Bouchard Finlayson Walker Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2017

19.95

A great balance has been achieved between fruit maturity and accommodating acid harmony in the final crafting of this wine. Flavours of tropical perfumes, gooseberry, litchi, green fig and herbaceousness captured over layers of creamy minerality. More tropical than grassy and expected to age well!

About This Wine...

Vintage 2015 has distinguished itself as a stellar event. A rain free summer presented an opportunity to capture near perfect, finely flavoured fruit of outstanding quality. Sauvignon Blanc is arguably our least known wine but surprises us by being our most successful label in terms of volume sales; and is certainly South Africa’s best performing white wine. Our geographic location, lying within five kilometres of the cool Atlantic Ocean, offers the most ideal temperature zone of the Cape. Added to this, the heavy shale clay soil that typifies the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley lends an inviting tropical tone to the flavour profile of this vintage.

VINIFICATION
A luscious palate and great acidity is achieved. This comes from the research of the winery’s non-traditional viticultural practice of implementing high-density plantings; offering greater physiological ripening at harvest time. Components are fermented
and matured for a minimum of 5 months on gross lees in stainless steel tanks prior to preparation for bottling. Malolactic fermentation is suppressed to retain freshness and vibrancy.

TASTING NOTES
A great balance has been achieved between fruit maturity and accommodating acid harmony in the final crafting of this wine. Flavours of tropical perfumes, gooseberry, litchi, green fig and herbaceousness captured over layers of creamy minerality. More tropical than grassy and expected to age well!

FOOD PAIRING
Pairs beautifully with fish dishes, crustaceans, sushi, vegetarian cuisine and cheese.
