2016 Chardonnay Bouchard Finlayson
|Origin||South Africa, Walker Bay|
The 2016 Sans Barrique Chardonnay, as the name implies, saw no barrel-aging, and comes predominantly from the Crocodile’s Lair vineyard. It has a straightforward guava and white flower bouquet, although I would like to see more vigor. The palate is well balanced with fresh acidity, and quite linear and taut, displaying a slight Muscat-like influence toward the finish. Drinking range: 2018 - 2023 Neal Martin, vinous.com (Aug 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Immediate notes of clean, crisp apple and gooseberries attract ones attention, but underlining we discover a creamy layer of a convincing yeast personality which enhances the richness of this vintage! The palate is straightforward and tropical but the finish shows solid mineral qualities ending in a protracted dose of deliciousness!Winemaker's notes(Apr 2018)
