De Wetshof Bon Vallon Chardonnay, Robertson, South Africa 2017
Grape variety, 100% unwooded Chardonnay
Bon Vallon is an unwooded Chardonnay exuding a brisk and clean freshness of fresh green apple, classic flavours including citrus, wild flowers and grilled nuts, with zingy, mineral flavours lingering on the palate. A full bodied, dry white wine.
The succulent palate structure makes this an ideal food wine, superb with oysters, cream based pasta dishes, light curries as well as roast pork and veal dishes.
The Bon Vallon Chardonnay is chosen from specific clones. The wine is tank fermented, after which it is left on the lees for a few months, being stirred weekly until bottling.
