The Lesca has always been one of Danie de Wet's favorite wines. It is not without reason that he named him after his wife, whom he married in 1975, when he was 26. De Wet understood from an early age the importance of using specific clones in order to obtain a specific taste characterization of its wines. For Lesca clones are used that give the wine a distinct citrus-like character. These were planted in the late eighties and early nineties, so that they are now mature enough to produce wines with the necessary depth and concentration. The citrusy character of the wine is accentuated by a gravel and lime substrate, as we also find in France. Ideal for beautiful Chardonnay. Yields are limited and do not exceed sixty hectoliters per hectare. The wine is fermented in French oak barrels, selected for their subtle character, so that they emphasize the fruit in the wine. It only stays for three months or barrel, w hen a wine sees the light that excels in finesse and subtlety. Chardonnay at its finest.
