De Wetshof Cuvee Brut

Classic grape varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir has been used to create a bottle-fermented sparkling wine expressing elegance and finesse. Flavours of brioche and toasted nuts complement tastes of berry-fruit in a wine made to add zest to any occasion.

De Wetshof Sauvignon Blanc 

The wine is soft with mild acids allowing fresh tropical flavours to come to the fore. Hints of green and ripe figs are present and the finish is crisp with a lasting clean minerality.

De Wetshof Limestone Hill Chardonnay

An unwooded Chardonnay named after the clay and lime rich soils in the vineyard of its origins that impart a textbook typical citrus fruit clarity allowing the wine ample complexity in its unadorned form.

De Wetshof Bon Vallon Chardonnay

An unwooded wine from the Bon Vallon vineyards with soils rich in limestone and broken mountain rock affording pristine varietal expression of classic citrus, wild flowers and grilled nut, nuanced with minerality on a brisk fresh finish.

De Wetshof The Site

The wine is named after the exact site of the vineyard from which this wine is made, a vineyard that has consistently shown greatness in its ability to produce quality wines. This unique site is honoured in a wine that reaffirms De Wetshof’s belief that single vineyard and site-specific vineyards are non-negotiable wherever the aim is to create great Chardonnay.

De Wetshof Bateleur Chardonnay

A legendary chardonnay from a spectacular vineyard rendering a unique eloquent wine with a tremendous core of pure citrus fruit character opulently oak fermented and matured adding toasty nutty complexity that unfolds in fascinating layers on a lingering finish

De Wetshof Riesling

An aromatic, crisp and delicate Alsace-style dry Rhine Riesling with an intriguing complex green apple, lime and spice character that finishes with finesse. Great food wine.

De Wetshof Finesse Chardonnay

The soils’ limestone and clay components help the vines to develop strong citrus flavours with a pronounced nuttiness on the mid-palate which leads through to a clean finish with zesty citrus notes. The wine matures beautifully, the years adding dimension and complexity.

De Wetshof Naissance Cabernet Sauvignon

Naissance means ‘birth’ and it is from this concept of the original Bordeaux origins of Cabernet Sauvignon that this wine takes its name and inspiration capturing the essence of one of the world’s great classical red grape varieties.

De Wetshof Pinot Noir 

Beautiful expressions of full-ripe berries and cherries complemented by pronounced velvety-nutty flavours and a smooth juicy finish. Maturation in the finest French oak allows nuance without compromising Pinot Noir fruit integrity.
