MENU's Wine of the Week. De Wetshof Limestone Hill Chardonnay 2019

The minerality on this new vintage shows first, then the typical slightly bready chardonnay nose of golden citrus.  On the palate, fullness with ripe lemon and some apple and peach notes, a little chalkiness, with salty minerality and a hint of tropical fruit on the long finish.   Very refreshing, eminently quaffable and great with food.  This was confirmed as we drank it throughout our 3 course meal at Sea Breeze restaurant, where it paired well with oysters, prawns, seared tuna and a lemon tart.
As famous wine critic Robert Parker said in the past:"... this wine possesses far better balance and sheer drinkability – not to mention more finesse – than 99% of the world’s Chardonnay I have experienced.”  High praise indeed.
