Wine: ‘Bon Vallon’
Producer: De Wetshof Estate
Country: South Africa
Notes: Danie de Wet pioneered this noble cultivar in South Africa & this Chardonnay is a fresh & expressive, unwooded version. The nose is delicate with aromas of lemon, honeysuckle blossom & peach. The wine was matured on its lees to produce a vibrant, lemony dry wine with a yeasty & delicate nutty finish. With typical attention to detail, Danie`s wife Lesca has designed classic packaging for this distinctive wine.
Producer Info: The De Wet family were one of the earliest settlers arriving in the Cape in 1694. As pioneers in the wine business they have a natural instinct & huge commitment to viticulture in the Robertson region. Ideally located on the slopes overlooking the Breede River, & under the ownership of Danie de Wet, this estate is at the forefront of quality white wine production in the Cape. The facade of the beautiful cellars is a replica of the historic first Customs House in Cape Town.
