Tasting Notes

A delicious white that is lightly oaked for 3 months; the wood shows up on the palate as a fresh undertone of vanilla bean.

Staff Pick Notes

The next time you get invited to a wine tasting party, this bottle will be a surefire winner. Made by the third generation of the De Wet family, it’s a Chardonnay that demonstrates Old World qualities but with a New World price. Bonus: It’s guaranteed to throw even experienced blind tasters for a loop when trying to pin down its geographical location.
