Heavy clay soils rich in limestone allow this Chardonnay to emit optimum varietal expression in a cloak of diversity and complexity. The Limelight Chardonnay has notes of grapefruit, nuts and summer fruit, with the complexity balanced by a nuanced elegance ending with a delicate ripeness and lip-smacking fresh tang.
The De Wetshof Sauvignon Blanc is soft with mild acids allowing fresh tropical flavours to come to the fore. Hints of green and ripe figs are present and the finish is crisp with a lasting clean minerality.

The American critic Robert Parker describes this wine as such: â€œThe De Wetshof Estate Limestone Hill Chardonnay never sees oak, and offers impeccably pure, refreshing apple, peach and lemon fruit, a lovely leesy richness of texture, and a nutty, chalky, fruit-filled finish of imposing length. Understated and less tropical than some of the better un-oaked Chardonnays, this wine possesses far better balance and sheer drinkability â€“ not to mention more finesse â€“ than 99% of the worldâ€™s Chardonnay I have experienced.â€
Beautiful rich complexities of fresh, full-ripe crispy berries and cherries are complemented by pronounced velvety-nutty flavours on the midpalate leading to smooth tannins on the finish. Maturation in the finest French oak assists in unleashing the typical Pinot Noir fruit flavours whilst maintaining all the characteristics of an elegant and accessible wine.
This Bordeaux-style wine captures the essence of one of the worldâ€™s great classical red cultivars to create a wine of elegance, power and individuality. The soil, sun and aspect of De Wetshof allows the wine to express freshness, power, elegance and a delicate plushness. Here intense dark berries, bittersweet chocolate and pencil shavings abound, while palate weight, depth of presence and a lasting finish enhance the experience of drinking a red wine of substance and pedigree.
