Delicious accessible and fresh Chardonnay from Wijnhuis De Wetshof from South Africa. To get a place in Danie de Wet's Sideways series, the Chardonnay must also be a wine that is wonderfully smooth and accessible, with an emphasis on freshness and liveliness. It is harvested from different clones of the estate's ten different Chardonnay clones, with an emphasis on grapes with lots of white fruit and elegance. The calcareous surface provides extra freshness and minerality in the wine. Fermentation and maturation take place in stainless steel and the wine rests for a while on the lie, the dead yeast cells, to give it some extra richness and fat. Delicious, it is smooth and fresh at the same time.

This wine has a wonderful open scent, lots of white fruit, pear and a touch of citrus, exotic and fragrant, in the taste a fresh style Chardonnay light-footed in taste, lime, fresh acidity and liveliness, peach, pear, invigorating. The wine is delicious to enjoy with a hearty fish soup, chicken from the grill, pasta with vongole, veal cutlet. Also fits well with a cozy drink with friends.
