De Wetshof Estate "Limestone Hill" Unoaked (unwooded) 2015 Chardonnay, South Africa

De Wetshof Estate "Limestone Hill" Unoaked (unwooded) 2015 Chardonnay, South Africa, $15.99-$16.99, 89 points, was a light golden color.
Faint cantaloupe and lime aromas were okay.
Medium-bodied with good acidity and a rather neutral flavor profile were accented by tasty hints of flowers, lime, and pear on a stony base, all of which were pleasing and quite refreshing.
Finished long on slightly tart citrus notes with a perky 14% alcohol and a hint of white pepper.
Paired perfectly with my roasted chicken, red skin mashed potatoes, and butternut squash.

  1. Interesting use of "unwooded".

    1. VG: I thought so too, but I have another winery's worded this way.
