Tasting Notes Drink: 

The De Wet family were one of the earliest settlers arriving in the Cape in 1694. As pioneers in the wine business they have a natural instinct and huge commitment to viticulture in the Robertson region. Danie de Wet pioneered this noble cultivar in South Africa and this Chardonnay is a fresh and expressive, unwooded version. The nose is delicate with aromas of lemon, honeysuckle blossom and peach. The wine was matured on its lees to produce a vibrant, lemony dry wine with a yeasty and delicate nutty finish.

Pair with: A fantastic all-rounder that pairs with most cheeses but works best with strong brie and soft cheese, complex alpine cheese and ewes milk blues.

Our Perfect Cheeseboard: Baron Bigod, Cornish Kern, Mrs Bell’s Blue, Russet Squire, Global Harvest Pear, Miller’s Damsel Charcoal, Fresh Figs and Medjool Dates.
