Bouchard Finlayson 2017

€640 Flacon de 10cl

Bouchard Finlayson’s Crocodile’s Lair Kaaimansgat is a pure Burgundian-style Chardonnay with a beautifully pale colour and a character reflecting the mountainous surroundings among which this vineyard lies. This is an aromatically alluring wine with the typical buttery, brioche-like notes of an oak-aged Chardonnay. The palate is dry yet fruity and deliciously rich, with a zesty finish that helps balance the wine beautifully. We guarantee you’ll love it.

Winemaker

Chris Albrecht

Prominent winemaker Chris Albrecht grew up in the golden triangle of South African winegrowing. After graduating in winemaking studies from Stellenbosch University, Chris immediately set off to widen his experience abroad. After three years in the vineyards of California, New Zealand and France, he returned to South Africa as winemaker at Bouchard Finlayson. In the stunning valley of Hemel-en-Aarde (meaning Heaven on Earth in English), is where you will find the Bouchard Finlayson wine estate. The winery was started in 1989 by the Burgundian winemaker Paul Bouchard in association with his South African alter-ego Peter Finlayson. Nowadays, it is one of the most highly acclaimed estates on the South African winemaking scene.
