The Wetshof Sur Lie Chardonnay comes from vineyards located on a soil of gravel and lime, as we also find in France. Ideal for nice Chardonnay. The Wetshof Chardonnay is clear straw yellow in the glass with a nice open scent in the nose with pleasant citrus tones, wonderfully pure, apple, broad. In the mouth this great chardonnay is full of finesse and fresh acidity, minerally and fresh, apple and has a nice length. Daniel de Wet prefers to age this wine on its own must (sur lie) and not to age it on wood so that the wine gets the maximum freshness and due to the sur lie its complexity. This chardonnay has an unprecedented good price / quality ratio

The Wetshof Estate is located in the Robertson wine region, approximately 160 kilometers from Cape Town. Johann de Wet, the father of the current owner of De Wethof Estate, Danie, laid the foundation for the domain as it is today in 1952. For son Danie, it was not obvious at first to become a winemaker. In his heart, he actually wanted to be a veterinarian. His father persuaded him to go into wine, because he saw the future of the farm in it. He convinced his son by promising him that he could study in Geisenheim, Germany, in order to broaden his horizons in Europe. In 1972, upon his return, De Wetshof became the first private cellar in Robertson, separate from the local cooperative. Danie saw plenty of opportunities and planted noble varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Chardonnay. Over the years, De Wetshof has become the most famous producer of Chardonnay in South Africa. Under the leadership of Danie de Wet, De Wetshof has grown into one of the leading wine companies in South Africa. It measures no less than 200 hectares, planted with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
