the 2019 Limestone Hill Chardonnay has a fresh apple-tinged nose and offers citrus-driven, focused aromas that are bright and lively. The medium-bodied palate is clean and zippy, similar to the sensation of biting into a fresh green apple. The wine ends with a clean, refreshing finish.

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.”
