Average texture with light straw yellow color with greenish hue. Rich fragrance of lees and notes of pear and citrus. Citrus in the lingering aftertaste. Wonderful fresh and crisp Chardonnay.
Excellent as an aperitif, with exotic salads, fish and white meat preparations in light sauces. Food friendly!
About the winery:
The story about this historic estate dates 300 years back to 1692 when Willem Barend Lubbe settled on the flanks of the Bottelary hills. The property counts 273 hectares of which 163 are planted with vines. The vineyards enjoy the Atlantic sea breeze that brings refreshment every afternoon. The beautiful driveway and the towering fountain make the vineyard one of the most recognizable of the Cape. Neethlingshof aims high in protecting the biodiversity on the estate.
