The name De Wetshof has been synonymous with the production of fine wines in South Africa since the 1970’s. As the first registered wine estate in the Robertson Wine Valley, De Wetshof has become known internationally as South Africa’s eminent Chardonnay House due to the pioneering role it played in introducing this noble Burgundian grape to the country. The De Wet family’s winemaking heritage can, however, be traced back to 1694 when the first De Wets arrived at the Cape and immediately made a mark on the South African wine industry. For more than 40 years, the De Wetshof Wine Estate in Robertson has been producing renowned wines for connoisseurs and wine-lovers from around the world. Notably, De Wetshof was the first registered wine estate in this area, which is now known as the Valley of Wine and Roses. This estate is one of the very rare third-generation wine estates in the country, and remains known and loved as the introducer of the Chardonnay grape, the Burgundian, each influenced by various site specific environments.
The livery is classical De Wetshof, simple and elegant. A pale golden straw, gem bright with lime green flashes. The bouquet is a gentle one, fresh with both tropical fruits, crushed fynbos herbs and ripe white figs. These are echoed on the palate with full flavours in the mid palate and well into the long zippy finish.
