De Wetshof Lesca Chardonnay 2018
Wine Spectator: "This wraps a core of tasty pear, green apple and melon flavors with a judicious dose of salted butter, letting a flash of verbena add range and lift on the finish. Nicely done. Drink now through 2021. 3,500 cases made, 150 cases imported." Jun 2019
Winery: "The name De Wetshof has been synonymous with the production of fine wines in South Africa since the 1970’s. As the first registered wine estate in the Robertson Wine Valley, De Wetshof has become known internationally as South Africa’s eminent Chardonnay House due to the pioneering role it played in introducing this noble Burgundian grape to the country.
The soils’ limestone and clay components help 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."
