Winemaker's Notes:

This is a dry wine with no hard edges. It has great fruit harmonizing with a small compliment of Semillon to assist with its evolution. Smooth, tropical and marginally herbaceous with bright flavours! Excellent lingering finish with languid ripples of mixed fruits and plum, fig and kiwi. Drink now or cellar and enjoy the evolution to five, six, seven years!
My Notes:

About Bouchard Finlayson:

Established in 1989, Bouchard Finlayson is a boutique winery dedicated to the making of Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc wines of outstanding quality.

Located in the wine ward of Walker Bay, an hour and a half from Cape Town, the 125-hectare property currently has 22 hectares under vines; the rest is mountain land, covered by the spectacular indigenous ‘fynbos’ flora of the Western Cape. With only a small portion of the farm under vine Bouchard Finlayson is able to ensure the conservancy of the mountain land.
