Save £15 on this selection that will get the nod from the most well-heeled of gatherings. A wine voted in the top 15 at the Chardonnay Du Monde competition in France, a Riesling led blend from Walker Bay and another Chardonnay that received 93 points from Tim Atkin, Silver in the Decanter Wine Awards and 4.5 stars in John Platter.
De Wetshof "Lesca" Chardonnay 2020: Lesca Chardonnay is Burgundian in style - so think of cold winters and warm summers - with a light oakiness that comes from 10% new and 90% second fill French oak barrels. There is a nuttiness to it with fresh acidity to balance this. It has a very long palate that in my opinion is a great intro into South African wine for those Burgundy white wine fanatics. I think it's pretty special. The French agree too, at the Chardonnay du Monde Competition in France in March, it was voted in the top 15 wines out of 604 sampled and received a Gold Medal. Go on spoil yourself!!
De Westhof "Bon Vallon" Chardonnay 2020: Compared to the "Lesca" Chardonnay, this is unwooded. This comes from the Robertson Valley. This wine has fresher notes of citrus and wildflowers. One thing we must remember, In Burgundy irrigation is illegal, but here in Robertson, they can manage the irrigation to ensure the grapes develop the optimum ripeness and hence the flavours. I am excited to show this wine to some staunch Kiwis.
Crocodiles Lair Chardonnay 2018: The German magazine Weinwelt did a survey of 340 of the world’s top Chardonnays and voted Crocodiles Lair as 7th – an outstanding accolade. In addition, this wine has been awarded 93 points by Tim Atkin Master of Wine, a Silver by the IWSC, a Silver medal in Decanter Wine awards and 4.5 stars by the John Platter guide.
Bouchard Finlayson Blanc de Mer 2018: This wine is an interesting blend from the fact that it is Riesling dominated (65%) and not many leave out Chenin Blanc, let alone blend Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. This gives you a wine that is bursting with fresh fruit like pineapple and apricots along with a super fresh floral nose, but a subtle nutty richness that balances it all out. It’s an elegant aperitif wine, or if its super sunny and you want the ultimate refreshing easy-drinking wine, choose this.
DMZ Chenin Blanc 2019: This is a less dry white - so a little higher on the residual sugar level but with hints of honey, peach and apricot this wine will be quite deceiving. Minimal skin contact and fermentation in a combination of steel and French oak allows the fruit to really stand out.
