Winemaker Notes

The soils’ limestone and clay components help the vines to develop strong citrus flavours with a pronounced nuttiness on the mid-palate which leads through to a clean finish with zesty citrus notes

Critical Acclaim

TA 93
Tim Atkin

Lesca hails from two limestone-based vineyards next to Bon Vallon and is fermented in second fill oak. Taut, refreshing and crisp, with subtle, fragrant wood, citrus-led intensity, impressive focus and no malolactic at all. Great value and a wine that is well worth cellaring. 2020-28

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

A subtle flintiness graces the nose of this bright and lively wine, with supporting tones of lightly grilled apple, peach pit, lemon verbena and a touch of freshly dried hay. The barely medium-weight palate shows good fruit intensity, with ample apple and underripe peach tones, and a lingering sweet spice accent that adds depth and interest. There’s great cut, thanks to the superbly focused natural acidity, and a clean, mineral freshness that lifts the finish.

De Wetshof Winery Image
De Wetshof is a well-established top Burgundian style winery based in Robertson (160km from Cape Town). Owner Danie De Wet is the pioneer of Chardonnay in South Africa, creating a wide range of styles (unwooded and wooded).

Danie began his winemaking career after studying at Geisenheim in Germany, returning to South Africa in the early 1970s to work alongside his father who began the De Wetshof Estate. Over the years, careful planning has gone into soil mapping the estate’s vineyards to identify the ideal terroir for the various varietals Danie nurtures both in the alluvial soils near the Breede River, as well as the lime rich slopes stretching up from the river. The Estate has become renowned for its elegant, award-winning wines and its innovative and advanced used of technology in the vineyard and cellar.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
