MENU’s Wine of the Week. De Wetshof Limestone Hill Chardonnay 2018

We tasted this wine at the launch last week and it so impressed us. It is the top seller of the six De Wetshof Chardonnays and is unwooded. Limes and lemon blossom perfume on the friendly nose with some brioche, butter and marmalade hints from the lees

A good prickle on the tongue; the wine is fruity and rounded with citrus, apple, white peach and a little tropical hint, followed by some nice soft chalky tannins and minerality. It pairs with all sorts of food really well, from soups to fish to meat and goes especially well with rich sauces
