#92 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2021
Soils rich in limestone and broken mountain rock on De Wetshof’s site-specific vineyards allow this wine to emit optimum varietal expression. An unwooded wine, Bon Vallon has a brisk and clean freshness leading into a wide spectrum of classic flavours including citrus, wild flowers and grilled nuts, with a nuanced minerality on the aftertaste.
This lithe white has a zesty edge, with mouthwatering acidity and a salty underpinning driving notes of nectarine, honeydew, blanched almond and pink grapefruit granita. Drink now through 2025. 6,300 cases made, 500 cases imported.
The 2021 Bon Vallon has a pretty apricot and citrus lemon bouquet that is defined and focused. The palate is well balanced and quite saline, with a fine bead of acidity and tangy lime on the finish. Fine.
