Danie de Wet Signature Wine for Woolworths
Adapted from information obtained from Dewetshof Estate
Woolworths has partnered with six of the country's best wine makers to bring to life their exclusive Signature Series, with De Wetshof selected as the only Signature Series Chardonnay. This latest collaboration, Signature Series Chardonnay 2016 by Danie De Wet, spent 12 months in first, second and third fill barrels. According to Allan Mullins, Wine aficionado and Cape Wine Master who was instrumental in the selection and blending process on this exclusive project, this achievement is another perfect example of De Wetshof's excellent Chardonnays which have grown and thrived in their limestone and clay soils. The wine is an ideal accompaniment to seared tuna in a sesame seed sauce, the nose has a chalky minerality with citrus pear tones. Danie says it is a great honour to be chosen for making a Signature Series wine with Allan. "Allan is one of the most astute wine-tasters in the country," says Danie. "He has that special gift of being able to create a wine that has commercial appeal for Woolworths' customer-base, while maintaining the integrity of the specific wine's sense of place and site-specific origin." The signature series wines are exclusively available at Woolworths store countrywide, or visit www.woolworths.co.za to shop online.
