Professional Wine Reviews for De Wetshof Chardonnay Bon Vallon 2014

Rated 90 by Stephen Tanzer
Pale, bright yellow. Floral aromas of lime and fresh apple. Densely packed and glyceral-rich but with lovely minerally lift. Concentrated but not all all heavy, owing to excellent acidity. An excellent Chardonnay value.
Rated 90 by Wine Spectator
Quite flattering, with lots of ginger, warm shortbread and grilled hazelnut notes flowing throughout, picking up quince and dried pear accents. Has a good juicy edge to keep the finish going despite the up-front opulence. Drink now through 2017.

Additional Information on De Wetshof Chardonnay Bon Vallon 2014

Winery: De Wetshof

Varietal: Chardonnay

For most people, the Chardonnay grape varietal is one of the quintessential white wine grapes. It isn't difficult to understand why; Chardonnay may well have started off in regions of France (where it is still used widely today in both single variety white wines as well as sparkling Champagne wines) but it is now grown in every wine producing country in the world. Indeed, it was the New World that took Chardonnay to some exciting new extremes – this relatively neutral grape has the fantastic ability to carry much of its terroir in the bottle, resulting in a fascinating range of flavors and styles. Furthermore, Chardonnay is one of the few white wine grapes which is well suited to aging, as can be seen in some of the excellent produce consistently coming out of Burgundy, and elsewhere in the world. With everything from buttery, creamy characteristics to vibrant tropical fruit notes, Chardonnay will never cease to surprise and impress.

Country: South Africa

Situated on the very tip of the African continent, South Africa has proved itself over three centuries to be an ideal location for producing a wide range of wines. Benefiting from something not dissimilar to a Mediterranean climate, with long, hot summers complemented by both Atlantic and Indian Ocean winds, the grapes which grow on the valleys, mountainsides and plains of this fascinating country can ripen to their fullest capacity, producing wines packed full of fruity flavors and an array of interesting and enticing aromas. As a former colony, South Africa has long since been home to a range of different nationalities, who each brought something of their wine culture with them. As such, many European grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Riesling and others have been given time to flourish in South Africa, allowing the country to develop a diverse group of wine types which are proving increasingly popular around the world.
