Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Unwooded Chardonnay from Robertson, S Africa has a fruity tropical nose and a palate showing tasty pineapple, passionfruit and lemon/lime. Dry and medium-bodied with a long fruity finish.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This medium-bodied unoaked Chardonnay is medium lemon in colour and a nice option for those quaffers that don't always like oak influences in their wine. This Chardonnay was aged "sur lie" with naturally occurring yeasts. Aromas and flavours of citrus, apple floral, yeast, and butter. A good buttery fruit driven finish. Lobster with butter, pan seared scallops, creamy pastas.
Tasted: August 2015
The 2014 vintage of the Limestone Hill Chardonnay has lots of mouth-watering acidity and minerality. - Community Wine Reviews
