De Wetshof Limestone Hill Chardonnay 2021



90 pts James Suckling January 2022

Sliced pear, lemon, apple, apricot and crushed stones on the nose. Medium-bodied with tangy acidity and a fresh, mineral palate. Precise. Sustainable. Drink now. Screw cap.

90 pts Wine Spectator ‘Smart Buys’ April 2022

Pear and pineapple fruit flavors are bright and juicy in this lively Chardonnay. Lithe and zesty, with accents of wet stone, grated ginger and verbena gliding through on the lip-smacking finish. Drink now through 2025

Winemaker Notes

The grapes are picked in the coolness of morning, and the emphasis is on capturing the natural complexities of the Chardonnay grape immediately for the making of this unwooded wine. Once de-stemming, pressing and overnight settling are complete, the juice is racked off from the sediment and pumped into stainless steel tanks for the alcohol fermentation. After fermentation the wine is left on the less under controlled temperatures. Weekly stirring of the lees ensures maximum flavors are released into the wine until ready for bottling.

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.
