ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About De Wetshof Bon Vallon Chardonnay

De Wetshof Bon Vallon Chardonnay has a brisk and clean freshness leading into a wide spectrum of classic flavors including citrus, wildflowers, and grilled nuts, with a nuanced minerality on the aftertaste. An un-oaked Chardonnay, this South African white is very refreshing, structured, and precise. The grapes are picked in the coolness of the morning, and the emphasis is on capturing the natural complexities of the Chardonnay grape immediately. Once de-stemming, pressing, and overnight settling is complete, the juice is racked off from the sediment and pumped into stainless steel tanks for the alcohol fermentation. After fermentation, the wine is left on the less under controlled temperatures. Weekly stirring of the lees ensures maximum flavors are released into the wine until ready for bottling.

About De Wetshof Estate

De Wetshof is a third-generation wine estate in South Africa’s Robertson Valley, where wine has been made for over 150 years. Here Danie de Wet, proprietor and cellarmaster, is assisted by sons and co-owners Johann (viticulture and marketing) and Peter (winemaker). De Wetshof Estate is a pioneer of noble white wines in South Africa and has also introduced superior red cultivars to the Robertson Wine Valley. On De Wetshof a firm belief prevails, namely that one cannot know where you are going unless one knows where you have come from. This is why the history of De Wetshof’s vineyards plays a profound role in determining present and future wine quality. Since the early 1970 meticulous records have been kept on each vineyard as to the plants’ reaction to soil-types, irrigation and the vagaries of climate, as well as their development and progress over the years. Each vineyard is thus vinified separately during the wine-making process, the wine-makers having a clear understanding of what the fruit of each vineyard’s labor is going to deliver during a specific year. This commitment to discovering and determining the various terrains on De Wetshof, as well as an absolute focus on site-specific vineyard management and winemaking, has been an integral part of the De Wetshof ethos from the outset and remains a vital and non-negotiable aspect of all the Estate’s wines.
